New Macey Scholars Represent Best Of The Best

SOCORRO, N.M. May 9, 2013 – The four new Macey Scholars share certain traits, but they represent a cross-section of the New Mexico Tech.

They are all from different academic disciplines. They are all from New Mexico -- although all from different hometowns. Two are traditional students who expect to finish in four years. One is a transfer student. The fourth completed a two-year mission to El Salvador before entering college.

As always, the new winners represent the top students in their fields. They are all active in campus clubs; they all do community service; and they all have participated in research projects. For individual profiles of each, click on their names below or under their pictures at the right.

This year’s winners:

Each of the four winners submitted an essay and letters of recommendation from professors and researchers. A campus committee selected the winners from a large field of applicants.

Elaine Debrine Howell, director of the Center for Student Success and a committee member said the new batch of Macey Scholars are both stellar students and show a great degree of leadership.

“I am very pleased with our selections again this year,” Debrine Howell said. “These four students represent Tech as outstanding students and all-around good people. I’m confident that they will go on to bigger and better things once they leave Tech. They are truly deserving of the title ‘Macey Scholar’.”

Named after the university’s most generous donor, the Macey Scholar award is Tech’s most prestigious scholarship, and includes an award of $5,000. The Macey Scholars will organize and present a campus-wide seminar about their topics of interest during the 2014 spring semester.

Mr. Bill Macey graduated from New Mexico School of Mines in 1942. He has been New Mexico Tech’s strongest supporter over the years. He donated more than $1 million for the construction of the Macey Center. Macey also staked matching funds for other donations for the construction and other funding for the Macey Family Children’s Center.

Macey Scholars are chosen for their academic accomplishments – both in the classroom and the research laboratory – as well as their community service, participation in extracurricular activities and character.
