Two young women, graduates of Cape Henlopen high school, were recipients of the Women’s Club of Milton (WCOM) Scholarship Fund.  Each senior was awarded $1,500. The recipients this year are Josephine (Josie) Mulveny and Abigail (Abbey) Reese. The candidates were judged on academics, activities and community service.


Josephine Mulveny was active in The Gamer’s Club, coached students in The Odyssey of the Mind Club, mentored younger students, and served as an assistant to a high school science teacher.  Josephine plans to major in psychology at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC and to pursue a career in animal therapy, especially working with children with autism.


Abigail Reese has been very active in her church youth group.  She volunteered to travel to communities in North Carolina and West Virginia, areas affected by natural disasters.  She also performed in the Salisbury orchestra, playing the oboe.  Abbey will major in psychology at Immaculata University in PA.  She plans to further her education by attending law school and to pursue her dream of practicing as an adoption attorney.

Each young lady spoke briefly about their future plans at the WCOM’s Annual Installation Luncheon held at the 1776 Steakhouse in Lewes.  The members of the WCOM wish both these young women success beyond their dreams.
