Scholarship Winners Announced
Winners of the 2012 Daniel Kasza Memorial Scholarships were recently announced. Two scholarships were given to McClave School graduates, and one scholarship was awarded to a District VI 4-H member.
McClave High School graduating senior Brittney Kemp received a $500 scholarship, as did McClave alumnus Natasha Idler. Kemp will be attending Colorado State University Fort Collins, majoring in Biochemistry. An honor student, she was co-valedictorian her class. Her goal is to combine her love of children and passion for science by pursuing a pediatrics or pediatric occupational therapy degree.
Idler was a 2010 McClave graduate, and graduated from Lamar Community College in 2011. For the past year, she has been working full-time to earn money to attend Pueblo Community College to become a Dental Hygienist. She is an active volunteer with the local nursing home and at her church.
The Daniel Kasza Memorial 4-H Scholarship was awarded to Briana Huff of Swink High School. A fourteen-year 4-H member, Huff has been a strong role model and mentor for youth in Otero County. She will be attending Otero Junior College. The 4-H scholarship was open to graduating seniors who were 4-H members in Baca, Bent, Crowley, Cheyenne, Kiowa, Otero and Prowers counties.
The scholarships are given in memory of Daniel Kasza through many generous donations. A McClave High School graduate, Kasza was a student at Ft Lewis College at the time of his death in June 2009. These scholarships were given to the 4-H and McClave communities because of their influence on Kasza.
The National Honor Society at Lamar High School inducted 21 new member on March 19th, 2012. During the past year the group has completed monthly community service projects such as a trick-or-treat street, Thanksgiving treats for MHDC preschoolers, Christmas food baskets and bi-monthly visits to the nursing home.
