In honor of Christi's memory, four separate annual $1,000 scholarships had been established in her name. Funds raised through the Christi Thomas Memorial Fund went to ensure, through these scholarships, that Christi's legacy lives on.

November 2015

In Christi's memory, every year since her death, we have awarded thousands of dollars to students to continue their education. After careful thought and deliberation, I've decided to no longer do this. While most would not know, nor would I want anyone to even imagine, it is deeply painful and downright gut wrenching for me each spring reading all of the applicants' portfolios and knowing I am only doing this because of all Christi endured including her death. I don't mean to disappoint anyone. I am sorry. Please know we will continue to be generous, but in other ways of our choosing. I appreciate your respect.

With gratitude,
Angela (Christi's mom)
