In 2021, Thomas was awarded the MVP (Most Valuable Professional) from the National Association of Student Financial Administrators. "I was flabbergasted the day I was contacted on being selected for the MVP award," said Thomas. "I was thinking, this must be a prank! But it came to fruition, and on the very same day that I was busy hosting our virtual conference for the CASFAA meeting as the conference chair. I heard all the buzz going on around me."
