Congratulations to our Scholarship

Winners for 2019-2020!

Our winners express their gratitude to the

Georgetown Working League following our

annual awards luncheon  . . . .

"Georgetown would not be the same with the Working League.  Thank you so much for everything you have done to support me at home and at school."

"It's hard for me to feel proud of myself at times, but today you have made that happen.  Thank you for everything you all do!"

"I am so thankful for receiving the WOODEX scholarship.  It means the world to me to have your amazing support throughout my life.  (unable to attend luncheon) I am thinking of you and have Georgetown in my mind while sailing on the Atlantic with the Sea Education Association."

"The Working League has been so supportive of my college journey and the (WOODEX) Scholarship will be immensely helpful in continuing my education."
