Army National Guard Minuteman Scholarships Awarded

November 17, 2015 - Dorene DiNaro

We would like to congratulate five cadets in the UNM Army ROTC who were recently awarded the prestigious 2015 New Mexico Army National Guard Minuteman scholarships. There are only six of these scholarships awarded each year, and five of those six were awarded to UNM cadets:  Zachary Jessee, Christopher Alvarez, Nadine Oglesby, Brandon Martinez, and Tyler Hernandez. In a letter from Governor Martinez, she praised these individuals for not only “answering the call to attend college, but also answering the call to serve our great state, and our nation.”  Scholarship recipients received full tuition and fees or room and board ($10,000 per year), a cadet monthly stipend, a book stipend, and eligibility for State education benefits. Please see the article by Mara Kerkez from UCAM on Inside UNM regarding these scholarships.  We are very proud of you all!
