The Darien Women in Business Scholarship is presented by the Darien Women in Business Networking Group, a committee of the Darien Chamber of Commerce, to a female 25 years of age or older who resides or works in Darien and is enrolled in a technical school, business college or traditional college for at least one semester. The candidate must be in good academic standing.

Drane has completed more than one-half of the M.S.M.O.B. requirements at Benedictine and has earned a 4.0 grade point average in the program. She plans to graduate in 2011. Drane has already accumulated enough credits at Benedictine to earn a Human Resource Management certificate, which is designed for professionals in the personnel field.
