My name is Connor Thomas and if you are a veteran, I hope I have shared an email or two with you, shaken your hand at a 4th of July parade, learned about a fellow veteran's needs from you, or preferably privileged to share a conversation with you about the care of our veterans. I started a Military Club as a freshman and have been serving my county and my country since then. I am a member of the NAACP and the NABVETS. 2018 is mapped out well, but there will certainly be occasions to present meritorious awards to my vets and I would welcome the opportunity to meet any of you or speak at an engagement to benefit American veterans. 

 

In high school I was an AP Scholar with Honor and ended up with twenty-two college credits. My GPA was 4.02. I worked extremely hard to earn a National ROTC Scholarship,  Citadel Scholarship, and VVA Scholarship. I am fortunate to be a cadet private at The Citadel. I made the Dean's List my first semester at The Citadel and will add a second major to begin my sophomore year. I compete here as a decathlete in track & field, even though my visit in September of 2016 was for football. With my work ethic and talents; I have been fortunate to receive much recognition, which you can read about under the awards & merit tab, if you are interested.

 

I love sports and being a collegiate athlete is something I have worked toward my entire athletic career.  In high school I was a All-Conference Pole Vaulter and an All-Conference Sprinter.  In 2016, I was an OHSAA Regional Finals Medalist as a pole vaulter and I am a two-time High School Football All-American. It was an honor to serve as a multi-year team captain in both sports.  I am a four-time Academic All-Conference Football player and a four-time Academic All-Conference Track & Field athlete. My devotion to athletics and my teammates is something I pour myself into year-round.

 

Currently, I am writing grants to improve services and assistance for my vets. Donations are always welcome and necessary as we are 100% volunteer. You can do so at www.mygivets.com. 

 

Thank You Senator

Senator Joe Uecker took me to lunch when I was fourteen to discuss high level military service and a career in government service. He is a regular speaker at My GI Foundation banquets and is always ready to lend a hand to support my philanthropy and service to veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
