Mancos High School 2019 graduate and salutatorian Taeylor Samora has been awarded a $1,000 scholarship from the Colorado County Clerks Association.
Montezuma County Clerk Kim Percell recommended Samora’s application because of her leadership with 4-H Club and for developing the Future Farmers of America program in Mancos.
“She saw an interest and found a way to get the program started,” Percell said. “Her hope is to inspire and educate others.”
The Colorado County Clerks Association has established a scholarship fund to aid outstanding high school seniors who are residents of Colorado in furthering their education at any university, college, junior college, or technical institution.
Samora was one of nine awarded the scholarship statewide. She plans to attend Arizona State University. Shania Maestas, of Alamosa County, was the other southern scholarship winner. She plans to attend Adams State University.
