10 Native Americans win scholarships

For 20 years, the Friends of Hubbell National Trading Post Historic Site has supported Native American arts and crafts, provided scholarships to Four Corners college students and increased awareness of the Southwest’s trading post heritage.

As part of the Friends of Hubbell program, 10 Native Americans students from the Four Corners have been awarded scholarships for the 2019—20 academic year from the proceeds of its semi-annual auctions held in Gallup.

Students must be at least a junior in an accredited college, with a minimum 3.0 academic average and go through a rigorous selection process. This is the sixth year in a row that Friends of Hubbell has awarded this many scholarships and has granted over $200,000 since this program’s inception. It also provided special project support for the trading post.

Friends of Hubbell was established in 1990. In 20 years, its auctions have returned nearly $3 million to the community through the weavers and other artists who consigned items into its auctions.

The 2019-20 scholarship winners are:

• Dominique Yellowhair, Dixie State University, biology

• Autumn Martin, University of New Mexico, nursing

• Shondin Marie Lewis, University of New Mexico, business administration/psychology

• Presleigh Smiley, University of New Mexico, psychology

• Keyauni Tracey, University of Arizona, Public Health

• Kaitlyn Brea Lopez, Northern Arizona University, nursing

• Madison Hansen, University of Utah, biology

• Jerry L. Yazzie Sr., Dine College, psychology

• Cory Leah Morgan, Dine College, psychology

• Thea Benally, University of New Mexico, exercise science

More information on the scholarship program can be found at www.friendsofhubbell.org. The next auction will be held at the Gallup Community Center on Sept. 28.
