Ole Miss Women’s Council Celebrates 15 Years



The Ole Miss Women’s Council for Philanthropy, celebrating its 15th anniversary, first came together to create scholarships that would provide more than financial assistance alone. “Thanks to the incredible investments from alumni, friends, and council members, our OMWC scholarships and programming are absolutely transforming students’ lives – and we intend for our work impact many, many more individuals,” said OMWC chair Karen Moore. The scholarships, which have become some of the largest and most prestigious on campus at approximately $32,000 each, are awarded to scholarly young women and men with a desire to give back to society. But perhaps the most valuable aspects of the scholarship packages are opportunities or mentorship, guidance and lifelong friendship between council members and recipients. OMWC’s past and future will be spotlighted at an anniversary celebration Sept. 25. “We will highlight our scholars, alumni scholars and supporters. It is sure to be an entertaining and
inspiring event,” said Moore.
