First Pima Graduate to Attend ENMU Commencement
Story by Robin Haislett
Communication Services

“I love to teach.  I'm very passionate and like to be the students’ cheerleader, support, and teach them a skill that will change their lives like it did mine,” - Regina Santaniello-Escandon

Regina Santaniello-Escandon will walk across the stage this May with her bachelor’s in occupational education, specializing in welding technology.

What makes her educational journey unique is that she is the first student to graduate from the degree completion program created between Eastern New Mexico University in Portales and Pima Community College in Tucson, Ariz.

The partnership between ENMU and PCC allows for students graduating from two-year programs to have their credits accepted by ENMU towards four-year bachelor’s degrees. Dr. Thomas Toglia, assistant professor and advisor to the professional technical education program, explains that the ENMU administration cultivated a relationship and visited Pima often to be sure “it was seamless with no roadblocks to get students to Eastern.”

According to Dr. Toglia, Ms. Santaniello-Escandon has been a model student and has completed the remaining 35-40 credit hours all within the two-year timeframe. “She’s been a perfect student,” says Toglia. “ She’s very conscientious and jumped right on this in the fall of 2009.”

Ms. Santaniello-Escandon says the degree completion program in occupational education was exactly what she was looking for. After her lead faculty shared the brochure with her, she knew the program would be a perfect fit. “I have always wanted to be a teacher and I love to weld, so this degree was exactly what I wanted,” says the assistant welding instructor at PCC.  “I am a skilled welder and teaching students tricks of the trade and watch them make a beautiful bead and watch their eyes light up and all that intimidation disappear!”

Ronda Hutcherson, transfer and part-time student specialist, reiterates Ms. Santaniello-Escandon’s abilities. “She is self-motivated, which is needed to be an online student. She knows what she has to do and she does it.”

With her degree, Ms. Santaniello-Escandon will no longer be only an assistant to her instructors, but will be able toteach her own classes. “I love to teach.  I'm very passionate and like to be the students’ cheerleader, support, and teach them a skill that will change their lives like it did mine,” says Ms. Santaniello-Escandon. 

Her path to ENMU began with the music industry. “I actually went to SUNY (State University of New York) Purchase for music production and performed spoken word all over New York, but realized the music industry wasn’t for me,” says Ms. Santaniello-Escandon. After moving to Tuscon in 2001, she became pregnant with her son. While working as a table busser, a co-worker said that she welded on the side to make extra money. This inspired Ms. Santaniello-Escandon to give it a try and began attending Pima for welding.

Every student has his or her own unique situation while completing their degree, but Ms. Santaniello-Escandon overcame many strains on her time. She was a single mother of an eight-year-old boy with plenty of extracurricular activities. Her single motherhood is past tense because while working full-time, caring for a family and working on her degree, she married and gave birth to her second child.

Being the first student through a new program, there are bound to be some bugs to be worked out, but the new mother and newlywed says, “Any little thing was fixed immediately by Ronda and Dr. Toglia. All I had to do was drop an email and within a day it was remedied.”

Dr. Toglia is extremely pleased with Ms. Santaniello-Escandon’s performance in – and out of – the program. “She is exactly what we are trying to develop there,” says Dr. Toglia. “She’s our best advertisement out there.”

The assistant welder at PCC is a stong advocate for the degree completion partnership for her fellow students. “I give a lot of tours, career days, and answer a lot of questions for prospective students and always push academic as well as welding so they can move up in life if the opportunity arises like it did for me.”

Ms. Santaniello-Escandon is not letting her educational journey end now; she will return in the fall for an online masters in the same program. “I guess we didn’t scare her off,” laughs Dr. Toglia. “ She’s back for another advanced degree and that’s wonderful.”

Dr. Toglia and Ms. Hutcherson affirm that more partnerships for degree completion will be sought after establishing an even more solid reputation with PCC.

Ms. Hutcherson believes that “the partnership benefits PIMA students by allowing them to have another choice with good online programs and a low tuition where they can earn a four-year degree.

