Rocky Mountain Region Woman Receives Soroptimist Federation Funds

Hear from Shirlee, one of SIA's 2014 Live Your Dream Award (formerly the Women's Opportunity Awards) recipients. Shirlee gave an inspiring speech during the Live Your Dream Luncheon at Soroptimist's 43rd Biennial Convention. Live Your Dream, Shirlee! 

Living Her Dream Awards, previously Womens Opportunity Awards, are designed to give women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families, the opportunity to achieve their career goals--an opportunity they have not previously had, whether because of economic or social barriers, or personal circumstances. 
These cash awards are for women who are attending, or have been accepted to, a vocational/skills training program, or an undergraduate degree program, and can be used for any expense related to obtaining schooling.
If you, or someone you know qualifies, request an application and return completed forms to Soroptimist of Fort Collins. Email for additional information.
