Palms Trading announces Pueblo Scholarships

Palms Trading Company has announced its 2007 Pueblo Scholarship for two deserving high school seniors who will be attending college in the fall.

Last year’s award was appreciated so much by Isidora Gachupin, Palms decided to make it an annual award. Scholarships will be presented to a
Jemez Valley High School student and an Acoma High School student.

Criteria include: a 3.2 or higher GPA, acceptance to a four-year institution, participation in extra-curricular activities for at least 3 years and good character. Applicants must write and submit an essay about their future goals.

According to the Palms newsletter, after hearing about the scholarship last year, Kenneth and Diana Reneau of Lufkin, Texas asked if they could help. Their contribution has helped to increase the size of the scholarship funds. In addition, Mr. & Mrs. Ernan Roman have contributed to the fund.

Anyone else who would like to contribute can make deposits to the New Mexico Pueblo Scholarship Fund at the Wells Fargo Bank in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We salute our good friends at Palms for their public spirit in initiating and funding these scholarships.
