Thomas Gilbert is the Grand Marshal of the MWHS 2022 Homecoming Parade. He was nominated by members of the MWISD staff and community in recognition of his outstanding and selfless commitment to service.

After graduating in 1975 from McGregor High School, Mr. Gilbert spent the next 20 years in the Army National Guard serving his country. He furthered his military career as a Drill Sergeant, training the next generation of our Nation’s servicemen.

Thomas and his wife Sandra have 5 children, 20 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren, many of whom graduated from Mineral Wells High School. Thomas’s most recent achievement was his ordination as an African Methodist Episcopal Church minister. He currently serves at Brownwood Lee Chapel where he has been pastoring for 4 years.

Mineral Wells ISD is proud to honor Thomas Gilbert for his contributions to the community and the district; his example of hard work and dedicated service along with his humility and grace serve as a credit to our organization.
