Congratulations to Our Scholarship Winner(s)!

And the winner is... The Cornelia A. Bregman Scholarship for Women Returning to Education was awarded to Holly Flint. Holly is a 28-year old single mother and student at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. She will finish her Pharm-D degree in May of 2015. Holly also recently gave birth to a son in May.

The Scholarship Committee was quite impressed with a second candidate this year and received additional support for her. Paw Soemoo, a 37-year old married mother of two and expecting a third, is a Burmese refugee who came to the US from a refugee camp in Thailand. Paw is attending Hudson Valley Community College, pursuing a degree in early childhood education.  Paw will receive an "Educational Support Grant."
