The Roswell High School classes of 1968 and 1969 have created a new scholarship fund to encourage future graduating RHS students to attend Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell.

The RHS alumni, who held their 50th reunion last year, donated the $6,800 reunion fund to the ENMU-R Foundation.

With those funds, the foundation established the new Roswell High School Alumni Scholarship. The scholarship for $1,150 will be awarded to one RHS graduate each fall semester.

The scholarship will be awarded to “a deserving student to use toward tuition, books, and/or other educational costs,” according to a press release issued by the school.

The scholarship is open to students with financial need enrolled in any ENMU-R program or course of study. It is renewable for the following semester, to be determined by the Financial Aid office, if funds are available.

“We wanted to establish a fund for graduating RHS students attending ENMU-Roswell within one year, as many of our class benefited from attending ENMU-R,” said committee member Elaine Davies Mayfield. “We hope to encourage future class reunions and alumni to contribute to and continue funding this scholarship.”
