Wednesday was the day. 28 beautiful baskets donated by the generous members of the Business Women’s Network of Howard County.
This is the third year for this annual event to raise funds for the Scholarship Foundation. The Foundation awards scholarships each year to women who live in Howard County or attend school in Howard County. The beneficiaries of the fund are women who are pursuing a career and need assistance with tuition. We have an application process, and then an event to make the awards. Monique Washington Jones, a recipient who used her award to attend and complete Leadership Howard County, spoke of her experience to the crowd.
I have belonged to many organizations in my 37-year career, but this one is different. I have numerous lifelong friendships made through my involvement with BWN. This is a group of individuals that actually care about each other.
We meet monthly at Food Plenty in Clarksville. Check out our website, and list of events to register. www.bwn-hoco.org
