Roswell High School Graduation Classes Establish New ENMU-Roswell Scholarship
The Roswell High School classes of 1968 and 1969 have created a new scholarship fund to encourage future graduating RHS students to attend ENMU-Roswell. Having concluded their 50th reunion last year, the RHS alumni have donated the $6,800 reunion fund to the ENMU-Roswell 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. This scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student to use toward tuition, books, and/or other educational costs. The scholarship is open to students with financial need enrolled in any ENMU-Roswell program or course of study. The scholarship 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 benefitted 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.”
