Whatcom Women in Business has awarded $1,000 scholarships to 10 local women who are pursuing higher education.
Scholarships were awarded in June after an application and panel interview process. Although the number of applications received was lower than it has been in the past, the decision process was more difficult than ever. Awards were based on professional goals, GPA, personal achievements, community service, extracurricular activities, financial need, and an in-person interview.
Scholarship recipients include: Stephanie Williams, Alanna Steele, Gabrielle Holmquist, Jordyn LeBlonde, Kylee Clark and Melinda Shenk of Bellingham, Megan Reardon and Krisula Steiger of Lynden, Dani Plagerman of Everson and Bailey DeBruin of Sumas.
Whatcom Women in Business is a nonprofit organization consisting of business owners, managers and professionals who provide a positive role model for the community through leadership and professional mentoring.
