This is the 4th year the Buffalo Branch of the American Association of University Women has done me the great honor of giving a $5,000 scholarship in my name.  Western New York students are invited to submit applications during the summer.  The scholarship winner was announced last night at the AAUW annual dinner meeting.  Elizabeth ‘Lizzy’ Johnson emerged from all applicants as the winner because of her excellent academic record and her dedication to serving others.  If you purchased a book during the AAUW’s big Used Book Sale in May then you helped contribute to the scholarship for Lizzy and several other scholarships and educational programs in Western New York.

The American Association of University Women Buffalo Branch gave several scholarships during its annual meeting on Monday night at the Christ United Methodist Church in Amherst. The AAUW raises money for scholarships and educational programs during its big annual Used Book Sale in May. It is hard work for this dedicated group of women, many of them former educators, who believe in extending academic opportunities to girls and women.
