Hi everyone! My name is Kristen Leyva I
miss New Mexico USA and I am so excited to share with you all that an MSU
college of Engineering and myself have partnered to create the Joel Leyva
Memorial Scholarship this scholarship is an honor of an incredible woman named
Joel Leyva who inspired and impacted so many lives throughout her life she’s a
very woman that actually inspired me to become the engineer and woman I am today
and I unfortunately lost her two months before I was getting ready to graduate
from NMSU with my degree in mechanical engineering
this woman was also my mother and she was also an NMSU graduate and she also
obtained a degree in mechanical engineering and went on to work for
Department of Defense just like I am today and this scholarship is going to
help impact so many students and help them achieve their dreams of becoming an
engineer just like she helped me achieve mine so join me in investing in these
students futures and creating the next generation of Engineers thank you
