Lincoln Hall Razing Begins Today

The razing of Lincoln Hall will begin today, June 6. It will take two to three months to bring down and clear the debris, with an estimated cost of $1.7 million, according to Scott Smart, vice president for Business Affairs.  Coronado Wrecking and Salvage Company of Albuquerque is bringing the building down.

Built in 1965, Lincoln Hall was a 98,289-square-feet, seven-story dormitory.

In its place an approximately $12 million, two- or three-story residence hall will be constructed, with an anticipated opening in August of 2012.  Rooms will have two beds, with each two rooms sharing a bathroom.  It will accommodate approximately 320 students, most of whom will be freshmen formerly housed in Bernalillo Hall.

Bernalillo Hall, a seven-story dormitory, will be closed at the time the new residence hall is opened.

“We are excited about the new residence hall,” said Dr. Steven Gamble, ENMU president.  “It will be a great boon for our growing enrollment and students who want to enjoy the advantages of living on campus.  It will be a first-class facility.”

Dr. Gamble said that the residence hall will be financed through funds available from a retiring bond that the University has been paying off at $300,000 per year, and the normal room rates paid by the occupants of the new residence hall.

For more information, contact Scott Smart at 562.2611.

CLAS Secretary Has Artistic, Musical Talents
story and art photos by Robin Haislett
Communication Services

When visiting Dr. Mary Ayala’s office in the Jack Williamson Liberal Arts Building, one may not realize the artistic talents of her senior secretary.

Kevin and Maggie Gardels

Maggie Gardels, senior secretary in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, displayed a portion of her artwork in Golden Library in the weeks before the spring 2011 semester ended.  Not only is she skilled in this form of art which she has been practicing since her youth, she also plays bass guitar.

Maggie says the artwork has a calming effect on her as she is creating the pieces, save for a piece with the Madonna and Jesus which she drew in pen. “It was frustrating because I couldn’t make any mistakes,” says Maggie.

She met her husband, Kevin, in a political science class and graduated with her associate’s degree from ENMU in Clovis, what is now Clovis Community College, in the 1980’s and continued her education at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque where she earned her bachelor’s in fine arts.

Maggie was attracted to the small-town atmosphere of Portales and has been at ENMU for 10 years.

Kevin recounts a story when Maggie and another art student got lost in the desert, almost got bit by wildlife and fell off a cliff into a bush. “They came back a total mess. I was so worried, but it inspired her!” laughs Kevin.

The Gardels’ talents can also be seen in the younger generation with their daughter, Savannah, and son, Jeremy, who recently starred in the ENMU production of “The Rabbit Hole.”

Kevin is thrilled with his artistic family and adds that, “Life is art. If we can learn to express it, play music in it, paint it, it makes our lives so much more beautiful.”

Two ENMU students are working as interns in Albuquerque for ENMU graduate Marc Schoder's company, Schoder Creative Services.

Erin Trimboli is from Rio Rancho and Brittney Nothstine is from Farmington.

Trimboli is scheduled for graduation in December and Nothstine is a junior.

They are getting a taste of what it's like working for a public relations and marketing firm as junior account executives, managing accounts and other responsibilities.

Nothstine tele-commutes from Farmington.

"I wanted to give ENMU students a shot as as a way of giving back to the University that gave me my degree," said Schoder.

Founded in 2008 by Schoder, Schoder Creative Services offers clients assistance with sales, computer support and training, and public and media relations.

Schoder was born in Boston, Mass., and grew up in Albuquerque.

In Memoriam

Professor Emeritus of Art Dale Hamlett passed away on May 30 in Lubbock.  He taught at ENMU for 18 years. 

His expertise extended to almost all mediums of artist expression, but especially watercolor.  He also excelled in teaching color and design, figure drawing and general drawing. 

He was featured in a Clovis News Journal online video in early May 2011 talking about his 15-year effort to draw a map of Portales in 1909 using old photos and talking to community members.  He studied art in Chicago and Albuquerque before coming to Portales. 

Many of Mr. Hamlett's paintings are displayed throughout the ENMU campus.

The Mozelle and Dale Hamlett Scholarship in Painting and Illustration was established with the ENMU Foundation in 1988.  The intent of this scholarship is to encourage students who are talented in the field of painting, illustration and fine arts.

ENMU expresses its sympathy to his family.

***

Long-time employee Ed Miller passed away on Wednesday. Mr. Miller worked at Eastern for 20 years and was chief engineer at KENW when he retired in September of 2008.

