Mr. Thomas is a familiar face to the FUSD community. He was first appointed to the Florence Unified School Board in January of 2002 and since then has been a consistent advocate for our district's families and students. During his tenure, Mr. Thomas has served as Governing Board President, Vice-President and Member. Mr. Thomas will fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Ms. Denise Guenther. Mr. Thomas will be seated until December 31, 2022.
His previous years of service along with his extensive knowledge of school board policies and connection to the Florence and San Tan Valley communities will enable a smooth transition into the vacant seat. Mr. Thomas is looking forward to working with the current board members and is eager to celebrate the end of the year activities throughout the district. He especially looks forward to the high school graduation ceremonies. When he heard the news of his appointment, Mr. Thomas stated, “I want to thank Superintendent Broussard for the honor and privilege of appointing me to serve on the Governing Board for FUSD #1.”
