Greenville, OH, March 20, 2018 - The Greenville Business & Professional Women’s Club (BPW) March 8th meeting was held at the Brethren Retirement Center. The meeting was hosted by the Scholarship Committee with Sherrie Foster, Chair, and committee members Dorothy Poeppelman, Brenda Miller, and Sue Huston.

Members heard from thirteen scholarship finalists representing seven Darke County High schools. Each of the finalists gave a three minute presentation of their accomplishments and highlights through high school and shared their future goals. This was followed by an extemporaneous question. Following the presentations, BPW members voted by ballot to select the four scholarship winners.
