A Celebration for Women April 30

JoAnn Haberer

All Quail Creek residents are invited to attend a program honoring the 2018 recipients of The Women of Quail Creek’s High School and Women in Transition scholarships on Monday night, April 30. An informal gathering to meet with the young women and their families will begin at 6:15 p.m. followed by a program celebrating both current and past scholarship winners.

“Our program relies on support from the entire Quail Creek community,” said Suzan Bryceland, Scholarship Committee Chair, “So we’re inviting everyone to come and see the results of their generosity and caring for young women in the greater Sahuarita area.” Octoberfest, held in the Madera Ballroom, is the biggest fundraiser for the scholarship program and this year proceeds from that event and other TWOQC scholarship events raised $6,000 to be given to four deserving young women—two who will be graduating from Sahuarita and Walden Grove High Schools, and two adult “women in transition” who want to further their education.

In the past three years the Scholarship Committee has awarded eleven scholarships and the April 30 program will offer a media presentation of “Where Are They Now?” showing the progress made by previous winners.

Lady Putters President Janet Wegner will also speak at the presentation. Lady Putters has been a stalwart supporter of the Scholarship Committee’s efforts and is just one example of how community partnerships between QC clubs and organizations work together for a common cause.

Suzan Bryceland commented, “A community is only as strong as the volunteer efforts of its citizens. The women selected for this year’s TWOQC scholarships have all shown not only academic ability, but also an on-going commitment to giving back. It’s rewarding to be able to acknowledge their efforts and service.”
