We’re proud to announce that one of our 2020 Live Your Dream award winners has been selected to receive a $3,000 cash award presented by Soroptimist International, Sierra Pacific Region.
The winner, whose identity is being withheld for her safety, is the mother of two who is pursuing a degree in social work and has been able to maintain a 4.0 grade point average while raising her children, going to school full-time and working part-time.
“I want to work with women and mothers and help them to overcome difficulties and to enjoy their precious life,” she wrote in her Live Your Dream application essay.
The Live Your Dream awards are given to women who are enrolled in or have been accepted into a BA or technical training program, are the heads of their households and have demonstrated a financial need.
Local winners’ applications are then submitted to the Sierra Pacific Region where they are evaluated for additional financial support. Regional winner applications are also eligible for further consideration at the national level.
