APS Seniors Named Daniels Scholars

Prestigious scholarship recognizes students for character, leadership, service.

The non-profit Daniels Fund has selected several Albuquerque Public Schools seniors as finalists in its 2013 Daniels Scholars program.

“The Daniels Fund says it wants to make the world a better place, one individual at a time,” APS Superintendent Winston Brooks said. “Their recognition of outstanding high school seniors who demonstrate character, leadership and commitment to service will go a long way to do that. We’re grateful to the Daniels Fund for providing scholarship opportunities to our students.”

Scholarship recipients from Albuquerque are Ashley Coito, Manzano High School; Justin Lam, La Cueva High; Cherise Nieto, Rio Grande High; Lorenzo Sanchez, Albuquerque High; and Arturo Castillo, South Valley Academy, which is an APS-authorized charter school.

The students were selected from some 3,000 applicants by the Denver-based Daniels Fund. About 250 seniors in New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Wyoming will receive scholarships. Forty-one are from New Mexico.

The Daniels Scholarship Program is among the most comprehensive in the nation, packaging its college scholarship with resources, support, training, and connections that prepare Daniels Scholars to graduate ready to win in the real world.

Daniels Scholars may attend any accredited nonprofit college or university in the United States. The Daniels Scholarship Program covers tuition and fees, room and board, books, and miscellaneous educational expenses.
