2020 Scholarship Recipients

Janae Shivers – Pensacola State College

“Following graduation with my business degree, I plan to continue attending Pensacola State College for cosmetology school. Since I can remember, it has been my dream to do hair and makeup! With both a business and a cosmetology degree, I aspire to own my own salon someday. This scholarship has benefitted me tremendously; it allowed me to save extra money to put towards attending cosmetology school and following my dream. I am beyond grateful to be honored with this opportunity. Thank you!”

Karah Androski – Pensacola State College

“My dream job has always been to do something that involves working with Orcas. As I have gotten older, I decided my ultimate dream job would entail me being a veterinarian that specializes in marine animals. Nothing would make me happier than to know that my career would be helping and rehabilitating animals in need. This scholarship has made a significant impact on me this semester. I pay for all of my class fees on my own, and while it’s not impossible, it can be very stressful for me. Being granted this scholarship gives me the opportunity to save money and take more classes this spring! Knowing that there are organizations like yours that want to help others succeed, makes me feel so supported and motivated.”

Vanessa Holding – University of West Florida

“I am a full time student working towards my bachelor’s degree in psychology, and intend to graduate in the spring of 2021. During this time I am also working full time and planning to start a family soon, so things stay busy in my house! I am looking to pursue graduate school in the future to achieve a master’s in psychology with a focus on counseling. 
I want to thank the Pensacola Women’s Alliance for this incredible opportunity and am grateful that you’ve chosen me for the scholarship!”

Jessica Lemos – University of West Florida

“I am a single mother to a kind and intelligent 9-year-old, and when I am not in school I am working at Subway and interning at the UWF historic trust. I enjoy painting, and exploring new places with my daughter. I hope to graduate and pursue a career in illustration and animation. Thanks to the Pensacola Women’s Alliance and their generous contribution, continuing my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design was made more accessible and I was even able to take on additional opportunities which would have otherwise been impossible. I am extremely thankful for an internship with the University of West Florida Historic Trust, which I was able to pursue by virtue of relieved financial burden. In addition to paying for my books, this scholarship allowed me to pay for software which has greatly improved the quality of work I produce both as a student and as an intern. I am, and will continue to be, incredibly grateful for the Pensacola Women’s Alliance. The vote of confidence given to me by these empowering women will stay with me long after my diploma is in my hand.”
