Women’s Education Scholarship Awards
This year SITM presented scholarships to six undergraduate and four graduate students. Each had interrupted their education when “life” intervened but are now actively pursuing their careers through higher education.
On May 23, SITM awarded scholarships to four graduating seniors who have expressed great desire to further their education and who also have significant financial need. We also awarded Shopping Sprees to five Unsung Heroes who represent the very best in our community.
