Chatfield College Student Recognized by Executive Women International

July 31st, 2014 Chatfield College Student Recognized by Executive Women International

Chatfield College student Lisa Huff recently received one of five ASIST Scholarships awarded by Executive Women International (EWI).  Each recipient was presented with a scholarship ranging from $2,000 to $10,000.  EWI’s scholarship programs support local students in achieving their higher education goals.

Huff, a Cincinnati resident who just recently completed her final semester at the College’s Findlay Market campus in Over-the-Rhine, was encouraged to apply for the EWI scholarship by one of the College’s administrators.  “It was a lot of steps to apply with paperwork and essays, but they narrowed it down (from) out of hundreds.  Five of us from different colleges won awards,” states Huff.  Chatfield College is a Catholic, liberal arts college offering the Associate’s Degree at both its Findlay Market and Brown County campuses.

Executive Women International provides the Adult Students in Scholastic Transition (ASIST) scholarships to adults facing economic, social or physical challenges who strive to improve their situations through pursuing educational opportunities.  Huff candidly shares that she is a “success story because I’ve been through the mud; I’ve survived obstacles.  I’ve taken my final two classes to receive my degree from Chatfield this summer and then I start at Mt. St. Joe’s on August 25th.”

During the awards banquet, each recipient spoke to the gathering of attendees.  A second opportunity presented itself following Huff’s speech.  “A woman from the (EWI) organization called me two weeks later.  She’d listened to my speech and wanted to submit my name to another scholarship,” stated the Chatfield student.  

Huff has gained a great deal from her liberal arts education at Chatfield College and is eager to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree at the College of Mt. St. Joseph this fall.  Her area of academic concentration will be social work.  “I’ve been working with the homeless since 2006.  I’m on a mission.  I’m not going to stop until I have my Master’s.  I wasted too much time when I was younger, but now I am on a mission.”
