Oklahoma Panhandle State University President Dave Bryant and Vice President of Outreach Wayne Manning crowned the 2005 Fiesta King and Queen scholarship recipients in Guymon on September 18, 2005. Congratulations to King Luis Alvarez and Queen Jezebel DeLeGarza, who both won full OPSU tuition waivers for the 2006-2007 school year.

Alvarez is the son of Bernardino and Eugenia Alvarez, and DeLeGarza is the daughter of Armando and Maria DeLeGarza. Both are seniors at Guymon High School and plan to begin their college careers at OPSU in the fall of 2006.

Criteria for the scholarships include bilingual skills, academic performance and writing ability, extracurricular activities and community involvement. Students complete a short essay describing what the long-term benefits to the community might be if the student is awarded the scholarship. Contestants are also judged on personal interview and communication skills.

In addition to the King and Queen scholarships, candidates Linda Dang, Michelle Martinez, Marivel Medina, and Lilly Villa each received a $300.00 tuition waiver.

OPSU remains committed to increasing its Hispanic student population to more accurately reflect the demographics of the surrounding communities.
