According the Tampa Bay Business Journal, Rays employee Stephon Thomas recently finished the Leadership St Pete program. Hosted by the St Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce,
The program is a six-month experience designed to promote and enhance community leadership, according to a statement from the Chamber. Participants get an in-depth introduction to social, economic, business and political issues in the St. Petersburg area.

Thomas works in the Rays office of Development and Business Affairs. He is the Manager of Business Operations for the team.

Like their community charity work, the development of the Rays Card and membership, and the marketing of their new manager as a local product, the enrollment of a Rays employee in a half-year St Pete Chamber of Commerce program is evidence the organization is trying to deepen its bonds with the local community.
