American Actress Rozonda Thomas
Thomas pursues all three strategies at once. His arguments on gun rights serve as a counterbalance to leftist warnings that police won’t protect individuals.
Early Life and Education
Thomas was raised in an impoverished African American neighborhood of Jackson, Mississippi. To escape violent street life and develop strong work ethics she read books as she lived at her grandparents’ home.
Thomas was hired by Missouri attorney general’s office following his graduation from Yale in 1974, where his views became increasingly conservative over time and opposed policies such as affirmative action and busing for school integration – positions which put him in direct conflict with national civil rights leaders and Black activists.
Thomas was known for writing highly contentious dissenting or concurring opinions that displayed his originalist interpretation of the Constitution, refusing to compromise with fellow justices, and rarely asking any questions during oral arguments, prompting criticism that this indicated lack of engagement and closed-minded approach to cases that came before him.
Thomas has made her mission in education one of “being better each day”. She holds both a bachelor’s and two master’s degrees from Winthrop University as well as being certified with National Board Certification as well as being honored as Teacher of the Year by her school district.
Over her career, she has published extensively in peer-reviewed journals across multiple fields of study. Additionally, she has curated multi-media installations and written children’s books.
Thomas has given generously through the Frank Thomas Charitable Foundation to support local causes like Boys & Girls Club. Additionally, she served on the American Sociological Association Board and as President of Population Association of America. A resident of Laurens County for many years, Thomas recently traveled to Washington D.C. on behalf of LCSD 55 to advocate for education there.
Achievement and Honors
On Monday night’s District 55 board meeting following reports that their school superintendent might be fired, many attendees attended with anger and claims of racial bias; they demanded justice while shouting and chanting throughout the three-hour session.
School superintendent was forced into an executive session where she could not freely express herself; yet when the meeting concluded she received both a raise and contract extension until 2022.
Recent recognition from the National School Public Relations Association as Superintendent to Watch comes as no surprise, since she is often called upon as a speaker at conferences and published many sociological articles herself. Furthermore, she is honored by both Organization of American Historians Darlene Clark Hine Award and Temple University Faculty Research Award – two such accolades for which she was recently nominated.
Thomas first appeared off-Broadway in The Guys and Woman In Mind before continuing her acting training with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio until his passing in 1982. Additionally, Thomas has participated in numerous regional theatre productions.
Thomas secured her own sitcom, That Girl, in 1966 – one of the first shows that focused on single working women and their struggles – lasting five years and producing 136 episodes. ABC and Clairol, sponsors of That Girl, wanted her character to get married at the end of each series; Thomas refused, fearing it would send out wrong signals to young women watching it.
On Monday, school district officials met in executive session to address reports that Thomas would be ousted from her position. Following several hours, chairwoman Cathy Little announced no action would be taken against Thomas’ contract.
