Coming in on the heels of outgoing USATF Alumni Association (USATFAA) President Sharrieffa Barksdale and Vice President Gary Morgan, Thomas E. Johnson has been chosen as the next President of the USATFAA. While Barksdale, has been named the Manager of Alumni Relations and Morgan as Michigan Chapter President of Olympians and Paralympians Association, Thomas will continue to move the alumni association forward as we increase activities and opportunities for our members, says Barksdale.

Thomas has been an active member as well as an integral part of the revitalization and resurgence of the Alumni Association since 2000. He has been a Member At Large and has served as the Social Coordinator and Communications Advisor to past presidents Willie Banks and Sharrieffa Barksdale. While serving in these roles Thomas has been responsible for several social functions and outreach programs that were instrumental in the increase of awareness and active participation in USATF sponsored activities, such as the Jackie Joyner Kersee Award, the Relay for Boston and the Celebrity All-Star Basketball game held at the USA Olympic Trials. These activities have grown into hall marks and traditions of the USATF organization. As the communications Advisor Thomas has advised and written critical communications plans and directives to assist with the messaging and promotions of Alumni activities that have enabled the president to deliver sound and deliberate messaging to reenergize alumni and motivate them to action.

Thomas is no stranger to the sport of Track & Field and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise as an athlete and servant leader. Thomas has coached several Olympians, World Champions, high school and middle school state champions as well as youth and junior champions throughout his career. Thomas competed in the World Class Athlete Program (WCAP) for the United States Army after two years at Florida State University. He competed in the World Military Games, winning gold and bronze medals from 1987-1989. He achieved a number two world ranking in the 800m and competed in the 1988 Olympic Trials, advancing to the semi-finals. Thomas returned to collegiate athletics at the University of Mississippi, earning All-American honors in the 800m and 4x400m in 1990. He won 2 Silver medals in the 1990 Olympic Sports Festival and finished runner-up in the 400m SEC Outdoor Championships and again earned All-American in the 4x400m relay in 1991 NCAA.

Thomas successfully combined military service as a commissioned officer and commander in the United States Army as well as an athlete and certified coach on national youth, junior and collegiate teams. After graduating from Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale as an All-American and 4x400m Relay State Champion, Thomas attended Florida State University where he set and still holds the school records for 500m and 600m indoor events. He was chosen as an All-American in the 4x400m after his freshman season. During the 1986 season at FSU, Thomas set a World leading time in the 500m and was selected as an All-American, while competing in the NCAA Championship in the 500m and 4x400m indoor relay.

Thomas returned to the U.S. Army in 1992 as a Field Artillery Officer and served in over 12 different assignments as well as a Battery Commander in 217 Field Artillery, Camp Hovey, South Korea. He also served 2-Tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) in 2003 and 2005 as a CFLCC Public Affairs officer and Commander of the 14th Public Affairs Detachment (OIF). Thomas retired from the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Pentagon, Washington, D.C. in 2009 and returned home to Ft. Lauderdale. Where he became an educator, teaching leadership as a JROTC Senior Army Instructor (SAI).

He was most recently elected to serve as the Men’s Chair for USATF-FL and is a USATF Level 1 and Youth Level 2 certified coach, National Level Certified Official as well as an AAC Event Leader for Middle Distance.

Thomas graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism, and earned his Master’s degree in Christian Studies from Trinity International University, Florida Campus in 2012. Thomas founded Behind the Athlete (BTA) Track Club in 2014. Thomas retired as Field Grade Officer in the rank of Major and has received numerous military honors for his 23 years of military service. “I am excited about the opportunity to continue the rich tradition of motivating alumni to be actively engaged and to be the best advocate for retiring athletes as they transition into various careers after athletics. This is a special opportunity to influence the lives of the future by providing sound and fundamental programs and activities to continue success”.
