The Live Your Dream Award is Soroptimist International of Three Rivers' signature educational award. It is given each year to a woman in the community who has decided to pursue higher education in an effort to make her dreams come true. This $3,000 award is meant to help the recipient offset the costs of obtaining her education, and it can be applied to childcare, books, tuition, transportation, or other needs as she sees fit.
Recipients of our club-level award are eligible to receive Live Your Dream Awards at the Regional and International levels through the larger Soroptimist International organization.
To check to see if you or someone you know is eligible for this award, please visit our Live Your Dream Awards page.
SI3R congratulates 2017 Live Your Dream Award recipient:
Stacey Lee Waldvogel
Stacey is pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Applied Management at Columbia Basin College. She is the first in her family to complete high school and has worked her way out of homelessness to provide for her mother and young daughter. Through tears, Stacey spoke at our membership meeting with her family there to support her. She was extremely grateful and humbled by the award. She thanks SI3R for helping her live her dream of being the first in her family to earn a college degree. We support you Stacey, and we look forward to your graduation in June 2018.
Soroptimist International of Three Rivers is committed to empowering women and girls by supporting their educational pursuits. In 2015, we instituted an annual scholarship fund to give to students attending Washington State University Tri-Cities, and Columbia Basin College.
Women attending these institutions can now apply for an SI3R scholarship each year through their financial aid office that will help pay for their tuition. This year, we will award more than $18,000 in scholarships to deserving women in the community pursuing higher education.
