Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Twelve years ago Derrel Thomas pioneered a new trail in the lives of those who walk the path of our future; our children. He sets the standard of excellence in both academics and education as the primary goal.
Today, The Derrel Thomas Foundation has established a highly qualified, caring, and stable programs which seek to address the needs of our challenged youth, recognizing their special qualities and tapping into their varied interests and talents. We believe in providing an encouraging program that prepares our children academically and nurtures them in such a positive way, that their paths are bound for greatness. With this strong foundation, the program allocates precious time to provide the additional focus on positive character development, good sportsmanship, academics, and leadership in our effort to educate the hearts and minds. We invite you to take a tour of the website. We hope you take the steps of joining us in support of our children with the gift of encouragement today; it will be the best investment of your life.
