Four women in our communities will have a little easier time attending school this summer or fall thanks to scholarships from the Zonta Club of Lapeer.
Ronnette Leslie of Lapeer will continue her work towards an Associate in Applied Science at Mott Community College, while Shawn Elswick of Lapeer attends her junior year at Rochester College working towards a B.S. in Psychology.
Both Deborah Young of Lapeer and Janice Nacker of Imlay City are in nursing programs at Baker College and St. Clair County Community College respectively. Both will graduate within the year.
Zonta is a local service organization that supports and advances the status of women, both locally and internationally. The scholarship program is just one of the ways Zonta achieves its mission. For those who would like to learn more about the organization, visit the website at www.zonta.lapeer.org or contact President Penny Lamkey at 793-7659.
