NVP Augusta Thomas Honored by DC Mayor Vince Gray

Washington D.C.  Mayor Vincent Gray recently honored National Vice President, Augusta Thomas as a part of Women’s History Month. NVP Thomas was presented with a Meritorious Public Service Award for her work in civil, human, and
workplace rights. “During your years of service with AFGE, you’ve exhibited a high level of dedication and deserve to be commended”, said Mayor Gray while presenting NVP Thomas with a plaque.

NVP Thomas has been with AFGE since 1966 when she joined the union on her very first day as a VA Nurse. From there, NVP Thomas worked her way through the ranks having held almost every position within her local. In 2009 at the age of 86, Thomas decided to run for national office. Mayor Gray noted that when scrutinized about her age, NVP Thomas challenged the “young folks” to see if they could keep up with her.
