Trevor Thompson

Who Is Trevor?

That’s a great question! As a matter of fact, it’s a question that I’m still trying to figure out myself! As of now, I am a student at Washington State University where I study business with an emphasis on marketing. I am a graphic designer on the side currently working part time for WSU’s Student Organization Center’s ImageShop. Besides marketing and graphic design, I aspire to learn how to design and code websites and phone apps.

 

Enough of my professional life, time to get to the fun stuff! Believe it or not, I’m kind of a “closet nerd”. Whether it’s the newest phones coming out on the market, computer or some other electronic toy getting lots of hype, I like keeping up on the gadget gossip. Don’t get me wrong, even though I might have my face buried in my computer 8 hours of the day, I stay active the other 8 hours. I enjoy running, playing basketball, football, fastpitch softball, and any other sport you can think of! Throughout my youth I’ve played for my high school and AAU basketball teams, Select Baseball teams, and competed on a state level in Cross Country and Track & Field all four years of my high school career and freshman year of college for WSU.

Events That Made Me Who I Am Today

    When it all Began

    I took my first breath on August 20th, missing the same day of the month as my dad and sister by 45 minutes. My friends will say that destined me for a life chalk full of bad timing and ”running late” texts for hangout sessions, but I’d like to think that it prepared me for an unpredictable life filled with time outs, two-minute drills and audibles. I’ve learned from my mistakes as well as the mistakes of others which help me stay on top of the competition and thrive in the fast lane.

    My Running Career

    Cross Country & Track First Team All-State (Sophomore, Junior and Senior years) and Cross Country & Track All League Academic (Four years). As a team captain (two years) and active leader for both Cross Country & Track I learned how to lead and motivate my team through example, dedication, and hard work to four state appearances in Cross Country and three in Track. I learned how to work in a team environment to help establish drive and excitement into both Varsity and JV that remained long after I graduated, molding the program into the successful, prestigious program it is today. My athletic career has been the roots of nearly all my professional success by planting the seeds that lead to my work-ethic, coachable, and goal-driven personality that I display in all my work. The experience gained through my athletics alongside the examples set for me from outstanding coaches who’ve gone above and beyond, has paved the way for my entrepreneurial and self-driven personality.
