Thirteen Northern New Mexicans recently received $1,000 Returning Student/Regional College scholarships from the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation.

The awards helped students returning to a formal education for certification or a two-year degree at an accredited regional college. Many are pursuing new careers.

Funding for the Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund comes from donations by LANL employees and a matching amount from Los Alamos National Security, LLC.

Awards went to:
• Oakley Blasdel, Rowe, who is pursuing a degree in nursing at Santa Fe Community College. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas in 1986, graduated from New England Culinary Institute in 1991 and has been a personal chef, personal assistant and caregiver for the last eight years.

• Evan Fishbein, Los Alamos, who plans to study Electro-Mechanical Engineering at UNM-Los Alamos. He will intern as a Greenhouse Technical Assistant at the New Mexico Consortium greenhouse facility. He is a part-time teacher at Taos High School and has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology from Tufts University in Boston.
