In Their Own Words

The funding provided by The Sedona Women through the Helen Wolfe Scholarship is so greatly appreciated by our recipients.  These are women in our local community, striving to better themselves – and often the lives of their families as well.  They are re-entering students whose education has been interrupted for some reason.  They are attending, or planning to attend, academic or vocational programs at a variety of accredited institutions.  Past and current recipients have had career goals such as nursing, trauma counseling, teaching, viticulture, culinary arts, advanced canine training, personal training, cosmetic laser technician, cosmetology and more.  Their own words convey how much this assistance means to them:

“Not only has the scholarship money helped me financially, as I continue to work part-time as a massage therapist and raise my children. The support of The Sedona Women continues to mean the most to me. Strong women in the community who believe in my education, my drive, and my determination has given me the fuel to continue my education.”

“Beyond the tangible benefits, your scholarship has been a source of inspiration and motivation. Knowing that there are individuals like you who believe in the potential of students like me has been a driving force.”

“I continually feel the encouragement and support of TSW every time I think about how much I don’t have to worry. The financial support has been incredible, and I will forever be grateful for the generosity.”

“This scholarship was a great assistance with tuition costs, easing the financial burden, and allowing me to pursue my dream of becoming a Registered Nurse and giving back to the community.”

“As an adult returning to school, I appreciate how The Sedona Women help other women in the community.”

“Thank you, ladies, for all you do for the community and for helping me pay for school.”
