    We will continue to meet in person as long as the Governor's guidelines allow. The current recommendation is that masks are encouraged when meeting indoors. As a result, masks are encouraged but not required at our daytime and evening meetings.

    This year our scholarship committee updated the CWF Scholarship to go to a female student over the age of 25  pursuing a degree or certificate at Craven Community College.We are very grateful to Tanya Roberts for pulling all the pieces together and identifying our scholar, DeAnne Holliday.

    DeAnne Holliday will be entering the Associates Degree in Nursing (R.N.) program this fall at Craven Community College, in order to attain her lifelong dream of becoming a Registered Nurse.  While she had attended an R.N. program in the mid-1980s, illness forced her to discontinue her studies. Now she has just finally gotten the opportunity to return to school again! After graduating from Craven, she plans to attain a Bachelors’ degree in Nursing from UNC-Wilmington. Her long-term goal is to become a Nurse Practitioner.

    One of her passions is providing free or low-cost mobile clinics to serve the rural communities for the uninsured or under-insured.  DeAnne lived in Nevada for four years and witnessed how the Nevada Department of Health sponsored mobile vans to send their teams of healthcare professionals around the State to serve the residents in the small and isolated desert communities. She would very much like to be involved in this type of project in North Carolina so that she can make a positive impact on her...our community.

    DeAnne was awarded $2000 through the college, a one year membership with CWF, and the board has voted to host her at any of the meetings she chooses to attend throughout the year. Congratulations!

    NOTE: Alexandria Kirian, the CWF 2016 Scholarship winner sent a note to keep us updated on her progress in college:

    Dear Coastal Women’s Forum,

    Hello! How have you all been? I hope you are all staying safe with the recent storm and flooding issues. I wanted to write this email to give you all an update on what I have been up to.

    As of now, I have been attending college for about eight weeks. Craven Community College has a beautiful campus and an exceptional staff that makes me look forward to class. My classes with Craven are Introduction to Computers, Introduction to Chemistry, and Anatomy and Physiology 1. This semester I am also taking Introduction to Theatre online with East Carolina University. My coursework has been large lately but I am learning so much that I will use frequently as a nurse. For example, Anatomy has taught me about medical terminology, tissues, organs, the skeleton and much more which is information I will hold with me throughout my nursing career.

    I have stayed pretty busy between school, work, and the student ambassador program. Over the summer, I was accepted into the Craven Community College ambassador program. As a student ambassador, I volunteer for and represent the college. We participate in many of the student life and community events such as the welcome back fair, the bridge run, and the local Christmas parades. Being a student ambassador has made my transition from high school to college much easier.

    Again, I wanted to thank you all for the great impact you have had on my life. The scholarship I received from The Coastal Women’s Forum relieved a huge stress that my family and I had when dealing with how to pay for college. All of you have helped me to focus more on my studies then how I would pay for my education. I am greatly appreciative, thank you all so much.
