Statement from Wendy Doyle

Kansas City, MO –  Wendy Doyle, President & CEO of Women's Foundation, today issued the following statement after the passage of the REAUTHORIZATION OF THE WARTIME VETERAN'S SURVIVOR GRANT PROGRAM:

"We are very pleased the Missouri legislature passed the reauthorization of the Wartime Veteran’s Survivor Grant Program, which provides grants to the children and spouses of military veterans, allowing them to attend a Missouri university and obtain a college education that may otherwise have been cost-prohibitive.  We actively supported this bipartisan legislation because, based on our Status of Women in Missouri and Project Diane research, we know it’s one solution to make a difference for women and their families. We'd like to thank Sen. David Pearce and Rep. Denny Hoskins for their leadership on this important issue.
'Women’s Foundation has a strong commitment to continue working for policy solutions that will support and improve the lives of Missouri women and their families.   We will continue to work for change in legislative sessions to come."
