The Thad and Mary Bingham Education Assistance Award For Adult Students

Up to $2,500 for a graduate from West Forsyth High School from the class of 2021 or earlier. The applicant must have demonstrated financial need and a commitment to pursue a credential for advancement in a chosen career.

Thad and Mary Bingham were long-time Clemmons residents who loved their community, family, and Clemmons United Methodist Church. They generously gave back in a variety of meaningful ways, including the establishment of the Thad and Mary Bingham Fund with the Shallow Ford 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 graduate in obtaining the education needed for a career in which they are passionate to pursue.