This will create even more opportunities for students to have their educational goals become reality as ENMU reaches out and, as Dr. Toglia says, “rolls out the welcome mat and say ‘how can we help you?’”

Retiring Human Resource Director Will Miss Friends:
Wants to Pursue Artistic Side
story by Wendel Sloan; photo by Robin Haislett
Communication Services

"My husband is trying to convince me that if I prepare well enough, I won't cry – but I don't buy that for a minute."Elaine Ennis

After a career that begin at Eastern on Aug. 2, 1982, Elaine Ennis, director of Human Resources, is retiring on July 1.

In her current position since 2007, Elaine is in charge of employee staffing and recruitment, compensation and classifications, payroll, fringe benefits, interpretation of and compliance with personnel policies and both state and federal personnel laws.

Her employment history at ENMU includes: Aug. 2, 1982, Payroll Receptionist/Typist; May 2, 1983, Payroll Clerk (resigned from ENMU January 13, 1984); July 3, 1985, Personnel Temp Secretary; Aug. 26, 1985, Payroll Accounting Clerk; July 1, 1990, Payroll Accountant Trainee (1st phase of an educational development plan); Dec. 15, 1990, Payroll Generalist Trainee (2nd phase of the educational development plan); Dec. 15, 1993, Payroll Generalist (Accountant I) (final phase of the educational development plan); March 20, 1995, Payroll Accountant II; Aug. 11, 2001; Payroll Manager (Accountant III); and April 1, 2007, Director of Human Resources.

"I have enjoyed working with ENMU employees more than any other aspect of my career," says Elaine.  "Working with the employees is one of the main reasons leaving ENMU will be difficult."
 
She says that the biggest challenges have been counseling employees or their families and trying to make sure they have the best benefits available during times of crisis.  "It is sometimes difficult to separate myself emotionally."
 
Born in Lawton, Okla., Elaine moved to Sudan, Texas, as a three-year-old.  "I have always considered myself a Texan," she says proudly.

She was raised with four sisters and a brother. 

"We lived on a farm during a time when things were much simpler.  I recognize that it sounds cliché, but it is true.  When I was small, we rarely even went to town except to attend church or to shop," she remembers.

Elaine graduated from Sudan High School with a "large" class of 23 students. 

"During my teenage years football and women's basketball reigned supreme for entertainment during their seasons, and riding around or gathering on the church parking lot entertained us during off-seasons," she reminisces. 

Elaine moved to Portales two years after high school to enroll at ENMU.  She left Eastern after her freshman year and, after a few years, returned as a full-time ENMU employee.  Several years after that, she resumed her education on a part-time basis and completed a BBA with an emphasis in economics.  A few years later she returned to school and became certified as a K-8 elementary teacher.   
 
After retiring, she hopes to be in an elementary classroom in some capacity.
 
 She says that faith and her family give her life the most meaning.

"I've always hoped to pursue my artistic side when I retire," says Elaine.  "I would love to take painting, photography and even piano classes.  I also love to travel and Ron, my husband, and I hope to continue with a variety of international and U.S. trips for many years to come."  
 
Elaine says that besides her many friends at Eastern, she has valued the growth opportunities that ENMU has provided for her education and professional career.

"Of course, I will miss the people the most,” she says wistfully.  “My husband is trying to convince me that if I prepare well enough, I won't cry--but I don't buy that for a minute."

Elaine says that ENMU has been her home for most of her adult life and that her years here will "provide a lifetime of special memories.  As both a retiree and alumni, I will always have special ties here and I would not want it any other way."

Sixth Annual ENMU Mud Volleyball Open Registration:
Employees Welcome to Participate
by Kaylee Peterson
Communication Services

The sixth annual Mud Volleyball tournament is set for Saturday, May 7 at 10 a.m. on the lawn behind Lincoln Hall on the Portales campus.

Mud Volleyball is hosted by ENMU Foundation and the Associated Students ENMU (ASENMU). All proceeds go to student scholarships as the event is funded through ASENMU Student Government. Justin Aguiliar, director of Mud Volleyball, says, “There will be $500 scholarships awarded at Mud Volleyball but the number is unknown until that day.”

