President's Message

BWA Sisters,

March brings us to a time of renewal and rebirth in most of the areas of the country. Springs blooms start to appear, and the winter cold begins to melt.  Here, in gorgeous south Florida, we are blessed with great weather year round, but we still see signs of the trees blooming.  As mother nature signals renewal, why don't we, collectively, as a membership, renew our commitment to BWA? Reach out to a prospective new member and invite her to our March meeting to hear from our past scholarship recipients. What a wonderful way to showcase what BWA is all about!


Holly Moody

President 2016-2017


Meeting Information 

Where are they now?
Scholarship Recipients update - 2017
Twenty-five hopeful women scholars applied for financial assistance in 2016. From those 25 the Scholarship Committee chose seven outstanding recipients. During our March meeting, they will update BWA members on what they have accomplished this past year and will invite your questions on the scholarship process.
Just to give you some background, our seven came into the scholarship program with an average GPA of 3.85, and three with a perfect 4.0 GPA. Three attend Nova Southeastern University, three attend Florida Atlantic University and one attends Keiser University.  One is studying marine biology; two are psychology majors, two are studying information technology, one is a multi-media journalism major, and one is studying pharmacology.  All are degree-seeking students.  Four of the successful candidates received financial support from BWA last year, and two will graduate this year.
I think you will agree that this outstanding group of women deserve the generous support you have so graciously provided, and that you will enjoy hearing from them directly.
