The Thad and Mary Bingham Education Assistance Awards

Specific to West Forsyth High School Seniors graduating in 2021 or an earlier graduate.

3 Awards Available:
2 for graduating WFHS Seniors
1 for an adult student

The Thad and Mary Bingham Education Assistance Awards for Graduating Seniors: Thad and Mary Bingham were long-time Clemmons residents who loved their community, family, and church (CUMC).  They generously gave back in a variety of meaningful ways, including the establishment of the Thad and Mary Bingham Fund with the Clemmons Community Foundation, which has supported many community initiatives and programs through grants since it was established.  This year, at the recommendation of their daughter, Donna B. Merriman, the Thad & Mary Bingham Fund has made possible three Community Scholarships of up to $2,500 to assist a West Forsyth High School senior graduating in 2021 or an earlier graduate in obtaining the education needed for a career in which they are passionate to pursue. Two of the scholarships will be awarded to this year’s HS grads and one scholarship for a former WFHS grad who is returning to school in the fall.
