Women LEAD know journeys shape future leaders

The Women LEAD (Learn, Excel, Achieve, Dream) scholarship program awarded 10 outstanding Dallas ISD seniors with a total of $40,000 in college scholarships.

Founded in 2013 by the Junior League of Dallas in collaboration with Mary Kay Inc., the Women LEAD scholarship program assists female high school students in pursuing their dreams of higher education and creates opportunities for future women leaders.

Finalists for the scholarships had to prepare a short speech where they shared their challenges and how their journey shaped them.

The generosity of the presenting sponsor Mary Kay, Inc. and the addition of the supporting sponsor Dr Pepper Snapple Group made the $40,000 in scholarships possible.
