Newly elected Los Alamos Employee’s Scholarship Fund Chair Phil Tubesing led the Advisory Committee’s self-assessment retreat recently at the LANL Foundation offices in Española.
The committee annually evaluates outreach practices, criteria and selections, fundraising and summer job placement at Los Alamos National Laboratory, in addition to welcoming new volunteer members.
Tubesing, who has been a donor since the scholarship campaign began in 1998, said serving on the committee is one of the most rewarding things he does.
 “It was an easy choice to support and participate in the funding and distribution of scholarships in a place I’ve called home for over 20 years. We’ve awarded nearly 1,000 scholarships to amazing students.”
Serving on the 2014–15 Committee are Eve Bauer, Julie Bremser, David Bowman, Michael Cai, Immediate Past Chair Rebecca Chamberlin, David Chavez, Norman Delamater, Randy Erickson, Greg Erpenbeck, Bryan Fearey, LANL Foundation Scholarship Program Officer Tony Fox, Phil Goldstone, Elaine Jacobs, Leon Lopez, Wendy Marcus, Rebecca Martinez, Stephanie McReynolds, Anne Menefee, Evelyn Mullen, Carole Rutten, Andrea Salazar, Tania Sanchez, Toni Taylor, Donald Thorp, Patrick Trujillo, Phil Tubesing and Clare Webber.
LAESF is the largest scholarship pool in Northern New Mexico. In the past 16 years, LAESF awarded $4.5 million to students in Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe and Taos counties. Scholarships are funded by contributions from LANL employees, retirees, contractors, community members and Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS). The scholarship program is managed by the LANL Foundation, with oversight by the Advisory Committee of elected donors.
