The three nominees were chosen on the basis of their accomplishments in life and their involvement in community activities. A committee composed of members of the Morenci Area High School Volunteer Club, assisted by Foundation president Bill VanValkenburg, made the selections...

Dinner tickets are on sale for $20 a person or $35 a couple through April 15. Tickets are available at the Board of Education office, Stair Public Library, and the Morenci branch of United Bank & Trust.

The Morenci Education Foundation Dinner and Auction is the primary fund raiser for the Foundation’s Scholarship Fund. As a result of last year’s event, seven Morenci Area High School graduates each received $1,000 scholarships.
