On Monday, Jan. 26, three individuals visited the Roundhouse in Santa Fe to receive the New Mexico Adult Education Association’s Outstanding Student of the Year Award from New Mexico Higher Education Secretary Barbara Damron.
Of these three individuals, two have decided to continue pursuing their educations at Western New Mexico University, according to WNMU’s Adult Education Services Director Debbie Maldonado.
WNMU’s Adult Education Services also experienced some changes and growth at the end of 2017.
The program entered into a new partnership with the Rainbow Housing organization. This national organization offers life assistance to those living in two different housing areas of Silver City and provides educational opportunities to low-income families in Grant County. Other services offered through this partnership include academic planning, career advice, resume writing and keyboard skills.
