Buckhorn Tavern Scholarship Fund Announcement!🎓👏👏🎓👏👏🎓Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico #community Socorro CountyWe are so excited to announce a new scholarship fund for our community, the Buckhorn Tavern Scholarship! The Buckhorn Tavern, owned and operated by Ernie and Stephanie Sichler, will be helping students receive their GED degrees and get started in trade schools. Several of their staff members were not able to attend trade schools or community colleges, and some didn’t even have the opportunity to complete high school or receive their GED’s. The scholarship was established to not only provide tuition assistance but also help with transportation issues that sometimes can be a barrier in a small, rural community. “As business owners, we have seen the problems employees can have with transportation and how it can even be hard to get to work somedays,” said Ernie. The scholarship will not only support tuition costs for trade schools, community colleges, or GED test fees but will also cover the transportation costs to help recipients get to GED testing sites in Los Lunas or Albuquerque.We are so lucky to have people like Stephanie and Ernie in our community! #CFSNM #community #ServeConnectSupport #newmexicostudent #scholarshipalert #lascrucescolleges #scholarships #nonprofitnewmexico #impact ...
