The $1,000 for this scholarship is comprised of monies earned over the past year by South Park Women's Club and the Lion's Club. The two organizations joined a few years ago in order to give a larger scholarship amount award.
Jessica will be attending the University of Pittsburgh, where she'll take courses on Rehabilitation Science on the Pre-Physician Assistant track. She was awarded her scholarship check by Mary Ann Abt and Diane Smith from SPWC. They along with Carol Atkinson are on Women's Club scholarships committee. Atkinson, who has been on this committee for many years, was unable to be at presentation this year.
The Women's Club and Lion's Club congratulate Jessica on her accomplishments throughout her 4 years at South Park High school. The best to her, as she embarks on her new life, as a college student at the University of Pittsburgh. Congratulations, Jessica!
