Meet our Scholars: Gwendolyn

Gwendolyn, VA - Sociology

“I have enjoyed helping people learn about community services available to them. I hope to be able to serve in a professional position sometime in the future, where I might have even more of an ability to help victims of domestic violence, substance abusers and people with disabilities,” says Gwen.

After graduation, Gwen hopes to continue to make a difference in people’s lives the same way JRF has made a difference in hers. She would like to thank everyone at JRF for believing in her and giving her the confidence she needed to succeed.

“The Jeannette Rankin Women’s Scholarship Foundation has given me the opportunity to start over and rebuild my life. From receiving my Associate’s degree to receiving my bachelor’s degree this Spring of 2017, this experience inspired me in so many ways!”
