Waatsa Wins Returning Homemaker Scholarship

LAS CRUCES -- Justice Waatsa was selected recently as the recipient of the Returning Homemaker Scholarship by the Doņa Ana County Extension Clubs Council.


Waatsa will receive a $250 scholarship for the fall semester. Recipients must be currently enrolled in the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences at New Mexico State University. The scholarship supports homemakers who return to college.

Waatsa, a graduate student majoring in marriage and family therapy, expects to receive her master's degree in 2001. After graduation, she plans to work for the Mental Health Department at Zuni Public Health Service.

"She is highly motivated and has both background and experience to apply," said Martha Loustaunau, professor of sociology at NMSU.

Waasta was selected on the basis of an application and essay.

She received her bachelor's degree in sociology from NMSU in the spring.
