Daughters of Pioneers offer scholarship

The Daughters of Gila County Pioneers will offer a scholarship to a female student who graduates from a high school in Gila County this spring.

In order to encourage and help members of the pioneering families of Gila County who had an ancestor living in Gila County prior to statehood, Feb. 14, 1912, the Daughters offer this scholarship, as they have done for the past 17 years. Information on the scholarship is available at each high school in Gila County.

For more information, call Patty Rhoades at (928) 474-2286.

Scholarships offered for high school juniors and seniors

The Democratic Women of Rim Country have scholarship opportunities available for high school juniors and seniors. Students of any political affiliation are eligible.

Two junior girls will be selected by DWRC, in conjunction with the local American Legion, to receive scholarships to attend the 2009 meeting of Girls State at the University of Arizona in Tucson. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about government.

The DWRC also has two $500 scholarships available for high school seniors, either boys or girls, who plan to attend Gila Community College. 

See the PHS counseling staff to apply for either of these opportunities. For further information, you can also call Elaine Bohlmeyer at (928) 474-5587.

Gila Community College classes

How do you cope with a changing world?

Gila Community College has an answer. GCC is offering two hot programs, nursing and computer technology.

If you’re uncertain about a new career, GCC is offering a personal assessment class this summer. The course allows you to investigate your own potential. You can find out just what it is that you are best suited for in this modern work environment. What skills do you presently have? What new skills can you learn? What must you do to re-adapt to the real marketplace?

GCC’s personal assessment class offers you an opportunity to discover your hidden potential. The course will be taught by Robert Mayer, and is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 6 to 7:50 p.m. May 26-July 16.

You may check the entire summer and fall semester schedules, as well as register online, at, or visit the Payson campus at 201 N. Mud Springs Road.
