Leadership Award Nominations Due June 1

Cheyenne - Nominations for the Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation Leadership Awards are due June 1, and Director Susan Thomas encourages people in communities throughout Wyoming to send in the names of those leaders who inspire Wyoming's youth.

The winner of the annual Leadership awards receives $2,500 and is honored at the Wyoming State Fair. Nomination forms are available online at www.Thomas-Foundation.com.

The Craig and Susan Foundation focuses on Wyoming's at-risk youth population and those who champion young people.

"The leadership awards is for those people who work to get kids back in school, free of drugs and alcohol, or just take time to see the value of each and every young life," said Susan Thomas.

"We all know that person in our towns and communities – the one who goes above and beyond to inspire young people. To be a positive force in a young life – those are the people I hope apply for a leadership award. The Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation wants to honor that important work for Wyoming's youth.

“Counselors, mentors and educators deserve recognition for the work they do with our children, especially those who are at-risk. I want them to know that we value their time, efforts and dedication,” Susan Thomas said.

The Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation focuses on Wyoming's at-risk youth population and those who champion young people. This award is the second of two key elements to the Foundation. The other is scholarships for at-risk students. The Foundation has awarded more than two dozen college and trade school scholarships to students who do not meet Hathaway guidelines. Names of the scholarship winners can be found at www.thomas-foundation.com.

The foundation is named in part for the late United States Senator Craig Thomas who championed the cause of Wyoming's youth.
