MCABW Awards 12 Senior Scholarships

In April 2023, MCABW Foundation awarded scholarships for twelve female high school seniors attending school in Montgomery County.

Each of the selected high school seniors was awarded a $1,000 scholarship and are recognized for their achievements. The ladies are required to be academically at the top of their class, actively involved in their school and send in letters of recommendation with their application.

The MCABW Foundation, is a 501c 3, non-profit organization awarding 96 college scholarships in the past 13 years to graduating female seniors of Montgomery County High Schools. Most of the young ladies awarded scholarships from MCABW were first generation college students and have a great financial need.

MCABW was founded by Carol Gooch in 2005 and will be celebrating their 18th anniversary this August. Carol was proud to add the Scholarship Foundation 13 years ago.

Each year MCABW awards college scholarships to female seniors graduating from Montgomery County high schools. The young ladies must apply with their academic scores as well as academic accomplishments, and their community and/or volunteer activities. The young ladies also have a few essay questions to answer, and they must submit 2 letters of recommendations. 

“As a former school teacher and school counselor, education is very important to me, and it gives me great pleasure to have MCABW award scholarships to young ladies who want to further their education.” Carol also stated, “I want to thank all the sponsors that helped us award 12 scholarships this year to deserving female graduates of Montgomery County high schools.

“Also as a mental health therapist, I saw many women involved in domestic violence. It became apparent to me that women need to be able to provide for themselves. The MCABW Foundation assists young ladies with an opportunity to further their goals to be financially independent.”
