Fourth Generation Alumna Carves her own Path
Sara Thomas, B.S., Fashion and Textile Management ’15, has cotton woven into her genes. She is the fourth generation of the Thomas family to graduate from the College of Textiles. Her great-grandfather, Mason P. Thomas, arrived on NC State’s campus in 1919 and every generation of her family since has followed in his footsteps. However, just as the textile industry has shifted focus across the decades, each member of the Thomas family has carved out his or her unique path.
