ABWA Presents Check for DSCC Scholarships
Representatives from the Southern Accent chapter of the American Business Woman’s Association (ABWA) presented Dyersburg State Community College’s President Karen Bowyer with a donation of $4,300 on Wednesday, June 10.
The funds were raised during ABWA’s 5th Annual Girls’ Night Out fundraiser event held at the DSCC E.H. Lannom, Jr. Gymnasium on April 30. This event features local vendors and is geared towards women for a fun evening of shopping.
Proceeds from the event were awarded to DSCC students as scholarships for the 2015-2016 semesters. The mission of the American Business Women’s Association is to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition.
