With this belief in mind, we're proud to award this year's Soroptomist Scholarships to Amanda Acosta and Abigail Sikora of Dayton High School, Davannah Anderson and Sahara Elderkin of Silver Stage High School and Sophie Beckwith of Virginia City High School.
Also, we were able to award $500 scholarship to Colleen Grimm so she would be able to return to college.
All of the recipients have proven, with their determination, dedication and overall commitment to achieve their best, that they are perfect candidates to receive this award.
Additionally we had the honor of presenting Jeanette Hoffert with the Ruby Award. This is presented to a woman in our community who helps other women but isn't a member of Soroptimist.
Congratulations to these remarkable young women and we wish them good luck in their future.
