Catharine Lindsay of Vandalia, a Kaskaskia College nursing student, has received Soroptimist International’s “Live Your Dream” award.

This award is given annually to over 1,200 “women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects,” according to the organizations website.

Catharine received the award to help further her education while acting as a single mother to her son, Izaiah.

Catharine is originally from the Bloomington, Illinois area, and moved to Vandalia two years ago, in part to continue her education at Kaskaskia College.
