Stoddard Scholarship recipients announced

By Special to the Monitor

Steve Stoddard, a member of the original trustees of the Valles Caldera who attended many meetings to decide the fate of the Caldera, was given a per diem stipend. 

Rather than spend that money on his family, he placed it in an account. 

By the time all was settled with the Valles Caldera, there was a significant amount of money set aside. Stoddard and his wife Barbara realized that what they both valued was the work that teachers and nurses do for the community and state.

With that thought in mind, they decided to fund a yearly $1,000 scholarship for a student in each area.

This year, the winner of the education scholarship is Emily Lucero. She will attend New Mexico State University and plans to major in secondary math. 

Lucero’s grade point average and ACT scores, as well as her letters of recommendation from several teachers, made her a candidate. 

The essay she wrote to the Stoddard Scholarship selection committee explaining why she chose education as her career was what tipped the scales in her favor.
