Lordsburg High School is pleased to announce that three LHS seniors have been awarded the Hamby Foundation Scholarship in the amount of $4,000 per semester for four years.
Applications for this scholarship were accepted until April 1, 2021. The selection was narrowed and on April 10th each one was individually interviewed in Silver City by the board of the Hamby Foundation. All followed strict guidelines of mask wearing and social distancing.
The Hamby Scholarship fund is a private charitable foundation from Silver City that is dedicated to helping students achieve their dreams of attending college. The candidates were selected for demonstration of character, leadership potential and a commitment to serving their community. These qualities and values are important to the founders of the scholarship program that was created over 10 years ago.
All three students have been accepted at NMSU. Joie Newman will major in Nursing, Tina Martinez will major in Education and Vanessa Montoya will major in Criminal Justice.
Congratulations to all three for an outstanding job! LHS is proud of your accomplishments.
