The AWN Professional Development programs provide opportunities for growth in members’ careers and professionalism through educational activities and information distribution. The Professional Development Committee will provide one or more seminars or programs a year.
The AWN Student Mentoring Program is designed to formalize the process of education and to impart information designed to develop and clarify the professional career plans of participants. The program provides individual high school juniors with information needed to make rational career choices. We provide students with opportunities to have hands-on experience within their chosen career field, and to develop networking skills necessary for success in pursuing any career. AWN sponsors the program in cooperation with local public and private school, and the Rotary Club of Amarillo.
Career & Lifetime Achievement Awards
The Career Achievement Award Program, sponsored each year by AWN, honors women who have achieved a major career advancement or recognition in their profession within the preceding calendar year. The program was initiated in 1981 to honor women and encourage them to seek higher career goals. It is a way to recognize firms / organizations which support and promote women.
Each year AWN awards scholarships to deserving students from the top 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle. A “student” is not limited to a recent high school graduate. A student may also be any woman who is entering college for the first time or perhaps returning to finish a degree or obtain an advanced degree. Scholarships are awarded annually for use the following school year (fall and spring semesters). The number and amount of scholarships are based on available funds.
