The Ethel Tibbits Women of Distinction Awards recognizes outstanding women—and also pays it forward.

Mary Kemmis, publisher of The Richmond Review, announced at Friday’s luncheon that Sandra Bodenhamer is the 2014 recipient of the Ethel Tibbits Scholarship.

The scholarship is offered through the Ethel Tibbits Endowment Fund, established by the Review through the Richmond Community Foundation. The scholarship is designed to assist Richmond women who aim to upgrade their education or job skills in order to better support their families.

Bodenhamer, a young Richmond mother and volunteer on the board of the Richmond Food Security Society, plans to return to school to obtain a master’s degree in public health.

For seven years she has worked as a dietician, program co-ordinator and research co-ordinator for chronic disease programs with a society that supports First Nations people in the Downtown Eastside.