Not only is the Mud Volleyball tournament monetarily beneficial to students, it has social benefits as well. “It gets students involved with other students they might not meet. Underclassmen and upperclassmen don’t normally see each other a lot,” explains former director Brian Campbell. Barbara James, director of Campus Life, believes it also lets students decompress before final exam week. “I think it’s a chance at the end of the year for the kids to get out, get dirty and have a lot of fun,” James adds. 

According to James, it takes a massive effort on the part of the students, ENMU Foundation and all the sponsors to make Mud Volleyball a successful event. “The volunteers are out there from about 7 a.m. in the morning the day of the event preparing the pits, and that doesn’t even touch the numerous hours put in ahead of time for arranging and preparing food, connecting with sponsors, arranging the brackets and everything else,” says James. Work on the event began with the school year and "will continue until the trophies are awarded at the end of the day of the tournament,” says James.  

Community members are greatly encouraged to register for the tournament. Anyone over the age of 18 is eligible to play on a team. “It’s a chance for community members to come out, have fun and see that we aren’t just a bunch of crazy college kids,” says Campbell. 

Business owners can sponsor the event itself and register a team to promote their business for free as a part of the sponsorship package. Since team members and their spectators don’t usually leave between matches, it’s a good opportunity for businesses to promote themselves to university students and community members,” says Campbell.

This year’s tournament offers a free lunch, concessions, t-shirts for participants who register on time, and Safe Ride is holding a booth to buy t-shirts and tank tops.

Registration for this year’s competition will end on Tuesday, May 2 at 5 p.m. in the ENMU Foundation office on S. Ave K.

ENMU Women Invited to Participate in Habitat for Humanity's National Women Build Week

All ENMU female employees and students are invited to participate in Habitat for Humanity's National Women Build Week on Saturday, April 30 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a housing project for a low-income family at 310 East Kaywood in Portales.

Construction or home improvement experience is not necessary.

Sponsored by Lowe’s, thousands of women across the country will join together for National Women Build Week on April 30 – May 8. Crews of female volunteers will raise their hammers at Habitat for Humanity construction sites across the country.

The Mother’s Day timeframe was selected for its significance to many volunteers. Families with children make up a staggering number of those in need of adequate housing. More than 12 million children – one in six – live in poverty housing in the United States alone.
To date, female volunteers have built more than 1,800 Habitat houses nationwide during National Women Build Week.

Locally, Habitat for Humanity of Roosevelt and Curry Counties has had one Women Build event at their most recently completed Clovis house.

National Women Build Week challenges women to devote at least one day in the effort to help eliminate poverty housing. The event, now in its fourth year, has drawn more than 20,000 female volunteers from all 50 states.

For more information, contact Joyce Davis at 575.309.5844, or email director@habitatrcc.com.

ENMU Brass Choir Concert Set for April 26
by Robin Haislett
Communication Services

Eastern New Mexico University will host the Brass Choir Concert at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26 in Buchanan Hall in the Music Building on the Portales campus. 

The selections include "Procession of the Nobles" from the opera "Mlada" by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov, "Allegretto" from "Symphony No. 7 by Ludwig van Beethoven, "Berceuse and Finale" from the "Firebird" by Igor Stravinsky, and "March" from "1941" by John Williams.

Michael Ellzey, the conductor, chose the pieces because "I feel it is important to expose our students to as much variety of music as I can.  We do not have an orchestra at Eastern, so I try and pull as much repertoire from other works as I can."

According to the assistant professor of trumpet, "March"  from the movie 1941 has surfaced as a student favorite. "A year ago I was introduced to it.  It was composed by John Williams, the retired conductor of the famous Boston Pops."  

The mountain and forest enthusiast says it is no easy task to create a quality program with a group who meets for only a few hours once a week. "The students step up and learn their parts; hopefully, the concert will be an enjoyable one," says Ellzey.

Ellzey says " it will truly be an evening of music no one will want to miss" with the ensemble, selection of pieces and the newly renovated performance hall.

