Award Winner

“Live Your Dream: Education & Training Awards for Women.”

This is a very appropriate title, since most of our applicants are striving to live their dream!

Through this program we assist women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills, and employment prospects.

Recipients who are enrolled in or have been accepted to a vocational/skills training program or an undergraduate degree program may use this cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare and transportation.

Our annual awards banquet in March 2015 was said to be the very best evening ever because of the behavior of a four year old child turning from happy and smiling to unstoppable tears.  Everyone in the room was searching for a handkerchief as Mom, Jaree Bush received her check, flowers and certificate from “Live Your Dream” Chair, Barbara Moore.

The child was so happy to see her Mom honored, beaming, clapping and glowing but when her Mother began to speak little Jaree’s smile turned to tears of joy for her Mother.

Jaree Bush was raised by her Grandmother and faced many obstacles while still in High School but she too had a dream and graduated with honors.  Focused, determined and with a positive attitude Jaree is on the way  to achieving and living her dream.

A beautiful role model for her daughter, Jaree learned many life lessons along the way and now, attending Sanford Brown Institute, her goal is to finish the Medical Assistant program and graduate with straight A’s and a 4.0 GPA!

Jaree we wish you much success in all your future endeavors!
