Welcome to Rising Stars in The Southwest, A Leadership Process Enabling Youths to Make Positive Life Choices.

"It starts with a dream or vision!"   
On May 8th
New Mexico Bank & Trust hosted the annual Rising Stars in the Southwest Scholarship Award Celebration. The evening is a celebration recognizing highly motivated seniors and shares the opportunity to start their college with some resources and financial planning. Students competed with a dream essay that describes the student's personal dream for his or her life, school, or career. Secretary of PED, Dr. Karin Trujillo, and Santa Fe School District Superintendent Dr. Veronica Garcia shared some very wise words for our Rising Stars Scholars. The students accepted their checks and presented to a very well attended event. They shared their next school with one student going to UNM's School of Engineering but demonstrate a wide area of career interests, doctors, vets, computer science, and others. 

The Rising Stars Processis designed to help today's youth develop their personal leadership skills and begin to set goals and directions for their lives beginning at an earlier age. Leadership is essential in enabling teens to develop character, confidence, and values that promote healthy behavior.  
Our Visionis to promote the talents and healthy behaviors of teenagers and to develop their potential for leadership in our community.
