The Julie’s Helpers Memorial Scholarship Committee recently announced the recipients of the fourth annual scholarships, given to Navajo women who desire to serve their community and need help funding a challenging academic course of study.
The recipient of this year’s $2,500 Julie’s Helpers Memorial Scholarship is Markie Bee, who is a senior at New Mexico Tech in Socorro.
Bee is a single mom of a 3-year-old son, Orion Vicenti. “Being a single mom…it is a big relief getting any financial help,” she said.
Bee is from Fruitland, a community between Shiprock and Farmington. She is working on receiving her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering with plans to graduate in May. She hopes to serve the Navajo tribe by working with oil and gas industries to ensure more efficient processes and minimalize environmental damage to Indian Country. Her future plans are to achieve a master’s degree and return to Farmington to pursue a career in the petroleum industry.
According to a press release, Bee has a passion for chemistry and has volunteered through the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) to encourage other Native American youth to pursue college degrees. She will be the first in her family to graduate from college.
