Joan Karff’s Women on the Way Up (JKWOWU) held its annual Women on the Way Up brunch at the home of Christine and Mark Laskin. The organization, founded by the late Joan Karff in 2001, provides college scholarships to promising Lamar High School graduates from underserved backgrounds. Scholarship recipients participate in a year-long mentorship program and receive a $1,000 scholarship and a laptop to take to college. This year’s brunch included board members, former scholarship winners, and this year’s college-bound winners (pictured).
