The Las Vegas chapter of the American Association of University Women awarded $1,000 scholarships to two nontraditional Highlands University students.
Gabrielle Chavez, 38, will complete her M.A. in public affairs in May 2015 and holds a 4.0 GPA. Dora Molina, 26, will earn her bachelor’s degree in social work in May 2015 and is on the dean’s list.
Both women are single parents who have worked to juggle school, family and work responsibilities.
