Hononegah Students Honored in Scholarship Parade

On May 15th I was excited to take part in a scholarship car parade with the Elev815 group. We were able to celebrate the accomplishments of 10 Hononegah High School graduates by presenting a $500.00 scholarship to each student. Throughout the year, Elev815 held fundraisers and events to raise funds for these scholarships. Since I belong to this group, when this opportunity came up you can imagine my excitement for celebrating the students who I work with and have been missing out on due to the pandemic! It was a Friday, the weather was gorgeous and we had 10 very excited students whom we honored! 

The ten recipents of the scholarships were:

Trevor Diemel, Molly Fraser, Faith Gomez, Isabelle Insko and Jacob Link

Hope Markley, Rylie Martinetti, Allie McClarty, Morgan Seymour and Dominick Welte

Some of the colleges these students will be attending are Rock Valley College, Rockford University, Hope College, Southern Illinois, Loyola and Purdue. Some of the chosen majors are criminal justice, business and marketing and the medical field (a field where we need many more). These students truly felt the support and were so appreciative for the celebration and scholarships they earned. The car parade was about 12 vehicles with a future graduate holding a sign congratulating the honorees!

I love that in a time of pandemic we can still do nice things to recognize others and make them feel special! This time has provided us much time to reflect and see what really matters- relationships!

Calendar of Events

Meeting/Event Information

The RNPW program year is September through June of each year. Our meetings are typically the 3rd Monday of each month. However, in September we kickoff the program year with an evening reception that is a bit more relaxed so that members can renew contacts, meet new friends, and learn what the upcoming year will have for informational and inspirational speakers.

2019 - 2020 Theme: The Power of a Tribe

Each year our Program Committee works diligently to invite exceptionally dynamic women from the region to speak on their achievements—both the successes and challenges in reaching their goals. Read the "More Info" on each month's topics and register before the cutoff date to void a late fee.  

Non-Members/Guests are welcome to attend at any time up to 2 meetings before membership is required -- member referral is not a requirement to attend or join.
