Thomas Family Memorial 4-H Endowment
Established by family and friends in memory of Freddie Thomas and his son, Stephen Thomas, this fund honors their mutual love of the outdoors by supporting UF/IFAS Extension St. Johns County 4-H youth members.
Freddie led a 4-H club in the 1970’s and spent many weekends camping, planting trees, and teaching youth about the great outdoors, skills that would serve them for a lifetime and impart the same love of all things outdoors. Stephen also loved 4-H and was a passionate advocate for the outdoors, with a particular love of camping and fishing.
The fund supports St. Johns County 4-H members attending 4-H University, with preference for those presenting in topics related to conservation, nature, and the outdoors. It also supports participation in state and national 4-H competitive events related to forest and marine ecology, beef and vegetable farming.
