Thank you for your interest in the James Henry Thomas Scholarship!

Vernell Thomas is the spouse of Mr. Thomas and also has a passion for giving to others. Following the passing of her husband, Ms. Thomas had the desire to continue the legacy of service by giving to others and funded this unique scholarship.
