Deadline for scholarship application for Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation
May 1 all-day

SHERIDAN — Students from Wyoming may apply for fall semester scholarships from the Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation now until May 1.

The Foundation is dedicated to helping students who have struggled in school and who want to continue their postsecondary education.

“I believe strongly in Wyoming’s young people who want a second chance in life,” Foundation Director Susan Thomas said. “We provide a solid way for them to move forward, to grow, to meet their goals and aspirations.”

Students may download applications online at thomasfoundation.com.

The scholarships are for $1,300 per semester, include intense mentoring and are offered one semester at a time. According to Thomas, who personally mentors each student, it is important to encourage, to listen and to provide assistance and guidance to each student as he or she makes his or her way through higher-learning programs.

The Craig and Susan Thomas Foundation focuses on students who are at risk. Scholarships are a key element of the Foundation. Other programs include grants given to groups that support foundation goals and the Leadership Award given to an adult in Wyoming who has truly gone above and beyond the call of duty to be an advocate for those who need help the most.

The show is a collaboration between the artists, the Wyoming Chapter of The Nature Conservancy and the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Draper Natural History Museum.

Berman and Sutton spent three years traversing Wyoming, logging many miles in an old pickup truck and on foot. Their travels took them to public and private lands, including several properties with conservation easements held by The Nature Conservancy and time in a residence at the Ucross Foundation to capture Wyoming’s vast and beautiful landscape.

The Ucross Foundation is the first venue that will present this traveling exhibit, which will tour to 14 libraries in the state as well as the Wyoming State Museum.

The traveling exhibition, which features 41 photographs, is a smaller version of a major exhibition that will open at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody in June.

There will be a gallery reception for the show from 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 1 at the Ucross Foundation Art Gallery. It will feature an artist talk by Sutton, and Rick Pallister with The Nature Conservancy will speak about grasslands conservation.

The exhibit will be on display through June 15.

A public symposium on grasslands will take place at the gallery on May 30.
