Three Westmoreland County women looking to further their education will have a helping hand from the Murrysville Woman’s Club, whose members awarded them scholarships at a June 6 luncheon.

Taylor Franco of Murrysville, Michele Marvich of Greensburg and Danielle Steadman of Mt. Pleasant were the recipients of $6,600 in scholarships for the 2019-20 school year. The scholarships were presented during the club’s luncheon at the Westmoreland Country Club.

Franco is a 2019 graduate of Clarion University with a degree in speech-language pathology and audiology, and a minor in social work. Franco has been accepted into the university’s master’s degree program. She works at the Carlson Library’s circulation desk at the school.

Marvich is a graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and works at Westmoreland County Community College. She has been accepted into the master’s degree program at Chatham University, with the goal of becoming a technical writer specializing in business and organizational writing.

Steadman will begin her final semester this fall at Seton Hill University, where she is pursuing a degree as an adult training facility program specialist. She works at Clelian Heights caring for disabled adults, and has volunteered at the Westmoreland County Probation Office since 2012.

Since 1983, the Murrysville Woman’s Club has awarded more than $124,000 in scholarships to 90 women.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
