Frank J. and Carol J. Thomas Scholarship Endowment

Frank and Carol Thomas grew up in Pocatello, attended ISC, then transferred to the University of Idaho and the University of California at Berkeley, where Frank earned engineering degrees. Frank worked in the defense industry and founded Pacific-Sierra Research, which he owned for 27 years. The Thomases live in Malibu, California, where they raised four sons. Aware of hardships suffered by Native Americans, their endowed scholarship provides opportunities for Shoshone and Bannock students.
