Video: New Mexico native thanks retiring NBA star for college scholarship

New Mexico

A New Mexico lawyer is featured in a national ad bidding farewell to NBA star Dwayne Wade. 

Recently, Budweiser selected five non-athletes whose lives he’s touched. 

In 2010, Pojoaque native Tamara Johnson was selected for a full scholarship from the Miami Heat star to his alma mater, Marquette University. 

In the ad, she trades him her cap and gown, and thanks him for his donation. She says it was an incredible opportunity. 

“It was amazing to meet all the other people who participated in the commercial. They all had such different stories and all of their stories were just so touching, and it showed just how much Wade has done for others,” Tamara Johnson said.
