The partnership awarded a total of $25,000 to four female students from Conrad High School who prepared an essay and a speech about how they could accomplish their dreams beyond college with $5,000.
“We hope these scholarships will allow these women to further their education and become one step closer to pursuing their dreams. Education is one of the League’s main areas of support, and we look forward to seeing the impact it will have on their lives and future,” said Julie Bagley, president of JLD.
