Laaddddies and gennntlemen. It gives me great pleasure to introduce Laconia High School's one and only Assistant to the Principal, Jeeeeeff Thomas! Anyone, who has attended a home sports events and heard Mr. Thomas (also known as Mr. T) announce the starting line ups, would agree this is the only way to introduce HIM. Although Mr. Thomas has worked in administration for twenty-eight years, he is in his seventeenth year at Laconia. Mr. Thomas, who grew up in Berlin, Wisconsin, wears many hats at Laconia: Activities and Sports Director, Transportation Director, Attendance Officer, and Safety Director. As if all these tasks weren't enough to keep Mr. T busy, he also has been a volunteer firefighter for twenty-seven years. When he finds free time in his busy schedule, he enjoys watching or playing basketball and baseball, hunting, fishing, working with wood or listening to Do-Wop music from the 50s and 60s. Mr. Thomas and his wife, Sheila, have a daughter, Maggie and a son, Nathan.
