Eddie Oldham Memorial Scholarships awarded

Two Pagosa Springs High School graduates are this year’s recipients of the Eddie Oldham Memorial Scholarship.

Waylon Lucero has been active in local 4-H activities for over 11 years and has held the positions of president, vice president and secretary of the local 4-H chapter. An avid outdoorsman and athlete, Waylon will attend Adams State College and plans to study wildlife biology.

A second scholarship was awarded to Emily Greer. Emily has won a Grand Champion award at the county fair, a Reserve Champion at the state fair and was 4-H Leader of the Year. She will attend Chapman University this fall.

The Eddie Oldham Memorial Scholarship is a renewable scholarship awarded annually to at least one applicant who has been involved in the 4-H program. This scholarship has given many collegians financial support over the last 19 years. The scholarship is the only true renewable scholarship 4-H has to offer.

The Eddie Oldham Memorial Scholarship was established in 1991 and is overseen by Ike Oldham and his wife, Sharron. The scholarship was established when their son, Eddie Oldham, was tragically killed in an accident in 1989.

The second annual Fund-raiser Trail Ride and Bar-B-Q will be held in the Blanco Basin July 24. More information is available by contacting the Archuleta County Extension office at 264-5931.
