“We have a strong, supportive membership that believes in giving back to grow our own communicators,” Moore-Black said. “The entire membership has many opportunities to get involved in WPC individually and group projects.”

Funds for the scholarship come from donations and WPC events like the annual mixer featuring a silent auction.

Thurs., Sept. 7 is the date for the 2023 annual mixer and silent auction at KMUW, 121 N. Mead in Old Town.
