On January 19, 2022, The State of Tennessee House of Representatives Cooper, Camper and Leatherwood adopted a House Joint Resolution No. 646; to honor and commend Mr. Coleman Thompson for his contributions to the Memphis Community. Thompson serves as manager of substance abuse with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office since October 2019.

In 1991, Thompson founded the Pyramid Recovery Center, a community-based program designed to solve the social and economic issues facing youth and families. In addition, Thompson currently serves on the boards of various organizations and committees: Memphis Health Center, Inc. (Vice-Chair), Disproportionate Minority Task Force, Friends of T.O. Fuller State Park, Kiwanis Club of Memphis, and National Association of Community Health Centers Consumer Committee. He was former president of the board of governors for Harbor House Treatment Center and Family Home Health Agency. He has shown great concern for the residents of the community and his willingness to listen to people’s problems and issues is commendable.


He has a commitment to public safety, increased healthcare programs and economic development within our city which is so needed for our most vulnerable populations. He works hard to sustain the connection between local government and local business as he has been a successful entrepreneur who targets the underserved population and has done so for more than 30 years, which affects the entire region in a positive manner.


Please join us in celebrating
Mr. Coleman Thompson!
