On June 16, 2015 the Business Women of Englewood and Venice (BPWEV) held their monthly meeting at the Plantation Golf and Country Club.

Three $1,000.00 Adult Learner Scholarships were awarded that night. The lucky recipients are: Jolyn Miller who is attending Keiser University to become a Physical Therapist Assistant; Deva Ballentine enrolled at the Southern Technical College studying to obtain her Associates Degree in Medical Assistance; and Ashley Koch who has received this scholarship for a second time, is attending State College of Florida working on her degree in nursing.

Each student presented a short introductory speech about their goals, future plans and how a BPWEV scholarship will help them.
