STRONG – Cynthia A. Thomas is proud to announce the engagement of her daughter, Monica J. Thomas of Strong, to Kenneth L. Pangelinan of Farmington.

Miss Thomas is a 2000 graduate of Mt. Abram High School in Salem. She graduated from Colby College in Waterville with a bachelor’s degree in physics and computer science, and from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. For the past three years, she has worked as an electrical engineer at Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. in Manchester, N.H., where she will continue to follow several patents she has filed.

Mr. Pangelinan is a San Diego native, born in Oakland, Calif. He graduated from Lemoore High School in Lemoore, Calif. in 1991. He received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from American InterContinental University and is a certified enrolled agent for the IRS. He is the owner of Tax Resolution Specialists Inc.

The couple met while playing music together through Freedom Rains Ministries. They share a love for Christian music, ministry, travel, outdoor activities, movies and spending time with family and friends. The couple’s future plan is to make a home in Farmington, as Miss Thomas continues studies toward a doctoral degree and Mr. Pangelinan continues to operate TRS locally.

A fall wedding is planned.
