2024 Paul Thompson Scholar

2024 Paul Thompson Scholar, Noel Felix III.

His Story

Paul received his education at Parker Dam Elementary and later graduated from Delano High School. He continued his journey of knowledge at Fresno State University where he received a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters of Business Administration.

In his professional life, Paul had a successful career. He worked as a Sales Manager at Masco, Top Build, Sacramento Building Products, and also as a Territory Manager at Stonhard, RPM.

Beyond his work, Paul had a passion for cooking and barbecuing. He found joy in preparing meals for his friends and family. Tailgating with his friends before a Bulldog game was the perfect way to use his barbecue skills. He was also a huge Dodger fan who lived and died with every win and loss.

Paul’s wife, Kris Thompson is a proud Central Unified employee and choose to celebrate the memory of her husband through the gift of scholarship. She has trusted the Foundation with this gift in hopes to find a graduating senior pursuing a business degree at Fresno State.
