Sanibel Captiva Business Women’s Association recognizes scholarship and continuing education recipients at recent luncheon. The scholarship recipient search began in August and is awarded annually in November. Monies for the scholarship fund were raised at the Annual Fundraiser this September. This annual event helps fulfill the groups mission for scholarship and continuing education efforts. SCBWA awarded all seven applicants with a scholarship. The recipients include Molly Duignan, April Haas, Kylie Lusk, Lilian Pedersen, Rachel Rainbolt, Avery Renshaw and Rebecca Wehmeier. Six of the recipients attended the SCBWA November luncheon and shared how SCBWA is assisting in career and educational advancement opportunities.
