Supporting future nurses, teachers

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Everyone’s career has some type of significance; whether it is a trash collector who ensures neighborhoods and city streets remain sanitary and clean or a police officer who maintains everyone’s safety. From the long list of potential occupations to support through a scholarship, Steve and Barbara Stoddard selected two – teaching and nursing.

The Stoddard scholarship, which has been offered to nursing and teaching students since 2004, awards $1,000 to qualified high school students who attend Los Alamos High School, Pojoaque High School, McCurdy School, Jemez Valley High School, Espaola Valley High School and equivalent home-schooled seniors.

The scholarship is funded through private funds.

The scholarships are also renewable for recipients’ second year of college. To receive a scholarship, students fill out an application, write an essay about why they chose one of these two fields and participate in an interview with a small committee.

This year’s recipients include Danielle Christensen, a Los Alamos High School graduate, Sarah Wyman, a Los Alamos High School graduate, Jacklynn Duran, a student at the University of New Mexico, and Melissa Weber, who graduated from University of New Mexico with a Bachelors of Science in nursing.
