Woman’s Club awards annual scholarship
Melinda Breen of Jaffrey was awarded the annual Adult Continuing Education scholarship from the Jaffrey Woman’s Club.
The $1,000 check was presented to Breen for her spring semester at Mount Wachusett Community College, Gardner, Mass. She is completing her first year in the Registered Nurse program, which also required two-three years of prerequisites before being accepted for enrollment.
The Jaffrey Woman’s Club ACE Scholarship is given to a Jaffrey woman to further her education after a hiatus from school. The applicant may be changing her degree, furthering her education, or pursuing her first degree since high school. Applicants must be enrolled in a program of study to qualify, and need to submit proof such as a transcript or letter from the school.
The object of the Jaffrey Woman’s Club is to promote civic, cultural, and charitable projects in support of the community, and the encouragement of personal enrichment. Membership in the Jaffrey Woman’s Club is open to all area women.
