At the annual Texas Association of Student Special Services Programs, Inc. Leadership Conference at the University of Texas-El Paso last month, Weatherford College student Marcos Barron received the Eddie Anaya Memorial Scholarship. Named for the late Anaya, who emigrated from Mexico with his family in the 1950s and ultimately became the executive director of LEARN Inc., the scholarship recognizes students, who, like Anaya, are changing their lives by getting an education and encouraging others to do the same.

The scholarship, in the amount of $200, also included a laptop computer and printer, said Kristin Flores, WC student Support Services counselor, who attended the three-day conference with Barron and six other TRIO students.
