Susan Thomas, wife of former Wyoming Senator, Craig Thomas, addressed the Sheridan County Republican Women at a luncheon today. She spoke about the foundations she created with her husband to help underprivileged students attend college and succeed.
Each semester, the Craig and Susan Thomas foundation provides college scholarships for at-risk students. Thomas explained that she targets learners with limited opportunity.
Many of the students picked for a Craig and Susan Thomas scholarship have very low grade point averages when they graduate high school, but go on to be successful in junior colleges through graduate programs. They are mentored by Mrs. Thomas herself.
