Two nursing students at Southwestern received $1,000 scholarships recently from a local organization. Grace Ann Porter and Joan Lauren Stewart, both junior nursing majors, received these awards.
Ridglea Lone Star TBW is a local organization affiliated with Texas Business Women, Inc. According to Suzanne Schlabs, scholarship chair for the organization, the mission of Ridglea Loan Star TBW is to provide resources for leadership, networking and advocacy to empower women to succeed personally and professionally.
“TBW promotes equity and economic self-sufficiency for women,” says Schlabs. “One way to accomplish our mission is to give scholarships for higher education.”
Any man or woman interested in becoming a member can contact Susanne Schlabs at firstname.lastname@example.org. Meetings are the first Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at Mimi’s Café at Bryant Irvin and South Loop 820 in Fort Worth. The July meeting will be on the 11th.
Applications for the 2014 awards will be received in February.
