Greetings from Thomas!


I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend.  Taking the time to visit with family and friends is such a special way to start off the holiday season. 


Here at Thomas we have many things to be thankful for, especially hardworking students like Kalinda Cox MBA '14 and long-standing faculty members like Betty-Jane Meader and Roberta Tibbetts '69, '71 - all of whom you can read about in this issue. 


I wish you all a happy holiday season.  If you are in Waterville, be sure to visit us to see the ever-changing campus.

Kalinda Cox MBA '14 Awarded MHEAF Scholarship


This month, Thomas student Kalinda Cox MBA '14 was awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Maine Higher Education Assistance Foundation (MHEAF).  Kalinda, who is from Bethel, had the pleasure of receiving the scholarship at Skowhegan Savings Bank on her birthday.  She is pursuing her Master's degree in Forensic Accounting.


MHEAF, which is supported and managed by the Maine Bankers Association, awards scholarships to Maine high school graduates who are in good academic standing with demonstrated financial need.  Applicants must be majoring in a business-related program such as Accounting, Business Management, or Economics.


awardKalinda took part in the ceremony alongside representatives from area banks and the Maine State Legislature.  She transferred to Thomas from a college in upstate New York to return to Maine and also to benefit from Thomas's close-knit community, which has helped her to excel academically. 


"I was very pleased to find a school that offers Forensic Accounting," says Kalinda, "but Thomas also has the Guaranteed Job Placement Program to boot.  I am very proud to be here, and I have been able to grow not only as a student, but as an individual."


Special thanks to the Maine Bankers Association and MHEAF for their ongoing support of Thomas students, and congratulations to Kalinda Cox MBA '14.


 Thanksgiving Convocation


Each year the Thomas College community comes together in a time of celebration and thanksgiving.  We honor those who have reached milestones in their careers here at the College and also take a moment to think about what we cherish in our own lives. 


After the invocation was given by faculty member Rev. Cindy Lepley, the group enjoyed each other's company while feasting on a beautiful turkey dinner prepared by Jody Pelotte and the Sodexo staff.  Employee Nancy Charette commented, "It is a wonderful opportunity for the Thomas family to come together and kick off the holiday season as well as to celebrate employee milestones." It was the first time the new Student Commons function room has been used since its construction.


This year's employee recognition ceremony ended with the honoring of two of the College's longest serving staff, Betty-Jane Meader and Roberta Tibbetts '69, '71.  Said Provost Thomas Edwards, "More than years of service, we acknowledge the energy, the expertise, and enthusiasm they share with us."  


 Thomas faculty, staff, and students celebrate Thanksgiving in the
