  • Notes for Thomas

    Texas Forever! I have loved getting to work with you this year on the interregnum committee! Congrats on graduation!

    I’m sure you’ll hear this a lot, but you have been a gracious and engaged student. I always enjoyed you in class, mainly because you always got my jokes (or pretended to).

    Cousin! Congratulations on graduating. Thank you for the laughs and the sass. I look forward to all the post-grad adventures!

    Thomas, congratulations! You did it. I hope you feel all the joy at the end of your King’s journey. Well done.


    Thanks for always coming in clutch. I could never have gotten through that Fall Retreat without you! Great job with Interregnum this year and good luck in all your endeavors!

    Thomas, my friend, and cousin, I am so excited to see what the Lord has for you post-grad! Congratulations!!!!! I will miss all of our times together, whether it be trying to explain every reality TV show to you or eating your fancy desserts LOL. As Megan said, I’m looking forward to spending time with you soon!!!!!!

    Congratulations!! So excited for you and really appreciated your contributions to the King’s community. You’re awesome!

    Finally, someone who is as passionate about Texas and Whataburger as I am! These qualities will take you far in life. I will miss seeing you around!


    I am so glad to have gotten to know you and spend so much time with you. Your love and care for the House and its men is admirable. The school will never be the same without you around.

    I’m gonna miss you so much, Thomas! Make sure to come back to House events so we can catch up!

    May your life be as grand and prosperous as the great country of Texas. God speed!

    Thomas!! Congrats. Thank you for coaching SBA’s powderpuff team and for always bringing a touch of the South everywhere you go! I hope you love your future job as much as you love Texas, you deserve it.


    You were one of my favorite teammates to practice and play alongside freshman year when we first arrived, and I’m glad I got to know you better in the years that followed. Your strong faith (to God, the Pope, and TEX-US) is inspiring, and seeing you always made my day better. Some of my favorite memories are our library conversations and our trip out to Blander’s house. I hope to go to the pub with you the next time we’re both in the City. Keep in touch my guy,

    Eddie VanZandt


    I still remember first meeting you five years ago at Invisio and being confused and intimidated at the big city and school. Look at you know! You’ve been a faithful friend and companion these past years and you’ve always been willing to be genuine and caring. You’ve got a great heart and mind but your character and faith are what truly define you. I know that you will find challenges and success wherever you go and you will love it. Congratulations and I hope we can stay in touch!

    I’m so glad we got to serve on the Interregnum Committee together and that we became friends! What would I have done without your spreadsheets? (Torn my hair out.) You are always willing to help and do hard work for someone else. You cared for the school and your friends so well at King’s and I’m lucky to have seen a small part of that. I think you are wonderful! Wishing you all the best Thomas, and I hope we stay in touch!

    Thomas, you’ve served Publius well with your relentless critical thinking and humor! Thank you for all you’ve done for King’s!!

    Thomas, you’re such a great guy! I have SO enjoyed getting to know you these past four years. Being your roommate was a blast, but it wrecked my sleep schedule. 😉 Our late-night convos were so special to me, some of my most precious moments of college. I’m so grateful for your friendship!

    I’m honored to know and a true fan of both the man you currently are and the one you are becoming. Also appreciative of your spare fries from Popeyes…keep ’em coming.

    Thanks for being my fellow Texan in Con Law. I can always count on you give me a yee haw (even a sad yee haw) and I hope you keep listening to the song Strawberry Wine even though I will always insist that that is a terrible, terrible song.

    Congratulations, Thomas!! YOU DID THE THING.

    Can’t wait to see all the next steps for you! You are an amazingly talented person. Thanks for keeping J sane during all those events. 😉

    Thomas, you are so caring, so thoughtful, so passionate, and so wise. I’m so glad we got to be in research writing so that I could see you glow up about the wonders of good handwriting. I’m so grateful for your patience with my questions about Catholicism (I’m sure I’ve asked the same thing multiple times). Most of all, I’m amazed at the steadfastness with which you care for those around. Your resilience and kind heart will serve you well everywhere you go!

    THOMAS! It has been a pleasure getting to know an amazing fellow Texan like yourself over the years. I cannot wait to see what you go on to accomplish. Hit me up if you need any advice or if I can help open my network in any way. Congrats man! – and keep that power swing alive! –

    THOMAS PETER GATT! Will always enjoy our mem’s trying to juggle life senior year and all else. Especially loved getting to hang with you and our Catholic Center fam. Thanks for being a #bomb #cook.

    I’m so stoked to see where you go next!! Cheers to ya!!

    Thomas!!! Congratulations. Your intentionality and loyalty will take you far in life. Thank you for your leadership in the Publius Society. You were the backbone of that org. I wish you the very best going forward.

    Thomas, one of my NYC sons, your warmth and exuberant spirit bring light to everyone you meet. Use it in service to Him alone, as your precious parents have taught you. We are celebrating with you and sending our love.

    Thomas! I am so happy for you. It’s been a Joy working with you and getting to know you. I cant thank you enough for always being so helpful and with such an incredible disposition. Remember to keep Him first in your life!!
    Jeremiah 29:11

    Congratulations! It has been a pleasure knowing you, working with you and seeing you throughout the halls of King’s. You are truly at the commencement of a brand new voyage and I wish you the absolute best on this achievement and whatever else you will do in the next phase of life.

    God bless you!

    Rom 9:16

    Oh Thomas. One of the few lonely guys up there in Finance! We will sure miss you! I’ve enjoyed getting to know you and seeing you quietly take part in so much. But in doing so, you always blew us all away by how smart and mature you were. Those are such amazing qualities. It’s going to be hard walking up to the six floor now, heading down the hall over to the cubicles and not seeing you there. Thank you for serving us so well and for always smiling! May many blessings come your way.

    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

    It was a pleasure to get to know you in PWS class this Spring. I appreciate your thoughtful questions and mature perspective. Blessings to you as you go forward in your life and career. I know you will go far. “Oh Lord, teach us to number our days so that we may present to you, a heart of worship.” Psalm 90:12. Best Wishes, Prof. Glader

    Thomas!! Congrats!! I’m grateful we got to work together this year. I’ll cherish all the times we crossed paths in the library, encouraging each other when we both were really struggling through it. Haha! I can’t believe the year is over. I know wherever you find yourself after graduation, you will be admired for your dedication.

    Thomas! Congratulations. You have such a keen mind and curious spirit. Thank you for keeping classes interesting, even though your hand writing is almost impossible to read. Iowa > Texas.

    CONGRATS DUDE! It was a joy being fellow students and co-workers with you at King’s. You are always thoughtful, calm, and a good friend. So excited for you and félicitations!!

    Thomas! Congrats, friend. I enjoyed being softball teammates and talking all things life and enneagram with you. Best of luck as you begin this new season!


    It was a pleasure having you as a student in several courses. Foundations of Politics, Con Law, Statesmanship–did I forget any? Please accept my congratulations on earning your PPE degree. In addition, thanks for your many contributions to the Interregnum Committee in 2019-20. Hoping that we stay in touch. Wishing you many blessings in your life after TKC.

    Thomas! You are such a friendly guy and I have cherished getting to know you. I will never forget when you, Craig, and Michael Terry were my first roommates ever. You are gonna do great things in life. I can’t wait to hear about all of the awesome things you do!

    Congratulations, Thomas! You have an infectious positivity about you, and I’ve always enjoyed working with you or just catching up. I wish you the best post-King’s!
