2010 Scholarship Winner

Mia Cauzza is the $500 Pie Town Community Council 2010 Community Service Scholarship winner. Mia will be attending New Mexico State University in the Fall with plans of obtaining a degree in elementary education.

Mia has been active in a wide range of community activities, including cleaning up debris in not only her home town, but Pie Town, Reserve, the County fairgrounds, and the dump. Although the work is not glamourous, Mia always feels a sense of satisfaction at the end of these clean-up days.

Mia can also be found behind the concession table at just about any event, raising money for various groups and causes. She has been instrumental in organizing community blood drives and rabies clinics and even overcame her fear of needles to make two blood donations.

Mia is the type of person who does what it takes with a positive attitude. She says she has learned that ". . . the smallest things that you do can make a big difference in life," and we couldn't agree more. We are confident that Mia will continue her volunteer service no matter how busy she is at the University, and that she will be an asset to whatever community is lucky enough to have her.

Congratulations and good luck, Mia!

How to Apply in 2014

The Pie Town Community Council invites graduating seniors from Quemado High School or home-schooled students who reside within postal codes 87827, 87829 and 87821 to apply for its 2011 scholarship. Applicants must be planning to attend an accredited post-secondary education program.

The $750 scholarship will be awarded based solely upon the applicant’s record of volunteer community service, which may be performed anywhere in the world. Financial need and academic achievement will not be considered. Community service cannot be for the sole benefit of a family member, nor can it be court-ordered. Examples of qualifying community service include, but are not limited to, school fund-raising, Scouting, 4H, FFA, church activities, tutoring, or simply helping a neighbor.

To apply, the student must provide the following:

  1. Student’s name and contact information.

  2. Name of high school (or parent-teacher’s name if home-schooled).

  3. Name of the college or other school that student will be attending, and proposed field of study.

  4. Description of volunteer services performed between May 1, 2009 and April 30, 2011, location of service, estimated hours, and the name and phone number of a person who can verify this information.

  5. A personal story no more than one page in length in which the applicant describes the importance of the service(s) and how the student was enriched by the experience(s).

  6. Optional: Letters of support (one page or less) written by non-family members may be submitted, either with the application or separately.

Check this page in May of 2011 for deadlines and mailing addresses. If you have questions, you may e-mail scholarship@pietowncouncil.com, or leave a message at 575-772-2525.
