Emma and Craig were awarded a $500 scholarship each as part of a value-added benefit from Tijeras Creek's Creek Card Membership program. The scholarship is awarded to the college-bound dependents of the cardmembers. Established in 2008, the Tijeras Creek/OB Sports Scholarship program was created to provide an opportunity for children of current OB Sports-affiliated cardmembers who have enrolled in the Creek Card Membership Program (Tijeras Creek's popular money saving loyalty program) to apply for a scholarship to be utilized for college tuition. Its purpose is to encourage the attainment of higher education goals by children of OB Sports – affiliated cardmembers, based on achieving a high level of academic success during high school or college.
