We are truly changing people’s lives!

Through the success of this scholarship program created in Yolanda’s memory, we are constantly reminded that “it’s not what you take with you, but what you leave behind” that determines how well you spent your life. The Yolanda D. Thomas Scholarship Endowment’s passion was to see education made more readily available for less fortunate women.  It has become one of the most successful scholarship programs in our area.  Once God graced us with a miracle of this magnitude, thankfully He also instilled a passion to keep it going!

As of this year, the Yolanda D. Thomas golf tournament and associated events have generated approximately $500,000, 86 tuition and books scholarships and 36 First Generation Scholars Grants have been awarded to deserving young women courtesy of the Yolanda D. Thomas Scholarship Endowment. The Endowment is now one of the largest contributing entities to the Northwest Florida State College Foundation scholarship program. Since 2007, the YDT endowment has been a 501 (c) (3) Public Charity.

And that’s how we’ve arrived at this moment in time.  I’m writing to you today to personally invite you to come out and help us continue to further the legacy of this extraordinary woman who so significantly affected and changed the lives of so many people.  If you’ve ever felt that as a single person, you were small, insignificant or incapable of positively influencing your world, we invite you to consider the incredible effect of the well-spent life of Yolanda Thomas. We would love for you to come out and help us to recognize and replicate the sterling example that Yolanda set.  With your help, we have in the past, we can now and we will in the future continue to make a difference!

The 2017 golf tournament will be held at the Fort Walton Beach Municipal Golf Club on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at noon. Please take time to clear your calendar and consider not only sponsorship of this event, but also your presence and participation.
