Penny Ammerman Thompson is also a lifelong Centre County Resident who grew up in the Confers Development neighborhood in Milesburg. She is a graduate of Bald Eagle Area High School, where she and GT were classmates. They began dating in 10th grade, and to this day, GT brags how he was able to catch the eye of his 7th Grade Class President when she agreed to attend that first school dance with him their Sophomore year.

Penny has an outstanding record of dedication to her community, including serving on the board of the Bald Eagle Area School District, coaching Howard AYSO Soccer, leadership in their Church, Scouting Parent and PTA President, among many roles.

Licensed as a hairdresser, she performed a number of part-time jobs while their boys were in school, ranging from a school bus driver to church secretary. Her favorite job, however, was being a full-time Mom to the three Thompson boys. Penny and GT have three adult sons. The family includes: son Parker, daughter-in-law Katie (Shaw), and grandsons Noam and Gabriel; son Logan and daughter-in-law Carley (Moore), and son Kale.

GT and Penny reside in Howard Township.
