On July 28, members of the American Business Women's Association (ABWA) will celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Association's educational fund - the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund (SBMEF).
At the chapter meeting held on June 19, we were honored to present this year's SBMEF Impact Scholarship, in the amount of $2,000, to Claire Williams who will be attending the University of Southern California (USC) in the fall.
The Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund exists to provide educational grants and scholarships for women pursuing post secondary educational goals as well as ongoing professional development in order to support their career advancement and to help them become the role models, mentors, and future leaders.
The mission of ABWA is to bring together businesswomen of diverse occupations and to provide opportunities for them to help themselves and others grow personally and professional through leadership, education, networking support, and national recognition. The Pathfinder Chapter of Fremont holds meetings on the third Wednesday of each month at the Newark-Fremont Hilton Hotel.
