2014 Outstanding Alumni of the Year

Carl Thomas, Lancer Automotive

Carl Thomas graduated from Century College in 2004 with an Automotive Service Technologies and Applied Arts and Science Degree. After graduating, Carl continued to broaden his education with more specialized training. Among his many accomplishments, Carl was the youngest Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Master Technician with an Advanced Drivability Certificate in the history of ASE.

At the age of 27, Carl purchased his father’s automotive repair shop, Lancer Service Auto Care in Saint Paul, MN.

Now in his 30’s, Carl’s business thrives with 10 employees and more than 2,400 satisfied customers. Committed to his industry, he still finds time to serve on the boards of multiple organizations including AASP, MNSSA, Skills USA, Century College and St Paul Technical College Advisory Committees.

Carl told us, "I was very fortunate to have grown up as part of an industry I have a large passion for. Century's instructors and staff helped fueled my passion and prepared me for the upcoming challenges. That education and experience minimized my obstacles and allowed me to excel when facing new and uncomfortable situations. For that, I am truly grateful. "
