Thomas Students Lend a Hand

  

Students from Thomas College athletic teams lent a helping hand to the gift-giving program through the Maine Children's Home for Little Wanderers in Waterville. They helped to load more than 1,600 gift boxes into trucks heading to children this holiday season through the agency's Christmas Program. This one-of-a-kind program provides new toys, books, games, and new, warm clothing to qualifying disadvantaged children throughout Maine.

 

 

 

"We have been able to help the Home for Little Wanderers for the last two years with this program, and the teams really feel good about helping out," said Coach Greg King.  For more information about the Terriers, click here.

 

                   

 

 Thomas Students Graduate from the

Maine Criminal Justice Academy 

 

 


On January 16, with hundreds of family members and law enforcement from around the state, four students from Thomas graduated from the training program at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.

 

Michael E. Armstrong '11, Thomas J. Ellis '11, Thomas J. Hamilton '11, and Jesse B. Peasley '11 all successfully finished the rigorous program. They were reminded, "You cannot and will not be able to do this job on your own. You will need your friends, family, and fellow officers for support," by Class President Warden Troy A. Thibodeau.

 

After being addressed by Secretary of State Charlie Summers, each one of the students had his or her badge pinned on by a family member and a member of law enforcement. Thomas Professor Steven Giorgetti, formerly the Director at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, assisted in pinning each one of the Thomas students.

 

The ceremony ended with all of the new officers reciting the oath they are sworn to uphold: "On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character, or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the Constitution, my community, and the agency I serve."

 

 

Congratulations to all of the graduates!
