Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Chapter CN, P.E.O. Sisterhood met at the First Baptist Church with Edna Haynes and Kim Roller as hostess and co-hostess.

Following the business meeting, Carol Kay, president, introduced the program that included the Star Scholarship and the Educational Loan Fund presented by Annalee Huntress and Mary Young.

Huntress described the Star Scholarship as being established to provide scholarships for exceptional high school senior women to attend an accredited educational institution in the next academic year. The senior must be involved in extracurricular activities in school and in the community with a grade point average between 3.0 and 4.0 and be a citizen of the United States or Canada.

Young stated that the Educational Loan Fund was established to lend money to worthy women students to assist them in securing a higher education. The recipient must be within two years, but not less than four months, of completing her course of study. She must be a citizen of the United States or Canada with the maximum loan being $10,000 for two years. Since the fund was founded, 42,680 women have received $130 million to continue their education.