The event is free and open to the public. 

For more information, contact Kathi Fraze at 562.2377.

ENMU Hosting Children’s Theater Performance on May 5
Story by Kaylee Peterson and Photos by Robin Haislett
Communication Services


Eastern New Mexico University will host the children’s theater performance “The H.O.W.L.S. Detective Agency  – Helping Out With Large Situations” at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 5 in the Studio Theater in the University Theater Center on the Portales Campus.

The ENMU students helping in the children’s theater class, taught by Janeice Scarbrough, professor of theater, create a performance involving children when the class is taught every two years. ENMU students wrote the script and 27 children from the Portales Recreation Center are participating in this year’s production.

According to Scarbrough, the children are learning “how to work as a team, express their feelings, be empathetic to others and have fun.”

The group started working on the program on March 15 and practice for one hour on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The children have also designed their own sets for their own individual performances.

Scarbrough believes this benefits ENMU and the community of Portales. She says, “We are building an audience for ourselves; we are recruiting both creative participants and audiences.  A large portion of our kids are from the recreational center which is a terrific community endeavor.”

The performance is free and open to the public.

For more information contact the University Theatre Box Office at 575.562.2710.

Student Art Shows Set for April and May
by Robin Haislett
Communication Services

Eastern New Mexico University will display the artwork of students graduating with a bachelor of fine arts degree in four separate shows. The first show will be through Friday, April 22 with a closing reception on Friday from 5-7 p.m. and the second show will be on Sunday, April 24 – Friday, April 29 with a closing reception on that Friday from 5-7 p.m.

Two more student shows will be in May.

The students displaying their work in the first show are Dominique Corsey, majoring in animation, media arts and design, and Juan Duran and Dallas Ellsworth, majoring in graphic design.

The students in the second showing from Sunday, April 24 – Friday, April 29 are Stephanie Defranco, Chelsea Marrujo and Rhonda Headley, majoring in graphic design, and Ian Howe and Ethan Lewis, majoring in animation, media arts and design.

According to Bryan Hahn, secretary for the Department of Art, a bachelor of fine arts (BFA) degree prepares students in a more highly specialized and directed way to enter professional fields in the arts.  As a candidate for the BFA degree, individuals must complete a senior exhibition that features a current body of work that best represents the candidate’s skills and talent in their discipline.

There has been an increase in the number of people attending receptions and viewing the gallery shows as of late. Hahn attributes this to the variety of galleries and the hard work of the students who manage the gallery.

Along with the variety of the shows, there is also a variety of work within the shows. “Each of the candidates truly has a unique artistic voice and vision as young artists. Their aesthetics and how they use their preferred media also differ greatly,” says Hahn. “The work exhibited in BFA exhibitions are the academic and creative journey that each of our candidates have gone through during their time at ENMU.”

Those who attend will be treated to the evolution of artistic work, which is Hahn’s favorite aspect of the showings. “I most enjoy seeing the end product of our students’ time at ENMU. To see what work they are now producing is very humbling; the final product being on display in the gallery is exciting to experience.” 

For more information, contact Hahn at 575-562-2778.

The current ENMU student parking decals are scheduled to expire on Wednesday, June 1.  The new ENMU student parking decals have arrived and are available for distribution.  These new student parking decals are scheduled to expire on June 1, 2012.

  If you will be attending ENMU in the Fall and want to get a step ahead of the game you can register your vehicle immediately.  The current student parking decals scheduled to expire on June 1, 2011, will still be honored until that date has passed.  Parking enforcement at the university for violations associated with failure to register or improper display of registration will cease on Monday, May 9 and will not resume until Friday, September 23. 

This will give students a reprieve through the summer and a one month grace period to get their vehicles registered after the first day of classes for the Fall 2011 semester.  The current faculty and staff parking decals are not scheduled to expire until June 1, 2012. 

We also wanted to remind the campus community to notify the University Police Department in advance if you are expecting visitors to campus so they may brief staff on such activity.  In the event a visitor is issued a citation for "Failure to Register" they can fill out the brief visitor form on the back side of their citation and mail it in or drop it by the University Police Department.  These citations are automatically voided for visitors and this applies only for "Failure to Register" violations.

