Saturday', Aug. 11, 1945
Amache, Colo,
That Amache high school graduates are college-minded is shown by the fact that
approximately 22 per cent of the classes of 1943 and 19'44 are now, or have een,
enrolled in institutions of higher learning. These include colleges, universities,
nurses' training, trade and business schools, Among the latter, there are probably
others enrolled of whom there is no rord, since It is not necessary for students
to get transcripts of records for many fcusiness and trade schools. Figures for the
1945 classes aro not complete since applications are coning in almost daily. How
ever, seven mid-term graduates hav already enrolled and 20 Juno graduates have
been accepted for fall terms to date. Others who had planned a college career have
had to postpone entry because of service in the Army.
That they are relocation-minded, also, is shown by the faot that out of 627
students who have graduated since Amache s first commencement in 1943, only 53 are
still in tho center, and some of these are leaving shortly to enter college.
High school students who will not yet be 17 when school begins should make re
location plans at once if not going with their parents. If returning to California
with or without their parents no special rule applies. But going to any other
state without parents, those below 17 have to have a special permit from the Board
of Childron's Guidance of the statoto vdaich they go. These permits may be obtained
through the relocation advisor. It takes about a nonth to get returns.
Tuitioji rules of many years' standing, apply to all groups, but jany states and
citie3 have waived the rule in favor of nisei, How, however, sinco parents are
again living as rogular residents of states, ex-resident fees will bo charged if
students aro not in the same state as parents. Inquire at the relocation offico
of cities and states making exception to this rule.
Amacho St udent Scholarship Fund
The macho Student Scholarship rVmd is now available to worthy graduates who
need assistance in entering or continuing their college education. Grants up to
350 are allowed, .application blanks may be obtained from Mr. tfalther at the high
school. To date, eight isnache graduates have received scholarships from the fund
and several applications are pending.
The Amacho Scholarship ia.d was started in the fall of 1945 as an expression
of appreciation to Superintendent of Schools Paul J. Terry when he loft the center
to entor the US liavy. From the $200 donated at that time by Amacho residents tha
fund has increased to over $1000, Ihch credit should be-given to Dr. Takashi
Terami, treasurer, who was the leader in starting and establishing the fund.
