Dear Lake County Women's Coalition,

My final class at the College of Lake County wrapped up at the end of July and last week I received my Associate in Arts degree.

As a 2013-14 recipient of the Lake County Women’s Coalition Scholarship, I hope to share this update with its members. Along the way, the daily duties weighing upon me and fellow mature students can make our educational goals seem out of reach. These scholarships mean more than dollars — they offer encouragement that helps us push forward when we want to stop. Please send my thanks to the membership, again, for doing that for me.

I am now two weeks into Southern Illinois University’s Workplace Education and Development program and looking forward to receiving my Bachelor of Science!

Have a wonderful day.

Tracy Castro
