SCHOLARSHIP YEAR 2013-2014

Charlotte Dobson - University of Winnipeg Chapter Scholarship 2013-2014

 

This scholarship addressed the question of adversity and how one negotiated that adversity to inspire and achieve. Charlotte, who grew up in a small town, received no encouragement from her parents to pursue or extend any type of formal education. At a young age, she became a single mother. Busy with life’s challenges, Charlotte pushed forward toward her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. Through hard work, a young marriage, and two more children, Charlotte is actively working towards her teaching degree. Not only has Charlotte been successful in her pursuits, she has been instrumental in launching a redeveloped part-time and mature student group on campus. This group offers support and friendship to others in similar circumstances. We want to congratulate her as the first recipient of our annual Golden Key Winnipeg Chapter Scholarship.
