Lt Col J. Thomas IV

My name is J. Thomas and I am originally from Bristol Tennessee. I am excited to be joining the Maiden High School team as the new Air Force Junior ROTC, Senior Aerospace Science Instructor after 21 years of military service. My wife Heather and I have been married for 19 years and have three kids, Jillian, Keller and Caroline. I grew up on the family farm in Bristol TN, graduated from Purdue University and was commissioned in the Air Force through the ROTC program. I spent my military career working with community, family, hospitality and human resource programs during ten duty assignments in the US and abroad. We enjoy family time, serving in our church and community and exploring new areas. We are so excited to be joining the Catawba County community.
