The Chipeta Chapter of the Colorado Archaeological Society, the oldest continuing chapter of the state society founded in Montrose in 1935, established the Squint and Juanita Moore Scholarship in December 2004 to honor the Moore’s.
Carlisle (Squint) Moore was a founding member of the local and state societies. The society has over 100 members and holds monthly meetings where professional archeologists give interesting programs on local as well as worldwide archaeology. In addition, the society sponsors field trips to local and distant archaeology sites throughout the year. Squint Moore skillfully led many of these trips through his extensive knowledge of ancient and historical sites. Mr. Moore received the state’s highest award for an avocational archeologist. This scholarship was created to honor Squint Moore’s lifelong interest and dedication to the field of archaeology.
The 2015 scholarship award will be $750. Please complete the application and submit by April 1, 2015 to Montrose Community Foundation, P.O. Box 3020, Montrose, CO 81402 or submit electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note “Moore Scholarship” in the subject line and include all necessary attachments in a single email.
