The Thompson family has been at Ben Lippen School for almost ten years…since their oldest daughter, Lily, was in kindergarten. This year, all three of the Thompson girls are in middle school at Ben Lippen and are involved in a wide array of activities that stretch from cheer and sporting clays to choir and mock trial. Both Debbie and Jay are extremely active as parents in the Ben Lippen community. Debbie volunteers in a multitude of ways to help Ben Lippen run more smoothly. She is always willing to lend a hand wherever there is a need. Jay, in addition to being a Ben Lippen School board member, helped start the Ben Lippen Mock Trial team in the middle school last year. The team was so successful that it has expanded into our high school!
