Elydia Thomas of Taylor County was an exchange student in Thailand and wasn't able to attend the Agribusiness/Governor's Scholars Program awards luncheon recently at the Kentucky History Center in Frankfort, where she was honored as a 2008 scholarship recipient and an honorary state commissioner of agriculture. Making the presentations was Aris Cedeno, left, executive director of the Governor's Scholars Program. Accepting the certificate and college tuition check on behalf of their daughter and granddaughter, respectively, were Shelia Thomas, middle, and Nina Cheatham. The scholarship checks varied in amount, based on the need and qualification of each student. Thomas is an ag tourism major at the University of Kentucky.
