Four lucky ladies were awarded the Business and Professional Women of Englewood and Venice (BPWEV) Christine Davis Memorial Adult Learner Scholarships in the amount of $1,000.00 each this year. They are Allison Hinshaw, Christine Pomerleau, Oksana Zimin,and Stacey Chaisson. Two are attending State College of Florida, two Florida International University. Their field of study varies from nursing, to early childhood education to school administration. Recipients have to either reside in Sarasota or Charlotte County. The BPWEV members worked hard raising the money for these scholarships through several fundraisers, the annual Wine tasting/Auction and a Hats off to Women Workshop being the most popular ones. BPWEV meet every third Tuesday of each month at the Left Coast Seafood Restaurant in Venice.

The public is invited to all meetings. The mission of BPWEV is: “To achieve equity for all women through Advocacy, Education and Information."

The Scholarship Committee (Natalie Bloom, Katie Malloy - Chair, Carol Kouba, Esther Bird, Karin Drury, Members) are excited to introduce the four Christine Davis Memorial Scholarship recipients at the June 18, 2019 BPWEV meeting.

This is the first year that BPWEV is awarding 4 Adult Learner Scholarships. The applicants have to either reside in Sarasota or Charlotte County and have to be enrolled or accepted into a college or vocational school program.

Please join us in congratulating the 4 winners! Listen to their presentation and what it means to them to receive a $1,000.00 scholarship each. All BPWEV members have helped raise the funds for our scholarship program. The Wine Tasting and Auction last October as well as the Work Shop in December enabled us to pay for the 4th scholarship.

Come and join us and help us to celebrate this accomplishment and meet this year's winners!
