Review for Jeannette Rankin Women's Scholarship Fund (JRF), Athens, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Six years ago, after 29 years of marriage and 8 children together, I was divorced from my unfaithful and abusive husband. I had to continue to provide for our youngest as well as be a positive force for the older adult children. JRF has given me wings to fly...much more than crucial financial aid: this foundation connected with me as a person and strengthened my will to believe in a future that was open to me through the priceless gift of education & hard work. I have worked part-time as a Nursing Assistant while earning a 4-yr degree to become a RN. Thank goodness for JRF! Now, at age 58, I will be graduating with honors and a 4 year BS degree in Nursing this coming May. JRF's continued support has impacted all of our lives with hope and confidence that education is available to even those who do not have money but who want to become qualified for a career. JRF provided the confidence to hope and the material help to make it happen!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

supportive. They listened to my unexpected and trying events with sympathy and guidance. They helped me feel I could have a positive impact by following my heart's desire for education and a career.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

strengthen the family through educating mothers who then can nurture and role-model the power of working to become qualified for a career to their children.
