ENMU Lawyer Returns from Tour of Duty in Afghanistan
story by Jacob Caffrey
Chris Holland, an ENMU alumnus, has recently returned from an overseas tour of duty with the New Mexico National Guard. Holland has served in Iraq, the Persian Gulf, and most recently, Afghanistan.
Holland, a Lt. Col. in the New Mexico Army National Guard, is also ENMU’s lawyer. As an ENMU alumnus, Chris began representing ENMU in 1996, and says that he is “proud to represent his alma mater.”
Chris is a native of Hobbs, and came to ENMU on an ROTC scholarship. Holland says that his time at ENMU as a student was challenging but he really enjoyed it. He says that he got a lot out of ENMU, including a great education.
|Lt. Col. Chris Holland|
After serving in the U.S. Army for nine years and serving in Desert Storm, Holland went back to school at the University of New Mexico School of Law.

Samoei and Elizondo Named Greatest Greyhound and Greatest Zia for 2011-12
PORTALES, N.M. —Eastern New Mexico University Athletic Director Dr. Jeff Geiser has announced that Isaiah Samoei (Jr., Eldoret, Kenya/Iowa Western CC) and Andrea Elizondo (R-Jr., El Paso, Texas/Eastwood HS) have been selected as the Greatest Greyhound and Greatest Zia for the 2011-12 year. Each coach nominates one athlete from their team for the award, and the ENMU athletic staff votes to determine the top male and female athlete of the year.
Samoei was Eastern’s top performer in both cross country and track & field and was the Hounds’ first track All-American since the program joined the NCAA in the 1980’s. In cross country, he became Eastern’s first Lone Star Conference champion, pacing the Greyhounds to the conference title as a team. Samoei went on to lead Eastern to a NCAA Division II South Central title, with a second-place finish. He earned USTFCCCA All-South Central Region, Lone Star Conference Newcomer of the Year and All-LSC honors, for his efforts and was chosen as LSC Runner of the Week on October 16th. Samoei established a new Greyhound record time of 31:05.30 in the 10k at the regional championships. In track & field, he became Eastern’s first automatic qualifier for any track & field event, with a Greyhound record time in the 10,000-meter run at Mt. Sac Relays. Samoei finished eighth in the NCAA Division II National Championships, to become ENMU’s second All-American at the NCAA level and first overall since the 1977 season. He won the Lone Star Conference championship in the 5,000m and 10,000m runs, was the conference runner-up in the 1,500m run, LSC Male Track Athlete of the Week (April 25, May 2).
Elizondo scored in the Zias LSC tournament-clinching win over Incarnate Word, and again at West Texas A&M. She also had an assist in the win over UIW. Elizondo was a catalyst at the midfield position, which helped the Zias post the best save percentage and goals against average in team history. The 2011 season marked the first sub-1.00 goals against average in team history and the second time the Zias qualified for the Lone Star Conference tournament. – Adam Pitterman

Support for "Little Bear" Fire –
Hello United Way Friends,
It has been excruciating watching the devastating footage of charred ruined homes and blazing mountainsides in Ruidoso. Over 250 structures have been lost, many of them permanent homes for families and individuals.
Emergency responders are on the scene and American Red Cross is providing shelters, food, etc while waiting for the chance to assess the longterm effects on families. In this time before all the details are known, Ruidoso is preparing for the Longterm recovery of its community. FEMA is sending in a team to help Ruidoso Community Leaders put a organization in place for Longterm recovery (which will take months or even years) for the families involved.
If you would like to support this RECOVERY from distraught homelessness, please consider making a MONETARY donation to the Response Organization (Red Cross, etc) of your choice or if you wish you may give through United Way of Eastern New Mexico. A "Little Bear Fire Donation" through United Way will be forwarded 100% to the Longterm Recovery Committee in Ruidoso once it is established.
In 2007, donations from all over the state poured into Clovis to help our Tornado Victims. Those precious gifts allowed our local recovery committee to help over 100 families regain their footing with over 18 months of effort and coordination. One amazing way we can honor those givers is to "pay it forward" to our neighbors in Ruidoso.
Your DOLLARS are the best gift because items that get sent sometimes swamp the community with stuff that may or may not be needed at the moment. Your DOLLARS always provide the affected community with the power to procure the supplies they need most.
In addition, your DOLLARS given to a longterm recovery organization established in that community will allow the community to serve families after all the other resources have come up short.
Please GIVE today to help Ruidoso families regain their homes and their hope.
Executive Director UWEN
Feel free to submit a compliment about someone to firstname.lastname@example.org.

How to Perform CPR – When an adult suddenly collapses, call 9-1-1 and immediately begin chest compressions. Do so by placing both hands in the center of the chest, on top of the other, and push hard and fast until help arrives. Learn more at http://www.handsonlycpr.org.
Friendly Tips About Monday Memo Style – For anyone who thinks that we arbitrarily change the way that they submit items to the Monday Memo, we are simply using (mostly) Associated Press style.
We do try to make items friendlier by using Dr. for professors (which the AP does not) and first names or Mr. or Ms. with last names for others on second reference – versus AP style of using last names without Dr., Mr., Ms. or Mrs.
We always capitalize and spell out days of the week: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
We spell out March, April, May, June and July. We abbreviate Jan., Feb., Aug., Sept., Oct., Nov. and Dec. (We do spell out all months in headlines.)
We write times as 6:30 a.m. or 7 p.m. – not as 6:30 am or 7:00pm.
We write dates as March 3, 2011, or Sept. 10, 2011, – not as Mar. 3rd, 2011 or September 10th 2011.
We do not capitalize majors: anthropology – not Anthropology (unless the word would normally be capitalized: English, Spanish).
We use professor of music – not Professor of Music.
We do not capitalize fall semester or spring semester.
We use "and" instead of "&" – spring and fall, not Spring & Fall.
We do capitalize formal names of departments or colleges – Counseling and Career Services, College of Business, Department of Communication (but not communication department).
We also go easy on exclamation points – if you win the lottery, it might be worth three !!!
We never capitalize every letter in a word – FIRST FOOTBALL GAME SATURDAY NIGHT!!! (unless it's the correct spelling for a company, restaurant, etc. – ECEL, TGIF).
We are not trying to offend anyone by editing their copy – just following guidelines.
This is just a friendly explanation.
