Jonathan Sherman Spradling Memorial Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 4

The Jonathan Sherman Spradling Memorial Scholarship was established in loving memory of Jonathan Spradling (June 2, 1978 October 12, 2001), a native New Mexican who graduated from Artesia High School. He was a good student as well as student council leader and president. He was the recipient of several prestigious awards. He played on the state championship Bulldog football team and loved education, music, art, reading and writing.

Jonathan was just 23 at the time of his accident. At the University of New Mexico, he was a senior studying English and History. His plan was to become a classroom teacher. Jonathan was a gifted young man who was very close to his family and always ready to lend a hand to someone in need. At UNM, he enjoyed his continued writings, as well as his literature, art, and history classes. His interests ranged from World War II to Buddhism to fine art to the finest cheap burrito. He was most happy camping in the Jemez Mountains or on the shores of Elephant Butte and snowboarding in New Mexico's beautiful mountains. Jonathan was drawn to politics and worked with his party for two years as a press secretary and campaign coordinator. Throughout his lifetime, Jonathan was involved with people and community service, and he easily made friends everywhere.

Four $1,000 scholarships will be awarded to four graduating seniors from the following high schools: Artesia High School, Belen High School, Century High School, Los Lunas High School, and Valencia High School. Applicants must have a 2.0 minimum, cumulative high school GPA and plan to attend a post-secondary institution in New Mexico. Applicants must also have a history of doing community service.
