From SR Education Group press release:

SR Education Group and their scholarship committee has just announced two new $2,500 scholarship winners! There were many impressive applications, but the committee was able to identify two outstanding applicants to award the scholarships. Hannah Harris of the University of Oklahoma and Tara Vayne of St. Petersburg College were picked due to their exceptional abilities to overcome financial hardships and set clear goals for their futures.

When Tara Vayne was told she won the $2,500 scholarship, she responded, “I just found out three weeks ago that I was going to be a part of a major layoff with my company. As a single parent that is terrifying. I was considering dropping out again because of these circumstances.” Tara was previously a successful salesperson but consistently felt held back by her lack of a college degree. She went on to explained, “Then I heard from the SR Education Group team that I won the scholarship. I registered for summer semester that day. Thank you SR Education Group!” This scholarship will help Tara accomplish her dream of earning a degree and will allow her to thrive in the competitive world of business.

“Tara Vayne caught our attention with her dedication and ability to overcome obstacles in pursuit of her goals, and she will be receiving $2,500 toward her education”, wrote Taitum Ridgway of SR Education Group.

For the next round of scholarships, SR Education Group is offering two $2,500 College Scholarships and one $5,000 Graduate Scholarship for Teachers.
