Once again, I’ve decided to grant two scholarships today instead of just one (I did the same in October). For more reasons this time than those I gave then, to combat all the media doom and gloom and because two women impressed me enough that I wanted to. Also because times are tough and I want to offer as much support as I can. Besides, it’s the holidays!
And once again, I can’t promise the same for next time, but I will continue to at least give one scholarship each quarter.
Now, without further ado, and on my way to sign myself up for Over-givers Anonymous (see my post from yesterday on 2008 giving), the scholarship recipients are:
Hearty congratulations, ladies! I look forward to working with you in class in January. I will send you each a class confirmation shortly.
I wish I could grant a scholarship to everyone. Unfortunately, I’m not in a position to do that. Maybe some day.
Thanks to EVERYONE who applied. I encourage you to apply again for the next WPSS class in March. Anything you can do to beef up the your traditional publication credits between now and the next application round is a good strategy.

And congratulations again, Melissa and Erin!
