Going back to school after a lengthy hiatus is an admirable feat. Four local women have been recognized for just that by the Casas Adobes Tucson branch of the American Association of University Women. Read more below:
The Casas Adobes Tucson Branch of The American Association of University Women’s Joyce Strothmann Scholarship Fund awarded four $1,500 Scholarships to four re-entry women attending Pima Community College. The recipients are: Allegra Leonard, Michelle Bracamonte, Yoni Pozner, and Jennifer Sinclair.
The Joyce Strothmann Scholarship Fund was established by AAUW members to provide a local scholarship for women returning to Pima after a break of several years from any previous education.
