Ten students have been awarded the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation scholarship. Each student selected demonstrated a balance of academic excellence, extracurricular participation and community service throughout their high school career.
The winners have each selected an educator of distinction — an education professional that had a positive impact on the student’s time in the Los Alamos Public Schools.
The LAPS Foundation is a non-profit organization leverages time, talent and funds to promote innovative learning in our public schools.
The Foundation continues to grow its scholarship funds through donations made by community members and alumni of the Los Alamos High School.
Victoria Wang chose Catherine Puranananda, her 12th grade AP Literature and Composition teacher at Los Alamos High School, as her educator of distinction.
Wang said “Ms. P’s never-ending patience and encouragement helped me narrow the list of colleges I wanted to apply to. She gave me confidence in myself and made sure I knew that she was always there for me. With her eternal wisdom and her willingness to listen, she has enriched me as a student and a human being.”
