2011 Woman in Transition Winners

The Woman in Transition committee reviewed 25 applications from women from Beavercreek (14), Cedarville (1), Bellbrook (5), Fairborn (4) and Xenia (1).  They ranged in age from 25 to mid 50's.  They are enrolled in Wright State University, Clark State University, Wilmington College, Kettering College of Medical Arts, and Lincoln College of Technology.

The BWL board allocated us $5000; we awarded $1000 each to the following women, all from Beavercreek and married.
  •  Amber Chambers is a full-time student at Kettering College of Medical Arts. 

  • Anna Conrad is studying rehabilitative services at Wright State and hopes to become an occupational therapist.

  • J. Robin Evans goes to both Sinclair and Wright State, is in social science education.

  • Theresa (Terry) Larson also goes to Wright State and is planning on teaching middle school math. 

  • Ann Thompson is a Wright State University student in middle childhood education - math and science. 
All of the applicants had to submit an official transcript,  a letter explaining the transition in their lives, and the application.  They may use the award for tuition,books, or lab fees.  They have been invited to our first meeting in September.

We have now awarded $48,500 of these grants since we started awarding them in 2000.
