TCHS Commercial & Graphic Arts instructor Mr. Al Tucker says, "Divya is one of the busiest people I know. She has been an integral part of our program for the past two years and she's a real pleasure to work with. Her work ethic foreshadows a young woman that is going to be amazingly successful. She is smart, loves working with others, and she is fun to be around. I wish her all the best!"

TCHS Social Studies instructor Heather Mulford adds, "Divya has been on the TCHS Academic Competition team for 2 years, serving as our captain for the 2018-2019 school year. She was also voted to be our MVP for the TCHS team from all 3 campuses and will be honored at the banquet for Chester County Champions on May 16th. Divya also led the Pickering Current Events team to victory 2 years in a row and I will miss her competitive spirit and incredible work ethic. She is kind, hardworking and always willing to give up her free time to help her classmates and teachers at TCHS-Pickering."

Divya plans to study visual arts at the University of the Arts in London this fall.
