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.
