During their June 14 meeting WOW members presented a $500 check and a bouquet of flowers to this year’s WOW scholarship recipient, Grace Yang. Grace was one of nine applicants for the scholarship.

To be considered for the scholarship applicants are required to submit an essay about a woman they admire in the business work place, and why they admire her. Three WOW members select a winner based on essay content, grammar, and overall writing skills.

WOW has been offering $500 annual scholarships for the past six years to female students in the 833rd school district (East Ridge, Park and Woodbury High School) that are going on to higher education.
