The Zonta Club of Jefferson City recently held its 16th Annual Yellow Rose luncheon at the Capitol Plaza hotel. During the annual celebration of women’s achievement in the Jefferson City area, the group once again awarded three local women with its Second Chance Scholarships. These awards are designed to help women over age 24 with a high school diploma or GED pursue post-secondary education to advance their status in the workplace.
The 2015 scholarship recipients were awarded to Columbia College students Julie Barker, who is studying criminal justice; Rachel Smith, who is working toward a degree in American studies; and Jessica Vanderfeltz, who is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in human services. Barker and Vanderfeltz both attend the Jefferson City campus while Smith takes Evening classes at the main campus in Columbia.
