SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Granite Bay's Christa Clark, MD, FACS is excited to award the annual S.P.R.O.W.T. (Supporting & Promoting Real Opportunities for Women to Thrive) Scholarship to Fremont resident and Ohlone College student, Wendie Beddingfield.
"I am honored to help Wendie in the pursuit of her academic goals," says Dr. Clark. "We are all thoroughly impressed with her determination, commitment to her educational path, and service to her community."
The S.P.R.O.W.T. scholarship was created to support California women following a non-traditional educational course in their pursuit of higher education. As the award recipient, Wendie received a $5,000 scholarship award to be used toward her educational expenses.
Wendie Beddingfield, a political science major and mother of four, plans to transfer to UC Berkeley next fall in her pursuit of becoming a family law attorney. She currently interns for a non-profit family law clinic that provides her with valuable experience for her future chosen career.
In addition to her career goals, Beddingfield makes room in her busy life to help others. She volunteers at her church to care for preschool children, supports her local community through Stop Hunger Now initiatives, and has traveled to India to help serve the workers and children of several orphanages.
"It's not easy to make the choice to go back to school like Wendie did," says Dr. Clark. "She has a strong calling and is following her dreams. I'm proud to support her, and I look forward to seeing the amazing things she will go on to do."
Dr. Clark is grateful for the opportunity to give back to her community and looks forward to hosting the S.P.R.O.W.T. Scholarship program for years to come.
