Consuelo and Melvin Cordova Future Teacher Scholarship
Melvin Cordova was a beloved teacher, coach and educational leader who served many rural areas of northern New Mexico. Melvin taught the importance of an education and he taught his students as if they were his own children. His students were educated with conviction, care and compassion. The Consuelo and Melvin Cordova endowment helps students embarking on a teaching career with the expenses of the final semesters before graduation during student teaching. This endowment selects students in the College of Education with a preference for students returning to teach in rural New Mexico.
