EDWARDS, Colorado – The 16th annual Alpine Bank Latino/Hispanic Scholarship awards were presented in May to 12 graduating high school seniors from area high schools.

The students are awarded scholarships that cover two years of tuition, fees and books at any Colorado Mountain College campus, up to a maximum of $2,200 per student, per year. Recipients demonstrate financial need and a strong desire to pursue a college education full time. Many of the students are the first in their families to attend college and otherwise would not be able to afford higher education.

The 2011 class of student scholars and their respective high schools are Yanira Canas, Basalt; Ana Vega Terrazas, Roaring Fork; Cesar “Alex” Alvarado, merit scholar, Roaring Fork; Cristal Aguirre, Glenwood Springs; Maria Jimenez Cobian, Yampah Mountain; Mark Aguirre, Coal Ridge; Israel Ulloa, Rifle; Azucena Dominguez, Red Canyon; Guadalupe Gutierrez, Battle Mountain; Jaime Silva, Eagle Valley; Maria Martinez-Lopez, Summit; and Claudia Janette Najera, Steamboat Springs.

The scholarship program began in 1996 with four scholars and has since awarded some 120 student scholarships.
