On March 4th, the Student Media Solutions Student Organization traveled to Portales and Clovis. The group attended an Artists’ Reception at The Eula Mae Edwards Museum & Gallery at Clovis Community College where the work of NMSU-A Art Faculty Brian Taylor and Bryan Yancey was on display. “Stunning” and “emotional” were some of the words used to describe the sculptures and paintings.
The group also toured the College of Fine Arts at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. ENMU-Portales offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts Art Major where students may choose among the following emphases and minors: Animation, Media Arts and Design; Graphic Design, and Visual Arts. Please contact Professor John Adams (email@example.com) for more information on this exciting option.
Lesia began her service to NMSU-A in January, 1991, when she was hired to teach a keyboarding class (on typewriters-not computers!) for the program known then as Secretarial Administration but now known as Business Office Technologies (BOT). “There were no online classes then. All were face-to-face, and you really got to know your students well (maybe too well), even how many children they had and the children’s names!”
Over time, Lesia proved to be an exceptional instructor, winning the “Excellence in Teaching” award three times, 1992, 2003, and 2007. “These awards are particularly special to me because I was selected by student vote.”
Her knowledge, skills, and sincerity made her the obvious choice for the Recruiter position in 1996, and for 6 years she worked tirelessly fostering strong community connections that still exist today. While working as the college recruiter, she managed to teach two BOT classes each semester (except summers). During those 6 years many joked that she was playing “musical offices” because she had to relocate almost every year!
By 2003, Lesia’s responsibilities expanded. The recruiter position became Recruitment Coordinator, and Career Advisor and WIA Coordinator were added. With those 3 responsibilities, she still taught BOT classes. At the close of 2011, her responsibilities were realigned and she became half-time Academic Advisor in Student Services and half-time advisor in Nursing/EMS.
Lesia has been a valued employee of NMSU-A for many years and her contributions to our college growth and sustainability are without question. Her first retirement goal is to become an active “gear head” again and attend as many car shows as possible.
This quotation appears at the end of Lesia’s emails and certainly describes her well:
“You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically – to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.” (Stephen Covey)
