GFWC Contemporary Women of North County (CWONC) awarded its annual scholarship to three local graduating high school seniors. This year’s scholarship recipients were Stephanie Badillo, Gladys Gonzales-Matias, and Sarah Schwab, who will all be attending MiraCosta College and working towards careers in medical/healthcare fields. They were introduced to CWONC members at the club’s July meeting.

CWONC is a local nonprofit organization of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, serving the community by volunteering support to women and children, the military and their families, and local humane societies. In addition to community service efforts, the club also offers a place where members can socialize with a diverse group of women who share common interests. The CWONC scholarship is based on grade point average, financial need, and community service. For more information visit
