Zonta Club of Kankakee speaks loud for abused women through Kathleen Savio Scholarship

The Zonta Club of Kankakee recently announced its new award, the Kathleen Savio Schooling You Deserve Scholarship, at its annual luncheon. The scholarship, named for the late Kathleen Savio, will give financial desperate women who are seeking higher education $500 yearly.

Sue Savio Domain, Kathleen’s sister, also spoke at the luncheon. She told the emotional story of Kathleen’s murder by her husband, former Bolingbrook, IL, police officer, Drew Peterson, and how the scholarship was something she always wanted since her sister’s murder.

The scholarship applicants must be residents of Kankakee County, and survivors of intimate partner abuse.
