Soroptimist International of Brookings is excited to report that seven scholarships have been awarded to local women.

Kaylee Strain and Savannah Sanders each received $1,500 scholarships. A $500 scholarship was awarded to Makala Fulton and Alexis Pacino. These scholarships are financed by Brookings Soroptimists’ various fundraiser which the community so generously supports.

The annual Holiday Wreath Sale is the main financial support for this program and more information on the sale will be available shortly. The Judy Dobberpuhl Bright Light Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each have been awarded to Alexis Pacino, Gina Podesta and Ashlie Pieren, who may also reapply in the Spring.

It is the thoughtful financial support of this community that enables local women receiving these awards to achieve their goals to further their education, improve their lives and the lives of their families.
