What a heritage this unique program has established over the past 60 years!
I was a participant at the local and state levels in 2005. The experience was a launching point for me. My appreciation for the DYW program has deepened through the years as I continue to realize its role in preparing me for every aspect of life as a young professional.
Supporting DYW as an alumna is an obvious response to me, and hopefully to other alumnae. I am inspired to give back to the community that has supported us all in fulfilling our dreams.
During the state program in January 2020 Taylor County was recognized for their scholarship totals, the following are Kentucky's top 5 scholarship programs in respective order.
Lincoln Co. $21,100
Marion Co. $15,600
Rowan Co. $14,470
Taylor Co. $12,450
Washington Co. $12,050
With your help we would like to award this amount to the Class of 2021, if each of our alumni contributed a minimum of $25 each, we could reach this goal! Participants put these scholarships to great use each year, paying for books, room and board, and tuition at colleges and universities primarily in our state. We need your help, so I am asking you to join me in supporting this experience of a lifetime for the young women of Taylor County.
Please complete the registration form and contribute online to the
Distinguished Young Women Alumni and thank you for your support!
