New scholarship targets high school business students

In addition to fueling Albuquerque’s ranch dressing addiction, Dion’s wants to help fuel business-savvy students’ education.

High school seniors involved in such business groups as DECA, High School of Business and Future Business Leaders of America can now apply for a new $2,500 scholarship.

To get the dough – pun intended – students will need to answer essay questions and get a reference letter.

The application and fine print are online at

Applications are due March 6, and the winner will be announced in May.

Forms can be mailed or emailed to the Dion’s Scholarship Board. Email:; snail mail: 8525 Jefferson St. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113.

PRE-K REGISTRATION: Speaking of March 6, Albuquerque Public Schools announced that’s the day prekindergarten registration will open for the 2020-21 school year. Parents can use the APS information system, ParentVUE, to register.

Students have to be 4 years old before Sept. 1 to be eligible.

UNDERWEAR DRIVE: APS Community Clothing Bank is asking for new, packaged underwear donations for students in need.

During February, the clothing bank is hosting a “Show You Care With Underwear” drive.

All sizes can be donated, although the district says most needed are boys and girls small sizes (4-8) and all women’s sizes.

Donation boxes are at APS headquarters, 6400 Uptown NE.

A LITTLE HELP: Michaiah Ryan, a 10-year-old fifth grader in Washington, is asking the good people of New Mexico to help her with her research report.

Michaiah is charged with getting as much information on the Land of Enchantment as she can. And as part of the project, she is asking for state memorabilia.

“If any of your readers would like to help me by sending any pictures, postcards, used license plates, facts, products, etc. from your state, it would be greatly appreciated!” she wrote in a letter to the Journal.

Her mom says she is super-excited and is already spouting New Mexico fun facts.

You can send the goods to Cascade Christian School, 601 9th Avenue SE, Puyallup, WA 98372.

Michaiah is hoping to get things by early April.

“SUPER” JOB: The Bat Signal is out for the district’s next leader.

The Board of Education is taking applications to fill the role that oversees the largest district in the state, with over 80,000 students.

Current Superintendent Raquel Reedy has announced she will retire at the end of the school year.

Applications, which are due Feb. 24, can be submitted online
