The Oaks Women’s Club (OWC) awarded a total of $39,000 to six high-achieving high school seniors with a scholarship award as part of the Women’s Club long-standing tradition of supporting local young women bound for college. Each of the 6 recipients received $6,500 to help them begin their college careers.
“The awards are based on superior academic ability, commitment and compassion, leadership activity in the community, and financial need,” said Oaks Women’s Club Scholarship Chair, June Curtiss. The Oaks Women’s Club has awarded $279, 000 in scholarships since the program’s inception in 2001.
The 2016 Scholarship Awards were awarded to each student achiever during a luncheon event in their honor held on April 13 at The Oaks Club in Osprey, Florida.