For more information, call the University Police Department at 562.2392.

Available for Adoption

Vicente
Age 11, Grade 4

Are you a one-of-a-kind family that can be a forever home to a one-of-a-kind child? If so, meet Vicente! He is a resilient child who will do best with a two-parent home where he can get lots of attention. Vicente is deaf and needs a family who knows American Sign Language to help him further his development. He loves to build things and enjoys arts and craft projects. He is shy at first but his sense of humor shines when his caregivers know sign language. Vicente loves to play with toys that have moving parts or super heroes. The forever family for Vicente will be a family that has structure, patience, time, commitment, and love to share.  He would do best in a home where he would be the only child.

 

 

 

Arianna: Age 3, Preschool
Victoria:  Age 8, Grade 2
Isidro: Age 8, Grade 4


This endearing sibling group would be a perfect addition to an attentive and loving family! Charming and likeable, big brother Isidro is ready to make friends. His outgoing personality and natural athleticism make him a surefire teammate for outdoor sports and activities. When he’s not on the move, he can be very artistic: in his second grade class he is quite a creative student. At school, Isidro participates in an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). Heday, he likes to unwind by playing his Spiderman video game or watching television before dinner with family. He has a big heart for family, and would love to share a supper of tacos, corn bread or enchiladas.

Middle child Victoria is outgoing like her brother and can always be found chatting up a storm! She is able to carry on conversations without reservation, even with adults. Playing with dolls or play phones is how she prefers to keep herself busy, along with drawing impressive pictures. In the second grade, Victoria is a bright student who enjoys learning and is delightful to have in the classroom.
The youngest of the group, Arianna is as easygoing and affectionate as they come. Always trying to please others, she enjoys the company of kids her own age as well as adults. Playing outside is high on her list, and when she’s tired out, you know it’s time to eat! Tacos, enchiladas and spaghetti would be her choices for a meal after an exciting day with a new forever family. Arianna is having fun in preschool and benefits from an IEP (Individualized Education Plan). Both Isidro and Victoria participate in counseling, which may need to continue following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.

Their caseworker would prefer to place the siblings with a two-parent family, possibly with a strong female role model; however, all family types will be considered. We only accept inquiries on the entire sibling group, who will be placed together. For New Mexico children, both homestudied and non-homestudied New Mexico families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.

For more information about adopting or fostering through the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department, please visit www.CYFD.org or call 1.800.432.2075.

METALES M5 MEXICAN BRASS
Called “the best thing to come out of Mexico since tequila,” Metales M5 Mexican Brass is a lot of brass, a lot of music, and a lot of fun, and they’re on a musical journey to Clovis Tuesday, May 3, 7 p.m. at Marshall Auditorium. Mexico’s leading brass quartet breaks musical genre barriers by uniting classical and world music, as well as contemporary repertoire and pops arrangements. Combining skills of fine classical chamber musicianship, audience interaction, natural showmanship and inimitable Latin American charm, the men of M5 mix the well-known with the unexpected and present a concert-concept that becomes a unique musical-theatrical performance.

Tickets are $15 General Admission, $12 for Seniors/Military/Students, and are available at the CCC Cashier Windows (769.4035), Chamber of Commerce, CAFB ITT Office, or at the door the evening of the performance (pending availability). Call 769.4956 for more information. www.clovis.edu/culturalarts.

From ENMU Graduate Rebecca Isaacs – Credit unions in New Mexico are teaming together to find a young adult “spokester” to hype the credit union movement.  It is a one-year opportunity and the finalists are chosen by popular vote via social media.  It would definitely be a resume boost for any student.  (And personally, I would love for the spokester to be an ENMU student!) 

The search is going on now, with a deadline of May 9th.  Students can visit the website at www.youngfreenm.com for more information or to submit an entry.  I would appreciate it if you could share the website with your students and help spread the word! 

Thank you in advance, and please let me know if you have any questions!  Take care,
