Miss Abigail Thompson
Miss Thompson is an alumna of Heritage. In 2016, she graduated from the University of Northwestern--St. Paul with a BA in Vocal Performance and Bible, and a minor in Theatre . Being a Bible teacher, choir director, and theatre director at HCS, she is so grateful that God has led her back here to make use of all of her skills and passions.
At home, she reads books by dead British Christians and watches Masterpiece on PBS. In the summers, she travels all she can, and produces Christ-centered plays with her company, Royal Bird Theatre, LLC. Also, she has a modest comic book collection.
