Soroptimist International of Price has been helping women and girls in our community for 65 years. On an international level, Soroptimist International distributes more than $2.8 million in education awards to about 1,700 women all over the world. Nearly all of the women and families served have overcome enormous obstacles including poverty, teen pregnancy, and drug or alcohol addiction. Live Your Dream Awards recipients may use the cash award to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education, such as books, childcare, tuition and transportation.

Since the program’s beginning in 1972, it has disbursed about $30 million in education grants to tens of thousands of women to help them achieve their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families. Congratulations to Stevenson and our other women. We look forward to continuing to provide help to our local community.
