Before passing away from a brain tumor in December 2009, Julie Meadows and her family got help from friends, the community and fellow church members, organized as “Julie’s Helpers.”
Launched in May 2011, the Julie’s Helpers Memorial Scholarship Fund seeks to provide, annually, the kind of help that Meadows would have been proud of. Wife, mother of two young sons, Los Alamos National Laboratory staffer, active member of Alpha Zeta Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi sorority, and member of White Rock Presbyterian Church, Meadows had been tireless in volunteering.
Shortly before being stricken with the tumor, she had been moved to encourage and help young Navajo women, which in turn, is now the focus of the scholarship established in her memory.
The recipient of this year’s $2,500 Julie’s Helpers Memorial Scholarship is Samantha Lee, a junior at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. She is majoring in pre-nursing. Lee wrote to the scholarship committee and said that she aspires to become a public health nurse “to educate and provide direct health care service for disease prevention in my Navajo community.”
She hopes to “be seen as a role model to other Native American girls and women to complete and receive college education.”
