Silver City, NM: Sylvia Rain Myers been named by the New Mexico Foundation as the 2022 recipient of the Aldo Leopold Charter School’s Ella, Michael and Ella Memorial Scholarship. She has been awarded $2,000.
The Ella, Michael, Ella Memorial Scholarship was established in 2015 in loving honor and memory of the Aldo Leopold Charter School students Ella Kirk, Michael Mahl and Ella Myers who lost their lives in an airplane accident in May of 2014. Their dedication to environmental studies, music and the arts, and their level of community involvement and civic engagement, serves as an inspiration to all.
Sylvia was born in the village of Pinos Altos, and has loved the forest ever since. Growing up in and around Silver City, she learned to love the rivers, creeks, and wild spaces of southwest New Mexico, while also gaining a love of travel and adventure as she road tripped with her family across the country, visiting friends and family in Colorado, California, and New England. As a student at Aldo Leopold Charter School, Sylvia found a strong community of friends and kindred spirits who shared her love of adventure and the outdoors. In her time at Aldo, she strove for academic excellence, participated in the Ecomonitoring YCC crew, Envirothon, and took a variety of classes under the dual enrollment program at WNMU. After COVID hit during her sophmore year and everything went online, Sylvia was able to attend the School for Ethics and Global Leadership in Washington, DC for the spring semester of her junior year. This fall, Sylvia will be attending Swarthmore College in Swarthmore, PA where she hopes to double major in Peace and Conflict Studies and Environmental Science.

You can still donate to your favorite Nonprofits (and don't forget your favorite Community Foundation)
If you want to be a true professional, you will do something outside yourself, something to repair tears in your community, something to make life a little better for people less fortunate than you. That’s what I think a meaningful life is – living for one’s community.

Our community is pretty amazing. Even in an economy where many are struggling at the moment, our donors are stepping up and supporting local area nonprofits. You have given almost $200,000 already to nonprofits participating in Give Grandly this year, and we are all extremely grateful. Almost all the participating organizations have met their $500 match. But we are not done yet! There are still a few days left in the campaign.