ENMU Grad Searching for Former Classmates –  I went to ENMU as a undergraduate from 1973-1977, and friends and myself are planning to meet in Portales at the end of June as a mini-reunion, but would appreciate any help in locating former classmates and friends and roomates.

I wonder if their might be some who ended staying in the area, where we might be able to have a little get together there in Portales or even on the campus.  Any chance on having capacity to getting data on the 73 or 74 Echo or even a Hard Copy?

Thanks for any assistance.

Software Clearinghouse Has New Titles – The New Mexico Educational Software Clearinghouse is located in room 145 at the back of the Golden Library behind periodicals. It provides the ability for in-service and out-service educators to preview software designed for the K-12 student prior to purchase. Since the Clearinghouse is inside of the Golden Library items are checked out through the library.

Evaluation Software is a collection of demos published by Merit. The installation is simple, just put the software into your computer’s drive and follow the on screen instructions. The software did not come with an installation manual.  The installation should not present any issues to the novice user. Installing the demos is equally as easy.

The demos provided on the disc are meant for elementary through college prep grade levels. Special Education, ESL, workplace, and GED prep demos are all also included. Each demo is only ten to thirty percent of the actual program.  Most of the demos are interactive, and give the educator or user a good introduction to the programs without displaying all of the features.

For assistance, contact Tyson Brown at 562.2646 or visit him at Room 146 in Golden Library.

ENMU Hosting Children’s Choir Camp on June 13-17
story by Robin Haislett; photo by Ronda Hutcherson
Communication Services

 

Eastern New Mexico University will host the Eastern New Mexico Children’s Choir from Monday, June 13, through Friday, June 17 with a performance for parents at noon on Friday.

The camp lasts from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. through the week and will be in the Choir Room of the Music Building on the Portales campus.

The camp is free and open to children in the third through the eighth grade. Participants can register by visiting www.enmu.edu/academics/distance-ed and searching the non-credit courses for summer 2011. Registration ends Friday, June 10.

Heather Vest, choir director, says that the main focus is to learn how to read music, learn a few songs and how to make beautiful choral sounds. “My plan is to have fun with these kids while being productive as a choir. These rehearsals are full of hard work and laughter,” says Vest.

Vest created the weeklong camp to offer the community a chance to see if the longer-term children’s choir offered in the fall would be a good fit for the children. This allows participants to sample the program without a long-term commitment.

Vest completed her bachelor's degree in music education at Butler University in 2000 and has since worked with numerous choirs in Indiana, Utah and New Mexico, with a special interest in children's choirs and elementary music education.

For more information, contact Vest at helloheather@hotmail.com or call 575.226.3216.

Thesis Defenses/Comprehensive Exams/Challenge

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 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.

Moses and Ray Available for Adoption
Moses and Ray
Moses:
Age:  14
Grade:  9th in the Fall
Ray:
Age: 8
Grade: 3rd in the Fall
Moses is a very lovable child and strives to be “good” by learning to accept limits and following rules.  He is very good with adults of all ages.  He presents a little younger than his actual age and therefore he does not act like most of his peers or have the same interests. Moses likes his personal space and does not always like to share with his little brother.  Moses requires constant supervision and would do best in a home where there are no pets.  Moses would like to be a Police Officer when he grows up.  He would also like to get married and have a family.  He would like a “tight” car and would like to build his own house.  Moses has a GREAT appetite and enjoys pizza, hamburgers and Mexican food.  He loves to ride his bike, trampoline, swim and play video games.  Moses will do very well in a two parent home that can give him time and pay attention to his needs.  He would like to be placed with his younger brother, Ray.

Raymond is a very energetic, charming and lovable little boy who would like to be placed with his brother in a permanent two parent family.  People are drawn to Ray and he has a very outgoing and charismatic personality.  He would like a family that can provide supervision, structure and boundaries for him.  Ray can be impulsive and a risk taker.  Ray has a driving personality that can turn into aggressiveness if he becomes frustrated.  However, he can be redirected and is able to express love.  Ray is in good physical health and wants to be a fireman when he grows up.  Ray attends first grade elementary school.  He does very well in smaller group settings.  He is not a picky eater.  Some of his favorite foods include pizza, hamburgers, fruit and Mexican food.  Ray loves to be active and enjoys bike riding, jumping on the trampoline, swimming and going to the park.  He also enjoys video games and playing with action figures.    Raymond is especially close to his older brother.
