Thomas is new CCS AD

Concord Christian School recently hired Lincoln Thomas as its new athletic director.

A Greenville native and “proud Vol For Life” as a 1993 University of Tennessee graduate, Thomas most recently served as assistant athletic director at The King’s Academy in Seymour.

Don Snider, CCS head of school, had been interim AD while the school had searched for “the right fit,” said Lorna Keeton, CCS director of marketing and development.

“I am excited to hire someone with Lincoln’s depth of experience and proven track record in areas of athletic administration,” Snider said. “It is our desire that athletic teams at Concord are very competitive while exhibiting the highest levels of sportsmanship.

“I believe under coach Thomas’ leadership that both of these goals will be prioritized and achieved,” he added.

Thomas, who also has a master’s degree from David Lipscomb University, has a 24-year career in education and mentoring that included seven years serving in various capacities at Grace Christian Academy, and a stint as assistant coach and strength coach for Webb School of Knoxville’s high school girls basketball team.

“I love to develop student athletes with an identity in Christ,” Thomas said. “My favorite thing about working with student athletes is the opportunity to guide kids in an athletic setting, helping them achieve greater focus and better understanding; that their walk with Christ can positively impact and advance their athletic career in the best ways.”

Thomas and his wife, Natalie Thomas, have four children: twins Emory and Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ellis.
