Susan Thomas Sets Up Foundation To Benefit Children

Cheyenne, WY – The widow of the late Senator Craig Thomas is starting a foundation to help underprivileged children.

Susan Thomas announced the formation of the Craig and Susan Thomas foundation to help at-risk youth and to give leadership grants for mentors. Referring to her late husband's military background, Thomas called this a new mission.

About 300 thousand dollars is already in the account. One of the goals is to help those who do not qualify for the Hathaway scholarship. Thomas says they are trying to offer children who have fallen off the horse, a leg up.
