Who is Curt Thomas? In a few words, Curt was often times referred as the least likely to succeed. Most times Curt was misunderstood and misjudged. Curt would allow those negative words to influence his thoughts and path to success. Countless times Curt thought of quitting his desires to succeed and just give up on life. However, it was during Curt’s lowest moments in life that he began to develop strategies to bounce back from failure to success. Curt went from failing the 9th grade to graduating on time with the rest of his classmates at Manning High School. Curt thought about quitting Basic Training for the Air Force because his father nearly lost his life due to a car accident but he did not quit. Curt went on to graduating Basic Training and served honorably 4 years while obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Education from Carolina Bible Institute (magna cum laude).
Curt failed the police academy twice while working at a local police department. However, Curt’s dream was to be a South Carolina State Trooper. Even with the two prior failed attempts on the local level, he applied on the state level and graduated the toughest law enforcement training that the South Carolina has to offer. However, during this tough time in his life, Curt redeveloped powerful leadership skills and personal growth development strategies that cause him to bounce back in all areas. Curt went from almost being separated from the Air Force to being awarded the Airmen of the Year for the entire base. Curt’s strategy helped him be selected as their lead character of two commercials and travel the country with a university football team and escort professional golfers in the PGA.
In the summer of 2014, Curt resigned from the South Carolina Highway Patrol as a State Trooper after nearly 7 years to pursue becoming an entrepreneur. During his time with the Highway Patrol, Curt starred in several TV commercials, escorted professional golfers and traveled around the nation with a university football team. Curt still serves the country as a Reservist in the United States Air Force.
