A North County Soroptimist Association awarded four students $ 15,500 in scholarships.
Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland named recipients at an awards picnic at Alamosa Park in Oceanside last month.
In 2022 Soroptimist Awards Live Your Dream are given each year to eligible women who have faced obstacles such as violence, poverty and teenage pregnancy and are attending college or business school to provide a better life for themselves and their families.
The open-air event brought together young and former winners and their families.
Two recipients, Jasmine Davis and Rebecca Villalobos, attend local colleges. Two other awards were won by Diana Diaz, originally from San Marcos but now part of a Modesto nursing program, and Amy DeMar Sifuedes, based in rural New Mexico.
Villalobos and Davis received scholarship checks and award certificates, flower bouquets, gift cards, and large picnic baskets. The children of the winners were included and donated by choosing from a board game or games donated by members of the club.
The picnic was also attended by Vista City Council member Joe Green.
Each Soroptimist club selects one of the winners to be eligible to apply for an additional regional award and possibly a larger national award.
