Women's Club of Milton Awards $2,000 Scholarships to Local Women
2019 Scholarship recipients are Erin Cannon, Isabella Leishear, and Stephanie Philcox
Three young women, all graduating seniors from Cape Henlopen High School, were each presented $2,000 scholarships by The Women’s Club of Milton (WCOM) on June 11, at the Club’s annual luncheon. The recipients this year are Erin Cannon, Isabella Leishear, and Stephanie Philcox.
Stephanie Philcox swims, sings, and signs in three languages. She is active in Best Buddies, the National Honor Society, the Leo Club, and is an intern at the elementary school level helping young students with special needs. Her love of music and her ability to play both the guitar and piano is a gift from her grandfather. She plans to make music the cornerstone of her future career by healing others through music with a background in psychology. Stephanie will attend Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania.
Erin Cannon excels in both academics and sports. She is a member of the National Honor Society, volunteers with the Leo Club, participates in Best Buddies, supports community service, and mentors with the Sussex Consortium Program. She will study marketing and 3D design. Erin will attend Marymount University in Virginia.
Isabella Leishear hopes to save our precious resources through environmental efforts. She is dedicated to continuous learning and is a member of the National Honor Society. She performs in a jazz group, theater, volunteers, and has held leadership positions in environmental organizations. With an eye on becoming a citizen of the world, her dream job would be working with National Geographic. Isabella will attend the University of Delaware this fall.
