Soroptimist International of Kingman gave several awards out to women and those who help women during their meeting Thursday at the Kingman Elks Lodge. Erin Cochran, a City Council candidate, received the Women's Opportunity Scholarship Award, designed to assist mature heads of households with entry or re-entry to the labor market or the upgrading of skills. Catalina Viamonte won the Volunteer Violet Richardson Award, which recognizes young women (ages 14-17) who make the community a better place through volunteer efforts. CASA received a $5,000 donation for the work they do to help women and families.
