Our scholarship winners, Nora White, left, and Skylar Fowler, were introduced to the membership during our Spring General Membership Meeting at Ris restaurant on June 7.
Nora will continue her work to towards a Master of Public Health at the University of Michigan with $4,000 from LDE-DC. Nora received funding from us last year and was so impressive that we wanted to help her complete her studies.
Skylar completed one year at Lexington College, a culinary program in Chicago and, since the college is closing, she will enter Northern Virginia Community College this autumn to finish her Hospitality Management Associate Degree and Culinary Management Certificate. Impressed by Skylar’s hard work, enthusiasm and resourcefulness, the scholarship committee awarded her $2,000.
Kudos to our scholarship committee, led by chair Sara Engram, whose members include Diane Feffer Neas, Nona Nielsen-Parker, Connie Hay and Michele Jacobs.
