Last minute purchase wins At the last minute, Laura Thurman, Jackson County 4-H member, set aside a bridesmaid's dress she had planned to model in the 4-H Fashion Revue.and substituted a dress she bought from a clearance rack. The cost? $5. For that price, she figured she couldn't go wrong. Thurman, who earned the top award in the buymanship project in Jackson County credits her shopping savvy to the 4-H buymanship program and her morn, Lisa Thurman. "Before, buying I've learned to look clothes over carefully, and to check fabric and care labels. In 4-H, we're also taught to consider cost-per-wear- ing,'" she said. Thurman modeled her dress in the 4-H Fashion Revue at the Kansas State Fair. A year ago, she also had qualified for the event but between the time she qualified and the fair, she was seri- ously injured in an all-terrain vehicle accident and focused instead on re- building her life after a traumatic head injury. The fact that she will model this year is a testament to her spirit and hard work in rehabilitation, her mother said. is that I've kept a memory. You can look at that picture and you are able to look back and be reminded of that time." Her entry at the state fair was of a pink tulip that grew in the Wilson yard. "It had just finished raining and the dror, s of rain were still on the petals." The photo was taken as a side shot, in the middle of the afternoon. "It was so simple and came into focus so well. The background did well also." She entered three flower photographs at the county fair this year--the tulip, a yellow hibiscus and a lily of the valley. She leamed photography on her own, "Sort of a trial and error process," she said. Her other hobbies include playing the French Horn and piano and acting. She is active in school band, vocal, show choir, forensics and is on the superintendent's all academic honor roll. She hopes to become a high school drama teacher. Wilson has a brother, Rob.
