The reason I would like to nominate Tom Thurmond for Legacy Magazine MDI Man of the Year is that he has been tireless in his efforts not only in improving this region, but other regions as well. He has consistently stepped up not only into leadership positions, yet more importantly has stepped up when men have ended early or completed and there was no one to fill their shoes. He has always done so willingly, and led with integrity and a moral compass second to none.
He is a man who can be counted on to do what he says he will, and is always looking to challenge and bring out the best in other men. I have served with him, he has been a teammate, and I am proud to call him my friend. In this man’s opinion, his nomination is no brainer and much deserved.
