Thelma Wilson Shepherd was an active, committed volunteer with
the Broadbay Club of the Forsyth Extension and Community
Association until health issues prevented her continuing. She was
cited in 2004 and again in 2005 as "Outstanding Family &
Consumer Science Volunteer".
"Thelma Shepherd has been a vital volunteer for our Family &
Consumer Education programming for over 21 years. She is a very
active member and officer of the Broadbay Extension and
Community Association Club. Her club has been recognized as
Club of the Year two years in a row, largely due to the numerous
community outreach projects spearheaded by Thelma. She is
passionate about making, collecting, and delivering items to others
in need, including those in rest homes, hospitals, Battered
Women’s Shelter, Prodigal Community, and Salem Pregnancy.
"Whether it is working at the Talent Show, fund-raising yard sale,
ECA Achievement Day, or posing for an article in the Winston-
Salem Journal’s Mature Times section, you can always count on
Thelma to be there. She is dedicated, dependable, and committed
to supporting our program.
"We recognize Thelma Shepherd for her thousands of hours of dedicated volunteer work to assist our Family and Consumer Education staff to
help improve the quality of life for families in our county."
