Members of the Charitable Contributions Committee attended the Washburn Women’s Alliance 2013 Scholarship Luncheon yesterday in Topeka and were photographed with Randall Scott, Executive Director of the Washburn Endowment Association (far left) and Cleora “Suzie” Tousey (holding certificate), a recipient of one of the scholarships. Others in the photo are Lavera Bell (far left, second) Mary Carr, and Wanda Treinen (far right).
The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation Charitable Contributions donated $5,000 last year that helped fund five recipients. The scholarship program provides financial resources for non-traditional female students and the Prairie Band have been donating to the program since 2007. Tousey is majoring in criminal justice and works for the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kan. She plans to graduate in May and hopes to teach at a junior college or police academy after graduation.
