Albuquerque, NM – After looking over the many applications we received from high school seniors interested in our Growth and Achievement Scholarship program, the Republican Party of New Mexico is excited to announce our recipient of the Growth and Achievement Scholarship.
Haley Hall, a graduate of Grants High School in Cibola County, New Mexico will receive the $1500 scholarship toward her studies at Eastern New Mexico University.
The Growth and Achievement Scholarship program was started last year as a way for the Republican Party of New Mexico to give back to the community and recognize high school seniors with outstanding academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities and involvement with their community.
“Haley is a very accomplished young girl with a bright future and we’re excited to play a part in advancing her education,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Debbie Maestas. “Our staff has been diligently reviewing the applications we received and Haley showed the exemplary academic achievement, extracurricular participation and community engagement we were looking to highlight with this scholarship.”
Haley Hall graduated third in her class with a 4.283 GPA. Throughout her high school career she was also a two year member of the National Honor Society, a four-year varsity basketball player and Team Captain, a varsity golfer and a varsity track competitor, and gave back to the community regularly with her involvement in the Grant Rodeo Association and the GHS Lady Pirate Basketball Camp. Letters of recommendation praised her character and commitment to success. She plans to study communications with a specialization in advertising at ENMU.
“The launch of our Growth and Achievement Scholarship program was a big success and we look forward to continuing to reward our dedicated high school seniors in the years ahead,” said Chairman Maestas.
