NativeVision™ awards two scholarships to Native youth entering their first year of college in the Fall of each year. Scholarship applications are due in the first week of May of each year.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2013 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS!!
Christianna is from the Navajo Nation and grew up in Farmington, New Mexico. She graduated high school this year from Navajo Prep. She went through many challenges as a younger person, and she persevered! Her grades steadily climbed until she was enrolled in high school in all Gifted and Talented courses. She ran track and weight-lifted. She was also very committed to community service where she volunteered at a soup kitchen, an animal shelter and participated in charitable activities with her church. Christianna will attend New Mexico State University. She plans to focus her college studies on business management.
Ashley is from the Western side of the Navajo Nation, from Kayenta, Arizona. In high school, Ashley Holiday was an honor roll student, a member of the national honor society, and she won a top ten academic award for all 4 years of high school. She also has been devoted to community service, focusing on both elders and veterans. Ashley was an avid high school athlete. She played volleyball, cross country, basketball and track all 4 years. Ashley will be attending Dixie State College in St. George, Utah to study nursing.
We are very proud of Christianna and Ashley and look forward to reporting back to our Native Vision family on their success!
