That was the announcement made by Principal Janean Garney following Monday night's Deming High School Awards and Scholarship Recognition Program in the Deming Public Schools auditorium.
Garney said she phrases the announcement that way because some students are offered opportunities at more than one college or university, and so will have to decline some of the scholarships.
She said local scholarships totaled over 66-thousand dollars... national scholarships totaled over half-a-million dollars... offers from in-state schools totaled over two-million dollars... and offers from out-of-state schools totaled over 750-thousand dollars.
The Deming High Class of 2012 will graduate Friday evening at Memorial Stadium.
