The Business and Professional Women of Englewood/Venice (BPWEV) awarded two $1,000.00 Adult Learner Scholarships at their monthly dinner meeting on June 19, 2018 to Rhonda Robinson and Cynthia Kenner-Brower. Both recipients are attending SCF Manatee/Sarasota. (A third winner will be honored at the July meeting)

Rhonda is enrolled in the B.A.S. Technology Management Program, Cynthia is finishing her A.S. degree in Technology and Engineering and has been accepted into the B.A.S. for the 2018 fall semester. Both ladies are single mothers, working and carrying a full study load. Their outstanding GPA helped the Scholarship Committee in the selection of the winners. Cynthia made the President’s List of Students to be recognized for their academic successes, quite an honor! Congratulations Rhonda and Cynthia! BPWEV wishes you continued success.

BPWEV meets every third Tuesday of each month at the Left Coast Seafood Restaurant in Venice. The public is invited to attend all meetings. For more information please go to www.bpwev.org

The mission of BPWEV is: To achieve equity for all women through Advocacy, Education and Information.

The Scholarship Committee, Carol Kouba, Esther Bird and Karin Drury, met on May 30, 2018.

BPWEV received 14 scholarship applications. The lucky recipients this year are: Nathalie Barr (2nd time), Cynthia Kenner-Brower and Rhonda Robinson. You will meet them at the June 19 or July 17 dinner meeting.

Please join the scholarship committee in helping to welcome them. All of the BPWEV members, but especially the Wine Tasting Committee, worked hard to procure the funds that allow us topay for three $1,000.00 scholarships each year.

As demonstrated this year by the amount of applications received, the need for Adult Learner Scholarships is great. It would be wonderful, if in the future, BPWEV could award more scholarships. Reading their essays, as well as the letters of recommendation, sending Letters of Regret to the majority of the applicants, is always
sad.

Who will join me this year in paying for the dinners of the awardees? In the past many
generous BPWEV members have volunteered to pay for the dinners, so that the BPWEV budget is not stretched too far.

Thank you all for making this important project of BPWEV possible!
