Thomas Paden comes to The Cadets from Franklin, Tenn. He is currently studying Video and Film Production at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, having attended UTK for two years before transferring to MTSU in the fall of 2019.
Thomas has done video freelance work across the area, most notably working with the City of Murfreesboro, ESPN+, and Wenger Corporation. He is also on staff with Franklin High School Marching Band, where he was a marching member (bass clarinet) from 2013 to 2016.
"Creating content for a drum corps is the opportunity of a lifetime," Thomas said. "I am beyond excited to be combining my two favorite activities - marching band and film - this summer with The Cadets."
