Ms. Thomas was vice president of the Santa Fe Resi­dence Hall her freshman year and a Residential Assistant at West Residence Hall during her sophomore, junior and senior year. Ms. Thomas, who made the Dean’s or President’s list every se­mester, will pursue a career in film editing, writ­ing and directing following somewhat in the foot­steps of her father who received his BS degree in the same field from the University of Texas in the mid-1980s. Ms. Thomas, who graduated in the top ten percent of her class of 2017, has secured employment with Irving Community Television and will be working there while making her home in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Ms. Thomas is the granddaughter of Marcia Thomas and the late Donald Thomas and the great-grandaughter of the late Dorothy Craver and the late Ida Swain. Both her grandmothers, Pat Cunniff of Tyler and Marcia Thomas of Jefferson attended the graduation ceremony as well as the annual block party on the campus along with other relatives and friends. A celebration luncheon was held at Luigi’s Italian Restaurant in Denton following the graduation ceremony which saw nearly 5000 stu­dents graduate from UNT’s Spring semester.
