Join us as we honor Peggy Shivers and celebrate our graduating Karen Possehl Women’s Endowment scholars at the 2019 Unstoppable Women’s Luncheon on Tuesday, May 21.
We are excited to honor our 2019 Unstoppable Woman, Peggy Shivers, a cultural leader, vocalist, lover of art, and much more.
Her community involvement extends across the region from performing classical music with groups like the Colorado Springs Chorale to expanding African American collections at the Pikes Peak Library District.
Join us as we honor her colorful life of accomplishments as a woman of distinction.
Karen Possehl made a pledge that has, with the help of community donors and mentors, forever changed the lives of many UCCS scholars.
By attending and donating at this year’s Unstoppable Women’s Luncheon celebration and fundraiser, you can help ensure that even more “unstoppable” students attain their educational goals and strengthen our community.
Join us in celebrating the great accomplishments of the KPWE scholars and honor our 2019 Unstoppable Woman. Thank you for your support.
The KPWE Scholarship program provides financial assistance and mentor support for nontraditional UCCS students who are starting or returning to college after having overcome significant personal adversity.
In addition to providing tuition assistance, KPWE matches scholars with community mentors who offer encouragement and professional contacts.
The program provides career-focused workshops giving students the chance to learn more outside the classroom. Thanks to community support, the program supports 26 students a year.
