The Soy Nuevo Mexicano scholarship is a scholarship fund that was created with the belief that a good education is incredibly important, and that no matter the environment you grow up in, with hard work, dedication and commitment, everyone can have the opportunity to attend college.
Back in 2015, Severo Martinez decided that he, along with a band, wanted to do something to express their gratitude to the New Mexico community that has shown them so much support throughout the years.
They decided to host a benefit concert to begin the fundraising efforts for the scholarship fund.
This year will be the 3rd annual concert that will be held September 29th at the Ohkay Casino in Espanola, New Mexico.
All money raised from this concert will benefit students in Northern New Mexico.
