Vincent Morrow, one of the four Women for Wine Sense 2010 scholarship winners for the Napa/Sonoma Chapter, was honored at an awards ceremony on Friday, Oct. 8, 2010 at Sonoma State University. Vincent Morrow WWS Scholarship Winner

With over 200 people in attendance, the ceremony directors invited scholarship winners to stand up and describe what the scholarship meant.  Vincent was one of several students to volunteer to speak and he described how much the $500 WWS Scholarship meant to him , and how useful it was to help pay towards books, tuition, and fees.  He said he was very grateful to Women for Wine Sense.

WWS members donated money during 2009 to help students studying wine.  A total of $2000 was awarded, with $500 going to four students; one each from UC-Davis, Napa Valley College, Santa Rosa JC, and Sonoma State University wine programs.  All four students will be invited to the next WWS meeting on Nov. 4th at Flora Springs Winery in Napa Valley.  Come and meet them!
