Mentor & Educator
Tom Sturges has served as a volunteer teacher at Grandview Elementary School in Manhattan Beach, and at the Foshay Learning Center in South Los Angeles. Sturges has received over 42 commendations for his volunteerism. His philanthropy was the subject of the film Witness to a Dream, which followed his mentoring of students in the program from grade school through their entry into college. An album complementing the film was later released which featured the collective works of Tom’s mentees from 1997-2003.
