Meet Alex Thonet
Alex Thonet knows exactly what he wants to be when he finishes his education. "I want to own a successful restaurant in the Twin Cities," he says without hesitation. "That has always been my dream. I love food and (having a successful restaurant) would be awesome!"
To that end, Alex's focus is on business. He likes the business classes offered at CDH and counts business teacher John Pohl among his favorite teachers. "I learn a lot from him," Alex says.
Alex and his younger brother, Charlie, a CDH junior, are members of Nativity of Our Lord Parish and attended elementary school there.
When he is not dreaming of owning his own business, Alex plays football and is the manager of the CDH varsity hockey team.
Post-secondary plans include attending the University of St. Thomas where he plans to enroll in the Entrepreneurship Program offered there.
"Thanks to CDH donors, I am able to attend this great school," Alex says. "The education and opportunity at CDH is so important. Without our donors, it would not be possible."
