Three-Star Power Forward Jarvis Thomas
Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino recently secured a three-star power forward from Orono High School – Jarvis Thomas – who plays on Howard Pulley with fellow Minnesota commit Daniel Oturu.
In 1689, when Philip Ludwell was appointed governor by the Lords Proprietors of North Carolina, Jarvis served as his deputy in Albemarle County but received no salary for this service.
Early Life and Education
Thomas Jordan Jarvis was born into a modest but comfortable household. He worked on his father’s three hundred acre farm while attending nearby common schools for education. Later, Thomas went on to Randolph-Macon College at Boydton in Virginia where he graduated both an undergraduate degree in 1860 and master’s in 1861.
He studied law and became licensed in 1867. In addition, he served as a delegate at the 1865 state constitutional convention and was then elected into state legislative office as part of an electoral district election in 1868.
Jarvis was an outspoken supporter of African-American education and an ardent admirer of Booker T. Washington; although, unlike Washington, he disapproved of his accommodationist approach to education. They remained close until Washington died, after which Jarvis turned against gradualism as his philosophy of choice.
Jarvis has practiced admiralty and international law in New York City since 1985. Additionally, he has taught at Fordham University, Saint Thomas University, Tulane University and Yeshiva University.
He served as Chairman of the North Carolina Democratic Party in 1892 and as a Delegate to the Democratic National Convention two years later. A lifelong devotee to education, he played an essential part in founding East Carolina University as well as creating Pasquotank County schools.
In 2015, he became a US in Schools mentor, working one-on-one with academically capable young people who faced barriers to higher education. Additionally, he participated in volunteering with Building Learning Power Club which provided support for children living in care.
Achievement and Honors
Jarvis had an ordinary childhood and spent much of his youth working on his father’s farm. Although he attended local schools for nineteen years, at nineteen he decided to enroll at Randolph-Macon College in Boydton Virginia instead and paid his tuition by teaching in his hometown during summer break; graduating with an undergraduate degree in 1860 and receiving his master of arts degree two years later.
After graduating, Jarvis went on to a distinguished career as both educator and politician in North Carolina. He served as 44th governor and later helped found East Carolina Teachers Training School (now known as East Carolina University) under his direction. Later on he would serve as United States senator as well as having several places named after him around Greenville – including one residential hall on ECU’s campus bearing his name – being named in his honour. Jarvis died in 1915 at Cherry Hill Cemetery and is interred here today.
Thomas Jordan Jarvis had few funds available to him when he worked on his father’s farm and occasionally attended local common schools. At nineteen, he attended Randolph-Macon College at Boydton, Virginia and paid his tuition by teaching during summer sessions – graduating with an M.A. degree.
He began practicing law in Greenville, North Carolina and achieved notable successes. A member of the Democratic party and advocate for silver standard policies, he also supported national Democratic convention and sought election to an open U.S. Senatorial seat left vacant by Zebulon B. Vance.
Jarvis did not win his bid for governor, yet his leadership helped unite and support for the silver standard platform of state Democratic party was invaluable. Furthermore, he advocated tax reductions as well as graduated income taxes.
