Special to The R-C

Women Inspiring Service and Education (WISE) recently awarded their annual scholarships during the May meeting and luncheon to Laurie Lonero and Eileen McGowan.

WISE holds raffles and other events throughout the year to raise money for the scholarship, which is open to any woman who is or will be attending Western Nevada College. It is especially geared for women who are re-entering the workforce after a hiatus or who are looking to update their job skills. WISE is open to all women, and it’s not just for business networking. The diverse group of women comes together for the purpose of sharing ideas, continued learning, business sense, and inspiration. The organization is dedicated to serving the community by offering educational opportunities for women, holding fundraising events for local charities, and offer venues for continuing education.
