WOW's 2009-2012 Educational Scholarship Winners

Thank you SO much for supporting my dreams and for granting me a scholarship for the 2012 school year. I became a young mother at the age of 17, and although it's been challenging at times, I'm actually earning my four year degree in three and a half years this fall with a BFA from UW-Milwaukee!

Thanks again!

This scholarship means not only a lot to me but, also my daughter. My daughter Brooklyn is why I want to go to school, and do more with my life. This scholarship is important because college is very expensive so every bit helps. I want to thank WOW very much for giving me this scholarship it will be put to good use. It is very encouraging that moms have place to go for help. It is hard to be a young mom but WOW makes it possible for single women to have a resource to come to not only for help but also for hope.

Thanks again!

Mary G. from Bakersfield, CA.
$750.00 Scholarship Recipient

"WOW accurately describes how I am feeling. This aid will go so far in helping me finish school. Money is tight for everyone and I wish I could really express to the organization and all its donors how much this does mean to my whole family. This award means that I can buy my physics books for next year and not have to burden my mom. It also means that I will be able to buy my daughter the uniforms she needs for school, and I will put a small portion of this award toward apply for transfer to universities. For so long I have been holding on to the dream of being able to get my Bachelors degree, but I realized that having my daughter as young as I did would make it harder. This award makes it possible for me to keep trying. I hope someday I am able to give back to others the same sense of hope that the WOW organization has given me. Thank you immensely." -Mary

Kandice C from Milwaukee, WI.
Winner of $750.00 Scholarship.

"First and foremost I would like to thank my mother for instilling in me the beliefs, values, and hard work needed to fulfill my dreams. Secondly, I want to extend a warm thank you to everyone at WOW who believes in my will and determination to succeed. With the help of this scholarship I can decrease my current loan funds needed for the following semester. I can also cut back on extended hours at work to spend more time with my son.

"You have also made me believe that it is possible to achieve my goals, and with a helping hand they are even more obtainable. Thank you for believing in and providing support for single mothers like me. Thank you for encouraging us to be more than we could have ever imagined despite our obstacles. I will remember you during this journey of my life and use it as determination to reach my highest potential. I eagerly wait for the moment that I can do for others as you have done for me.

"No words can truly express my deepest gratitude,

Kandice C."
