John Thomas is the Vice President of Community Engagement, Minnesota Timberwolves & Lynx, which is a natural fit for this former Center of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and team captain of the Minnesota Gophers. John brings his experience in business, including his tenure with Life Time Fitness as National Training Manager, to the Literacy Matters Board of Directors.
His natural leadership and compassionate nature exhibit themselves with his passion to help young people during their early educational years. John understands the importance of helping all kids to overcome illiteracy at a young age, and his work with the Minnesota Timberwolves & Lynx make this a slam dunk.
John has had tremendous impact on and off the basketball court, here in Minnesota and on teams across the country and around the world. We feel that we have gotten a first-round draft pick by having John join our Board.
