EWI of Milwaukee Awards Scholarships to Local Students

June 4, 2012

Executive Women International (EWI) of Milwaukee awarded scholarships to three local high school seniors and three local adult students at a first-ever joint celebration on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, at the Crowne Plaza Milwaukee West.

EWI of Milwaukee hosts two annual scholarship competitions:
-The EWI Scholarship Program (EWISP) is open to high school seniors in public, private and parochial schools in the five-county Southeastern Wisconsin region.
-The Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST) program is open to adults facing economic, social or physical challenges, who are looking to improve their situations through education.

A crowd made up of more than 80 scholarship finalists, teachers, parents and EWI® members gathered for the ASIST & EWISP Scholarship Awards Dinner hosted by Andy Tarnoff, co-founder/owner of OnMilwaukee.com. Megan Harney, owner of The Scholar’s Choice, LLC – and first-place EWISP recipient in 2003 – gave the evening’s invocation.
