$5000 donation to provide scholarships for deserving students

Representatives from the Southern Accent chapter of the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA) presented a check to Dyersburg State Community College (DSCC) President Karen Bowyer May 15 in the amount of $5,000.

The funds were raised during ABWA’s eighth annual Girls’ Night Out fundraiser held at the DSCC E.H. Lannom, Jr. Gymnasium March 29. This event featured local vendors who set up for a fun evening of shopping.

Proceeds from the event will be awarded to DSCC students as scholarships for the 2018-2019 academic year. The mission of the American Business Women’s Association is to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition.
