This prestigious award goes to a working woman who is head of household, raising her children or supporting her parents, and going to school (working towards a degree or a vocational skill). The money is hers to use as she needs to improve the standard of living or herself and her family.

Dawn Taylor is a single mother with a 3 year old son who has autism. Dawn attends Scottsdale Community College full-time and will graduate in May of this year. She plans to attend ASU to complete her college degree. This amazing young woman manages to keep a positive attitude and also keeps a 3.7 grade point average, which allowed her to be accepted into Phi Theta Kappa, the national honors society for community colleges.

Through everything Dawn has kept her goal of a business degree well in sight. The award Dawn received is at the Club level and she has been selected to go on to the Region level to be in contention for a larger monetary award.

Dawn will attend the Spring Conference with the local Soroptimist Club in Riverside, California in early June of this year. Congratulations, Dawn, from the local community and from Soroptimist International of Saguaro Foothills.
