WINGS scholarships help the providers, too: Four more non-traditional students set to graduate after aid from Women Executives (access required)

By Bea Quirk Like many scholarship programs, WINGS – Women Initiating and Nurturing Growth through Scholarships — betters the life of its recipients by helping them make it through college. But WINGS also enriches the lives of those who provide the scholarships. “Our WINGS scholars teach us a lot about the human spirit and what determination can do,” said Joan Lorden, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs at UNC–Charlotte and a WINGS volunteer.  “It’s an inspiration to work with them. Developing enduring relationships with them is one of the nicest parts of the program.” That relationship between scholars – all non-traditional female students aged 25 and above — and donors, who include some of the city’s most powerful women — will be celebrated Thursday at a noontime ceremony. The event (not open to the public) will also honor the accomplishments of this year’s four graduates.
