New Mexico State University student and Los Alamos resident Kyanna Martinez has been awarded the 2013 President's Associates Scholarship.

She is one of 15 NMSU students selected to receive the President's Associates Scholarship.

"We're all very proud of this 35th freshman class of President's Associates Scholars," said Thomas Price, president of the PA Board and a PA Scholar alumnus. "These high-achieving students represent the very best of all regions of New Mexico. I'm confident that the time they'll spend as President's Associates Scholars will help each of these students achieve successful and rewarding futures. As we extend our congratulations to the scholars and their families, the PA Board would also like to once again thank the many donors who recognize the value of this scholarship to the university through their generous, on-going support."

The President's Associates Scholarship is NMSU's most prestigious scholarship. It is awarded to outstanding high school students from New Mexico who demonstrate academic excellence, community involvement and strong leadership potential.

Martinez, daughter of Elizabeth Martinez, graduated from Los Alamos High School and is majoring in animal science. She was a member of the Los Alamos High School thespian and dance clubs and the National Honor Society. She volunteered as an elementary school tutor, helped out at a veterinary clinic, and participated in color guard.

Since the creation of the scholarship in 1978, it has been awarded to more than 300 students, representing every academic discipline and every community in New Mexico.
