Seven young women earn scholarships

Seven young women recently received scholarships from the Roseville chapter of P.E.O., an international philanthropic educational organization that celebrates the advancement of women by providing grants and loans.

The local scholarship recipients include Taylar Kelly, Julie Cantrell, Ashlee Petrilla, Sabina Nussipov, Emily Warren, Claire Halterbeck and Kayla Dean. The women, with the exception of Dean, attended a luncheon in their honor on July 12 at Sun City Roseville

P.E.O. was founded in 1869 and has several hundred chapters throughout North America. Chapter XF is comprised of women from Sun City Roseville, Sun City Lincoln, Granite Bay and the surrounding area and works to help Placer County women achieve their educational goals.
