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.

Redman, daughter of Michael and Cynthia Redman, graduated from McCurdy High School. She is pursuing a degree in biology and forensic science. Her interests include musical theater and sports. She has always been interested in science and hopes to pursue a career in forensic science.

The President's Associates program is now in its 33rd year and is overseen by a volunteer board of directors, which includes several NMSU alumni who also received the scholarship as students. The board helps raise the funds for the generous stipend each student receives and organizes a variety of mentoring and career development activities for the scholars.

Among the donors who made Redman's award possible is President's Associates alum Roy Trujillo, who grew up in Espanola.

"My fellow board members join me in congratulating Lindsay on this outstanding achievement," said Denni Cheney, president of the President's Associates Board. "She joins other outstanding Espanola students who have previously received the President's Associates Scholarship, and we look forward to seeing her achieve her ambitions at NMSU and in her future career."

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.
