Thanks to VWC member, Sue Tarjen, a special, stand-alone scholarship for a young woman going into a STEM field (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) has been created by the Valley Women’s Club for this year. Sue is executrix of the estate of her dear friend, Deborah Ann Albright. In her friend’s honor Sue donated funds from the estate to the Valley Women’s Club to establish this special scholarship. The 2014 STEM Scholarship will be presented to a young woman graduating from San Lorenzo Valley High School this year.
We cannot divulge the recipient at this time; it is a secret until the Awards Ceremony at the High School later this month. Meet the wonderful young woman receiving the Scholarship in next month’s e-newsletter.
We are grateful for the many generous donations given to the VWC’s Scholarship Fund over the years and are honored by the opportunity to support local graduates.
We support STEM education and hope to fund special STEM Scholarships in the future.
