Meet our Scholarship Program Participants!

Thirteen Wyoming students have been chosen to participate in the Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation scholarship program for the Fall 2011 Semester. The Foundation is dedicated to helping at risk students get post-secondary training in order to become positive, contributing members of society.

First time scholarship program participants include:

  • Megan Bardin, Cheyenne, attending Laramie County Community College
  • Joseph Brokenleg, Laramie, attending the University of Wyoming
  • Russell Grotz, Sheridan, attending Sheridan College;
  • Tony Johannson, Buffalo, attending Gillette College;

  • Dustin Cates, Big Piney, attending Western Wyoming College,
  • Stephanie Hanway, Rock Springs, attending Western Wyoming College
  • Stephanie Calfior and Sarah Maurer, Laramie, attending Laramie County Community College on the Laramie campus.

    More than just financial aid, the Foundation scholarship program includes mentoring for the students. Participants are chosen from applicants in Wyoming who want to attend a Wyoming college or in-state vocational training programs. The scholarships are $1,250 for full-time students and offered one semester at a time. Mrs. Thomas personally works with each student to help them make the best choices in their learning environments. She believes that a key part of the program is to encourage, listen and provide direction to the students and says, “We tell them that ‘no matter what you do, be the very best at it!’"
