Fun and fellowship abound at WPC annual mixer

The annual WPC mixer and scholarship fundraiser returned Sept. 1 to the east-side Wichita Marriott. More than 60 attendees raised an estimated $2,700 for the organization’s scholar-ship fund. It was WPC’s first in-person mixer since 2019. Last year’s event was virtual, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“This was a great show of support for our scholarship fund, coming just two months after our return to in-person monthly meetings,” said WPC scholarship co-chair Judy Conkling. “We can always count on our members, local businesses and friends to step up and give generously when the cause is scholarships.”

Each spring, WPC awards at least one scholarship to a Wichita-area communications student. This year’s scholarship recipient was Daegiona Wilson, a student at Southwestern College in Winfield.
