Women’s Leadership Circle Awards Scholarship

Glenville, WV – Junior Elementary and Special Education major Jessica Smarr is the first recipient of the Glenville State College Women’s Leadership Circle Scholarship. The Scholarship, totaling $500, was open to all female students at Glenville State College.

Smarr is from Grove City, Ohio, but currently lives in Braxton County with her husband Nate, two sons Drew and Austin, and daughter Bre. “I am grateful to the ladies of the women’s leadership group for recognizing and celebrating qualities of leadership in women,” said Smarr. “As I continue my journey, I aim to lead and inspire by sharing kindness, acting with compassion and love, and encouraging others to succeed. Life is full of challenges. No matter what it takes, we should move forward, turning dreams into goals, and then crushing them!”

“It was difficult to pick a recipient out of so many worthy candidates,” said Committee Chair for the Women’s Leadership Circle Karen Lay. “Jessica demonstrates perseverance in obtaining her educational goals while meeting her family and community commitments.”

The Women’s Leadership Circle was founded on the basis of fellowship, opportunity, and philanthropy and envisions a community of female givers who provide opportunities and support to female students at Glenville State College. In addition to aiding projects on campus, members will help create a culture of female empowerment on the GSC campus and surrounding community, helping women to prepare for and grow in their careers and leadership positions.
