Every year Pioneer bank provides funds for an annual scholarship sponsored by the Historical Society for Southeastern New Mexico. This non-profit organization awards one student that exemplifies outstanding community support, academic achievement and will be majoring in American Studies, History, or similar subjects. Each student is required to write an essay, which is then judged by a committee from the Historical Society.
For 2017, after some hard decisions and deliberating, the committee determined that two students stood out from the rest and decided to split the scholarship. Congratulations to Theron “TJ” Coleman of Roswell High School and Julia Diaz of Goddard High School on their achievements. These two are wonderful students and we know they will go far.
“We are extremely pleased at the opportunity to support the academic work, as well as the commitment to our community’s history, which has been demonstrated and are being recognized in the efforts of both Julia and TJ'” states Chad Cole, Pioneer Bank Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Our area students and their families represent not only our heritage, but our future. We could not be more proud of all of this year’s community scholarship award recipients and sponsors, and the message that they will carry with them about our community, it’s heritage and its future. Congratulations to all of this year’s graduating seniors and their families!”
