My name is Connor Thomas and if you are a veteran, I hope I have shared email with you via my website, shaken your hand at a 4th of July Parade, learned about a fellow veteran's needs from you, or was privileged to share a conversation with you at a veteran function. I started a Military Club as a freshman and have been serving my county and my country since then. The My GI partnership with the Woodfill AUSAChapter is important and I sincerely thank those guys. They just want to see a young soldier realize his dream and effect change. 2017 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. 

 

I am a AP Scholar with Honor and added three AP courses my senior year and I am awaiting those scores. My GPA is 4.02. I have worked extremely hard to earn a National ROTC Scholarship and will be attending The Citadel and plan to leave my thumbprint on all disciplines at The Citadel. I will compete as a decathlete in track & field, even though my visit in September 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.

 

I love sports and being a collegiate athlete is something I have worked toward my entire athletic career.  I am a All-Conference Pole Vaulter and an All-Conference Sprinter.  Last year 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 team captain in both sports. I was invited to play in The NUC High School All-American Bowl this December in Atlanta. I was also invited to attend The NUC Top 100 Camp in Texas too. 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.

 

Thank You Senator

On Monday, May 15th, 2017 Senator Joe Uecker was my guest speaker at the 2017 My GI Foundation Soldier of The Year Banquet. Senator Uecker has been kind enough to attend two events I have hosted for my veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
