The college Scholarship created in honor of the late Neva Sizemore, a long-time resident of Keyes, is once again being offered to any senior graduating from a Cimarron County High School in 2009.

This Scholarship provides $10,000.00 annually for four years of undergraduate study toward a Bachelor’s degree at any accredited college or university in the United States. Please note: All direct descendants of Neva Sizemore are ineligible to apply for this Scholarship.

Academic achievement is important, and the applicant’s grades will be considered, but this scholarship recognizes that grades are not the only measure of a person’s aptitude or dedication.

On Cultural Encounters and Tangents


How has the faltering economy affected you?

I’m sure it has touched us all directly or indirectly.

Most of my immediate family members’ economic situation is unchanged, thank God, but it’s the cousins that followed the housing boom that are hurting. The folks in California, the Carolinas, Las Vegas, Atlanta and other previously booming cities, are out of house construction jobs. Some of them have returned to Mexico with teenage kids that were born in America. My cousin in California tells me that many businesses in her neighborhood have closed and some of them that had hired many illegal Mexicans first, anonymously, called ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs enforcement) to round up the workers and deport them so they wouldn’t have to pay them. Anyway, ICE has more time on their hands to do this nowadays because illegal border crossings are down. Usually when somebody crosses illegally they do so after having communicated with a relative and being assured of finding a job with them or close by.
