Rolling Stones Scholars

Jamey Shepard

Mr. Jamey Shepard and Mr. Isaih Reynolds are the Rolling Stones Gem and Mineral society Scholarship recipients for 2014-2015. 

Jamey, a previous recipient of the scholarship, is a senior majoring in Forestry & Wildlife with a geology minor and expects to graduate in May. Jamey is an Army veteran, who has worked in many areas of the west before returning to school to
pursue a degree. He is currently looking for a career job, but has not ruled out the possibility of additional education once he graduates.

Isaih Reynolds

Isaih is a junior also majoring in forestry & wildlife with a geology minor. A native of Hawai’i, Isaih’s principle interest is in wildlife, but is also very interested in volcanology.

The Grant County Rolling stones has been providing funds for scholarships at the Western New Mexico University for geology minors for many years.  This supports the basic purpose of the Society, which  is the exchange of information & furtherance of the knowledge of mineralogy, gem cutting, geology, and to stimulate interest in the development of these studies.

The two scholarship to  WNMU of $750 each, a continuing fund to help with field trips for students taking geology classes at WNMU, a $500 donation to the Grant County Search and Rescue, a $500 donation to the Gila Conservation Education Center,  and a $1000 donation to The New Mexico Mineral Symposium are only some of the activities funded by the Grant County Rolling Stones from money raised by the annual Gem and Mineral Show.
