JOIN US AS WE CELEBRATE RE-ENTRY WOMEN FOR THE 22nd YEAR IN A ROW
AT OUR ANNUAL SCHOLARSHIP EVENT!
There was an abundance of fine scholarship applications this year and from that largesse the Ed Fund/Scholarship Board chose three women to receive the Dolores “Dee” Eldridge Scholarship and two to receive the Helga Rohl Encouragement Award. The Dolores “Dee” Eldridge awardees for 2019 are Heather Farris, Katie Ann McCammon, and Danica Vega. Jackie De Nio and Rebecca Younger will each be receiving the Helga Rohl Encouragement Award. Without exception, the applicants displayed excellent academic work, focus on goals, had strong letters of reference and financial need. And they modeled resilience, perseverance and self-determination. It is with pleasure that we announce that BPWNC will be awarding over $5000.00 this year making a grand total of $63,350.00 awarded since 1997. We will also hear from a panel of three previous Dolores “Dee” Eldridge Scholarship winners who will bring us up to date on their accomplishments.
Don’t miss this heartwarming event as our awardees regale us with stories of trials and triumphs on their challenging journeys to achieving their dreams—with help from the BPWNC Scholarship programs. Those of you who have attended over the years know you are in for smiles and tears, laughter and inspiration. You will get to know each winners’ journey story and will hear each woman read her moving essay. As you enjoy this evening, remember it is YOUR contributions that make this possible, YOUR support that lets all these women know “We Believe in You!”
Because you can never have too much celebrating, we will also be marking Women’s Equality Day which falls on August 26 every year. 2019 commemorates the Centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, but also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. Balloons, favors and more will enhance the festive atmosphere. Let us celebrate this privilege that women fought so hard to achieve and stay vigilant in the maintenance of our rights! See you on the 21st!
