Thanks to the Carson City community which supported the American Association of University Women Capital Branch in our annual fundraisers (the holiday pecan sales and the February Feast of Chocolate), this year the Branch has awarded two $1,000 scholarships to exceptionally deserving young females who intend to attend the University of Nevada, Reno in the fall. An additional $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to a Western Nevada College student in the fall.

Katherine Darragh, a Dayton High School graduate, plans to study to achieve a doctorate in behavioral psychology. She desires to specialize in trauma and its effects on communities and then work toward a solution.

Hannah Hope Hodorowicz is the Carson High School recipient. Her goal is to pursue a career in the medical field, though she hasn’t determined what filed that might be. She will be exploring her options at UNR.

We congratulate these talented and ambitious young women and wish them well in their college careers and beyond.
