August 16, 2017 BPW Meeting Program
Please join members and guests for Business & Professional Women of Nevada County’s 20th Annual Scholarship Awards celebration on Wednesday, August 16. We will be presenting $1500 Dolores Dee Eldridge Scholarships to two outstanding recipients who will read their essays on A Woman’s Issue That Concerns Me Most and speak about their goals for the future. We are also excited to launch the Helga Rohl Encouragement Award, a new program named in honor of the late Helga Rohl, a past BPW president, naturalized American citizen and staunch supporter of women in business. Two women will receive $500 each in recognition of their efforts to improve themselves and their career prospects. In all cases, this year’s awardees have endured hardships, overcome personal and educational challenges and manifested a strong vision for their futures.
In addition to the awards program, we’ll hear from past years’ winners who will bring us up to date on their education, professional accomplishments and how the scholarship has made a difference in their lives.
This program is always one of our most heartfelt, Makes-Us-Proud-To-Be-BPW-members events of the year. It was founded 20 years ago on the idea that there are many scholarships available for young women graduating from high school but very little, if any, financial assistance for more mature women who want to return to school to restart or improve their professional lives. Come prepared to hear some awesome stories of courage and persistence, and to think, “There but for the grace of God go I.”
Please join your friends and colleagues for this inspiring meeting. It is a reminder that, without all of our members, there would be no scholarship. Come celebrate your generosity and support for re-entry women. Click on the “Dinner RSVP & PrePay” button to reserve your spot now by Sunday, Aug. 13.
