Student Success Stories: Courtney Gilgore

Courtney Gilgore

On Awards Night at the Peninsula Baptist Church, Courtney Gilgore of Ilwaco High School was awarded a scholarship from the Willapacific Branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). AAUW is an organization of women with at least a two-year college degree or the equivalent. AAUW has two annual fundraisers of a Spring Tea and homemade cranberry-peach pies for the Cranberrian Fair to raise money for scholarships for local girls. Throughout the year there are monthly programs open to the public on issues including education, safety, finance and other subjects important to women and the community at large. Watch the calendar in the Observer for specifics. Anyone interested in joining or obtaining more information can call Charlotte at 665-6074. We wish Courtney and the other Ilwaco graduates a great future.
