“Tommy,” originally became involved in NASP® in 2003, while serving as a high school principal and NASP® coach. Several of the first NASP® state champions were on the Somerset High School team that Tommy coached. He has seen, first-hand, how the program positively impacts students, parents, and teachers. He has seen NASP® promote constructive teacher/student relationships, academic motivation and the promotion of students becoming involved with their school – many for the first time.
Tommy served as a teacher, principal, and superintendent in public education in Kentucky schools for over 30 years. Tommy was hired in 2015 to serve as NASP®’s first Vice President and General Manager. He is now the second President since the inception of NASP® in 2002. Tommy believes in the impact of NASP® and the many attributes that are bestowed on students through participation.
Tommy lives in Somerset, Kentucky with his wife, Cecilia. He is active in his church and is an avid turkey and waterfowl hunter as well as a dedicated Catfish angler.
