In Memory of Vincent Johns Thomas

We are saddened by the loss of former Norfolk Mayor Vincent Johns Thomas on November 7, 2015.

We appreciate his family designating the Hampton Roads Community Foundation for memorial gifts to the Vincent J. Thomas Fund. It supports scholarships for Norfolk Public School graduates attending Vince’s alma mater, Virginia Military Institute. Friends and colleagues started the scholarship in 1984 in honor of Vince’s service to the city of Norfolk.
