“A STAR IS BORN” Awards Luncheon

Soroptimist believes the most effective way to empower women and girls is by providing them with access to education. Educated women and girls are far more likely to realize their potential. At our annual “A STAR IS BORN” Awards Luncheon, we bestow the following monetary awards and scholarships:

Live Your Dream – To women for education & training
Betty Jay Award – To high schoolgirls for community service & leadership
Dallas Scholars – To teen mothers to attend college
Maxine Broyles – To college students studying to work with the disable
Ruby Award – To a woman in the community for her exemplary community service

Club members, award recipients, friends, family and the community is welcome!
