Alexandria The Virginia Association of Women Judges recently awarded its annual $500 scholarship to Dildora Rakhmatullaeva, a senior at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria who wrote an essay about the benefits of women’s full participation in the legislative and judicial branches of government. Rakhmatullaeva was required to interview at least one woman judge and one female member of Virginia’s General Assembly.
The VAWJ presented the scholarship at a May 5 luncheon at the Virginia State Capital. Rakhmatullaeva is interested in international business and plans to attend Marymount University next year.
