Sandra Broadus, alternative transportation manager in UK Transportation Services, received a fall 2017 Women's Forum Employee Educational Assistance Award, which helped her with the cost of books, a computer program and general school supplies last semester.

"It’s a great relief knowing that this program is out there to help women like me who are just getting back into school after a few years off," Broadus said. "It’s just the boost I needed to keep me motivated. I am so grateful!”
