Central Valley W.O.M.E.N’S Network will celebrate its fifth anniversary at “Christmas in July” from 10am-3pm on Saturday, July 19, at the Visalia Lamp Liter Inn. CVWN is a group of home-based businesswomen who host two events per year, Christmas in July and the Holiday Marketplace Boutique, to raise money for their scholarship fund and Relay For Life in Tulare.
This year’s CVWN scholarship winner is Brittany Withnell from Visalia, who graduated from El Diamante High School in June and will be entering Cal Poly as a freshman majoring in animal science with a secondary major in biology.
Brittany has been very active in FFA, receiving numerous awards. She held the treasurer position for the 2013-14 school year, participated in the FFA Annual Can Food Drive all four years at El Diamante, volunteered on the Junior Fair Board and helped organize and run various activities at the Tulare County Fair. Her goal is to enter the veterinary field.
