Claudia Thomas


Claudia was one of those people who had a finger on the pulse of what was needed in her community. For over 50 years, she worked as a teacher, school principal, assistant superintendent. After retirement, she was appointed as deputy mayor of Lakewood, her primary focus being the service to the children… by securing funding for prevention services, helping to found the Lakewood Youth Council, working with the America’s Promise movement. Due in part to her hard work, Lakewood was cited 6x as one of the 100 Best Communities for Young People in America.
