PPWA 2022 Scholarship Recipients
The Pelican Pointe Women’s Association is pleased to announce its recipients for the 2022 PPWA Scholarship Program. Each year since 2019 the PPWA has awarded a scholarship to an outstanding young woman from Venice High School who will be pursuing higher education in Florida. This year, due to additional donations from Pelican Pointe Women’s Association members, a total of four scholarships were made possible. The recipients were selected from among a pool of highly qualified applicants. All four young women selected have demonstrated outstanding academic and personal achievement, consistently maintaining the highest academic standards while contributing significantly to their school and community. An Award Luncheon for recipients and their guests was held on May 2nd at Pelican Pointe Golf & Country Club. This year’s recipients are: Ms. Sophia Burns who will attend the University of Central Florida majoring in Biology with plans on becoming an OB/GYN Physician; Ms. Shannon Dowdy who will major in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida with the goal of becoming a pioneering Healthcare Engineer; Ms. Thea Janes who will attend Florida State University majoring in Neuroscience leading to a career as a Physician’s Assistant specializing in Neurology; and Ms. Lauren McMahon who will study Health Sciences at the State College of Florida with a goal to become a Physician or Physician Assistant.”
