Tom C. Frost, chairman emeritus of Frost Bank, was honored for completing his sixth term on the Board of Governors of TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas at a June 4 meeting.
Frost, a member of the TMI class of 1945, also served the school as chairman of the 2006-2008 “We’re on a Mission” capital campaign that surpassed its goal of $12.5 million to build All Saints Chapel and three new residence halls. He has been an honoree at the school’s Stars Over TMI gala and was named Alumnus of the Year. He joined the Board of Governors in 1997 and previously had served on the Board of Trustees.
TMI’s Frost Athletic Center is named in his honor, recognizing his commitment not only to the structure but to the TMI community and to the TMI educational experience as a whole.
“There is no question that TMI would not be the school it is today without Tom’s vision, commitment, support, and decades-long involvement,” said the Rt. Rev. Gary R. Lillibridge, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas and chairman of the TMI Board of Governors. “We have been extraordinarily blessed by Tom’s gifted leadership, his service, and his friendship; and we look forward to his continuing involvement even as his board service comes to an end.”
Frost plans to become involved with the work of the TMI Commissioners, a group of alumni and other friends of the school who have made extraordinarily valuable contributions and are charged with enhancing and supporting its mission.
The mission of TMI is to provide an excellent educational community, with values based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, challenging motivated students to develop their full potential in service and leadership.
