Tom Sullivan

  • I am running for re-election to the Board for a second consecutive term.  I have been involved with Burke Athletic Club since 2009, enrolling my oldest daughter in their inaugural Fall Lacrosse clinic.  I caught the BAC "bug" and became more and more involved in their programs, and progressed from sideline parent, to volunteer, assistant coach, head coach, and am now serving as a commissioner for the growing Girls Lacrosse Program.  I have witnessed first-hand the positive benefits to the participants, parents and community in the programming that BAC puts on in all of their programs and want to continue to support BAC at this level for another term.   I am a 20-year resident of Burke and look forward to many more years in this wonderful community, and appreciate the opportunity BAC members have given me to participate on the BAC Board.
