Leah Thomas, a 2017 graduate of Forbush High School, was recently selected to receive a North Carolina State 4-H Scholarship.
Thomas has been in 4-H for more than 10 years. She had a very diverse background being active in the youth livestock program, fashion program, citizenship, leadership and community service programs. She has volunteered countless hours and has received many honors and awards at the county, district and state levels while being in 4-H.
Thomas received the North Carolina 4-H Development fund scholarship and will be recognized at the North Carolina State 4-H Congress in July. Selection for the scholarship was based on 4-H involvement, academics and on SAT or ACT scores. She plans to attend Western Carolina University and major in education.
