The Scholarship Committee met and unanimously selected three, very worthy recipients for 2014-2015 awards. Two of the ladies selected, Kathrin Simpson and Angela Baca, are residents of Paso Robles. They are both working on obtaining an RN degree from Cuesta College. The third, Ellen Davis, a resident of Atascadero, is receiving a scholarship for the second time from our branch. A sophomore at UC Davis, Ellen is majoring in Product and Industrial Design. All three were very grateful to be chosen and appreciate the support from Atascadero AAUW! Many thanks to the thoughtful selection committee: Judie Magonacelaya, Marika Williams, Diane O’Neil and Shirley Summers.
