Three Las Crucens are among 38 New Mexico residents named Daniels Scholars.
They are Jennifer Hu of Las Cruces High School, Stefanie Renee Romo of Oñate High School and Dominique Rashelle Ybarra of Mayfield High School.
As Daniels Scholars, they will receive funding to attend the college or university of their choice, according to Linda Childears, president and CEO of the Daniels Fund.
In a news release, she said cable pioneer Bill Daniels established the scholarship program to assist promising students who demonstrate strength of character, leadership and a record of accomplishment in giving back to the community.
The Daniels Scholarship is not “full ride,” but is supplemental to all other financial aid resources, including Pell Grants, available to the student. After other financial resources have been applied, the Daniels Scholarship covers all required tuition, fees, room and board, books, supplies and a variety of other miscellaneous expenses.
