The Highland Lakes Service League offers scholarships to adult women returning to school to complete their education and or certification in pursuit of their career goals. Scholarship applications are accepted in the spring and awarded at our June meeting.
Funds for our scholarships were raised from the 2019 Chuckwagon Chow Down and Silent Auction and the 2021 Lades Only Golf Tournament.
2021 Scholarship Recipients
The Highland Lakes Service League (HLSL) awarded $8,100 in scholarships to five adult women working to grow in their professions. They are Autumn Foerster-Clakley, Nicole Floyd, Deanna-Marie Gonzales, Sara Te and Rachel Young. Recipients reside in either Burnet or Llano County and plan to remain in the area continuing in their fields of education or health care. They work fulltime jobs while attending on-line classes and plan to continue classes this summer. HLSL strives to support our community by awarding scholarships to women meeting the workforce needs of the area.
Scholarship recipient Rachel Young said, “The reason why I selected my Bachelors of Science in Nursing is because I love to take care of others and I want to further my education in order to serve my community the best way I can.”
