$1,000 Betty Gissendanner Scholarship Deadline April 15th

The Democratic Women’s Club of Charlotte County is accepting scholarship applications until Monday, April 15th.  As local parents work to meet the Federal tax filing deadline, a Scholarship bonanza to offset college costs could make Tax Day a little brighter.

Named in honor of the memory of Betty Gissendanner, a long term mentor and champion of Charlotte County students, the Scholarship helps local registered Democrats offset rising college expenses.
