Eastern Arizona College’s 34th Annual Scholarship Banquet was earlier this month, which recognizes the scholastic achievements of nearly 80 EAC students, and a student from Mesa earned a scholarship.

Lila Claussen of Mesa, daughter of Valerie and Larry Claussen received the Ora Deconcini-Martin Scholarship, which is presented to a returning full-time student and a new freshman student pursuing a degree in Buisness Administration or Buisness Education with a minimum GPA of 3.0.

The banquet, held at EAC’s campus in Thatcher, recognized donors and recipients of nearly 55 scholarships.

Many of the scholarships are annually funded by the generous contributions of various organizations and individuals, while others are endowed scholarships funded by the earnings of funds provided by the gifts of donors.
