Tom and his wife Brittney grew up in Lincoln and are both proud alumni of Lincoln College.  They recently moved back to Lincoln and are renovating a home near LC’s campus.  Tom serves as a board member for Lincoln Community Theatre which just celebrated a successful return to LC’s Johnston Center Stage in July.  When not on stage, behind the scenes or working on the house, Tom enjoys downtime with their three rescue black Labradors.

For Tom, Lincoln College runs in the family.  His father Dan served until 2007 as chair of the Fine Arts Department after retiring from a long career at Lincoln Community High School.  His mother Mary taught English for Lincoln College and retired in 2007 as Dean of Faculty.  Tom’s brother (Mike) and sister-in-law (Colleen) are also graduates of Lincoln College. Tom enjoyed a long and successful career in Pharmaceutical Sales as a Senior Sales Representative with Janssen Pharmaceutica, Inc. and as a Senior Sales Rep and Territory Field Trainer for Astellas Pharma US, Inc.

In April 2013, Tom returned to Lincoln College as a Development Officer in the Alumni & Advancement department.  Under the guidance of Vice President for Institutional Advancement Debbie Ackerman, Tom played a vital role in building relationships with Lincoln College alumni, donors, and friends, assisting in several alumni relations outreach functions, and raising funds for scholarships, special projects, and the LINCOLN Fund.

Tom graduated Lincoln College with honors and was the recipient of the Samuel B. Evans Award, the William B. McKinley Award, and was selected as the Student Laureate to the Lincoln Academy.  He was a member of the Lincoln College Express show choir under the tutelage of founder Bill Buffington, performed in several theatrical productions and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa.  Tom also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Eastern Illinois University and an MBA from the University of Illinois-Springfield.
