Vicki Piña Scholarship Fund
Vicki Piña grew up in Nogales, Arizona, in a large, loving Lebanese family, and learned the value of hard work, perseverance, and strong family values. She attended the University of Arizona, married and had a daughter (Jennifer) and eventually became the owner of a successful printing and copying company. After selling her business Vicki worked as volunteer coordinator for Homeward Bound, a social service agency that assisted homeless women with families, mostly victims of domestic violence, to become financially stable and to secure permanent homes. Vicki had great appreciation for both education and community service, and great compassion for women whose life circumstances pose barriers to success. She devoted countless hours to community service through Soroptimist International of Phoenix, part of a worldwide volunteer organization. After serving as president of that organization Vicki went on to serve as a board member, officer and then governor of Soroptimist International of the Americas Golden West Region. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend to all that she encountered.
