Nereida Cora, a civil engineering student at the University of Texas at El Paso, and Tammy Kaber, a survey engineering student at New Mexico State University, were awarded scholarships of $2,000 each on April 7 by the El Paso Chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction.

The scholarships are from the organization's Lynne S. Burt Scholarship Fund. Burt was a 25-year member of the chapter who dedicated her efforts in the association to education. Her two daughters made a donation to the scholarship fund in her memory so that her efforts could continue.

To date, the chapter has issued more than $25,000 in scholarships to students enrolled in construction-related degree programs.
