|JOSEPH THOMAS - MSU Varsity "S" Club Honorary Member - 2009|
Joseph Thomas has been connected to MSU athletics for 30 years. Joe is currently a senior partner with the Detroit law firm Driggers, Schultz, and Herbst, serves on numerous civic organizations, but he is the most proud of his family’s involvement with Spartan athletics, specifically football and basketball.
Joe was nurtured into the MSU family at an early age by his late uncle Norman Farhat who was another long time attorney and Spartan advocate. Joe’s dedication to the MSU Athletics family includes providing internships for qualified Spartan athletes, he volunteers his time to share thoughts and experiences with legal-field student athletes, he is a generous supporter of MSU athletics, and had been a member of the Ralph Young Fund for over 20 years.
Just recently Joe joined the “Champions Circle Wall” in the new Skandilarus addition to the Duffy Daugherty football building. Joe is not only a giver of time and money but a successful marketer of MSU and helps to motivate others sources to financially support the MSU Athletic department.
