audra | June 27, 2014 | Comments (0)

On Friday, June 20, at the Willie Estrada Civic Center, NMSU-A hosted the first annual Discovery Fair, a new community event that opened the doors to NMSU-A for adults and children from Alamogordo, Otero County and beyond, engaging them in free, quality hands-on experiences. The NMSU-A Discovery Fair also offered information about NMSU-A’s upcoming classes and academic programs. The Open House provided information on the college’s degree and certificate programs, and provided special workshops on admission and financial aid. Also available was information about the Pro-Active Advising program, a platform that includes additional support and a specialized orientation for those students who are attending college for the first time, plan to attend full-time, and who would like to graduate in two years.

Attendees had the opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, and current students and learn about academic support services, programs and career services, transfer opportunities, and paying for college. There were many interactive experiences and activities, including tire checks from NMSU-A Automotive Program, fingerprinting by the Alamogordo Department of Public Safety and so much more.

A Student Success Story – Jerry Kimmel

audra | June 26, 2014

“You can make it work for you if you try…this is what happens with a little determination.” Jerry Kimmel is now employed by Universal Hospital Services at GCRMC and is a successful Bio Medical technician.

Flashback: December 2008, Jerry moves his family back to Alamogordo from Austin, TX and takes a job as a civilian contractor at White Sands Missile Range. Jerry advances quickly in his position and receives many complements for his abilities and accomplishments. However, after only a few months, the civilian contract is dropped and Jerry is soon to be out of work. “…all the kudos in the world don’t put food on the table.”

Flash forward: Using the Vocational Rehabilitation GI bill program, Jerry begins working on an ET degree at NMSU-A in the spring of 2010. Discussions with instructor, Steve Holmes, leads Jerry to take on a double major, adding Bio Medical to his schedule. Completing his General Studies degree in December of 2012, Jerry goes on to earn his Bio Med degree in May of 2013 and is named one of three Outstanding Graduates.
