Mistie Copas Thomas
I am so grateful that we moved to Lawrence in 1989. I am very blessed and proud to call Lawrence my home. I have been married 17 years and I have two children that both graduated from LHS. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, photography, scrapbooking, flower arranging, and snuggling with my cat!
I received my Bachelor of Social Work Degree from Kansas University and my Masters of Social Work Degree from Washburn University. Prior to becoming employed with the school district, I worked in child welfare for 12 years. I started my career with the district as the Transition Coordinator at C-Tran and now I am the Transition Coordinator here at LHS. I am one of those lucky people that gets to say that I truly love my job. It provides me with the opportunity to talk to students about their dreams for their future. We focus on their goals for after high school, develop a plan to meet those goals, and then we all work together to carry out those plans. It’s extremely rewarding.
As always, it’s a great day to be a lion.
