Corine Gonzales has joined the faculty of the University of New Mexico-Gallup as Medical Laboratory Technician program director.

Gonzales, formerly a medical technologist at Gallup Indian Medical Center and Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services, was also a faculty member in the Medical Technology Department and the graduate school of the Angeles University Foundation of the Philippines. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Medical Technology and a Master’s in microbiology. Gonzales is also certified as an International medical Technologist by the America Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).

Entrepreneurship Students May Apply for Scholarship

The Johnson Scholarship Foundation is once again awarding funds to Business Management and Technology students enrolled in the certificate or associate’s degree in Entrepreneurship, Business Administration or a management-related field of study at UNM-Gallup for the fall semester. The total grant awarded is $25,000 for the academic year 2012-13 in support of the Rural Entrepreneur Institute of UNMG.

The scholarship, which is based on need as well as merit, was increased by $5000 for the academic year 2012-2013.  

JSF, of West Palm Beach, Fla., has been a supporter of the REI at UNM-Gallup since 2009. The foundation requires that the annual award be split in half between fall and spring semesters. A selection committee chooses the recipients from a field of applicants.

The funds will be used for tuition, books, school supplies, transportation and other needs. The awardees must maintain a 2.0 grade point average to remain eligible for the scholarship. However, students who maintain a 3.5 GPA or better may be awarded up to $4000 for the academic year.

“The Johnson Scholarship Foundation requires that students be committed and dedicated to business professions or careers, with the long-term goal of being business owners,” said Al Henderson, UNM-Gallup lecturer in Business Technology and coordinator of the Rural Entrepreneur Institute, adding that UNM-Gallup is required to track the students during the course of their study and after they graduate.

Students interested in the scholarship for the fall semester may contact Henderson at 863-7634, or
