*The Estrella A. Romero family is reaching out to New Mexico high schools to spread the word about our newly founded scholarship, The Estella A. Romero Scholarship "Seeding An Education". The scholarship targets high school graduates who have been affected by DWI/DUI and meet certain criteria.
We've created a Facebook page with all the details and would like to make it available on your site or as part of any other resources you use to distribute scholarship information to your seniors.

We'd especially like to include Robertson High School, since the Romero family has roots in Las Vegas, NM and was affected by DWI/DUI. Scholarship Information
