Tina Thames

City Council
Title: Council Member Ward 1

I am originally from Forest, Mississippi and moved to St. Louis after high school graduation in 1974.  Although I have lived in other residents, I have been a long-time resident of the City of Black Jack since the summer of 1986.  I have lived in Black Jack, Missouri for 35 years. I am currently a trustee for the City of Black Jack and have been in this position for two years of which I enjoy serving my community.

I am the mother of four adult children and six grand children. All my adult children are small business entrepreneurs and two of them served in the armed services. 

I retired from AT&T where I was employed for 30 years.  During my service there, I held non management positions and retired as Specialist - IT Services Management.  I am a graduate of Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Information Technology (Cum Laude). 

I am a member of Faith Miracle Temple where I am the Director of a ministry called "Threads of Love".  The ministry provide new clothing to the community and our church has been featured on the local news. I also worked with prosecuting attorney Wesley Bell's office assisting 6 dads who completed a program with the Urban League. I volunteer with a nonprofit organization where I help prepare clothing and various other items donated by different companies before giving them out to churches and community organizations. I am an Urban League volunteer and help with food giveaways and a variety of other projects. I have a long-time relationship with a local nursing home where my father and grandmother were past residents.
