ZANESVILLE, Ohio-  Five area women received the Elliot Scholarship donated from the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Zanesville.

This fund distributes five, one thousand dollar scholarships to five young women to help them continue in studying to achieve their educational goals.

“Well going to Ohio State University, obviously the tuition is really high so getting any sort of scholarship really helps towards my tuition”, said Ohio State University student, Hannah Mayle.

Not only is the funding an amazing gift for these women, but the donors awarding these students have turned into an inspiration towards them as well.

Muskingum University student, Sydney Joseph, stated, “It means a lot I’ve always wanted to be a nurse and this money just really helps me reach my dreams and have a career where I can help people that really need me”. Joseph added, “It really empowers me to know that there is a whole group of women that are successful in it makes me inspired that I can be successful as well”.

We wish the best for these young women as they continue at their education, and strive to achieve their academic and career goals .
