Anthony (Tony) Aguilar (not at retirement ceremony)
Tony Aguilar began his career at Eastern in May of 1990 as the motor pool mechanic. During his 21 years, Tony was usually the first person to show up for work in the morning. He opened the shop, turned on the gas pumps, and got things ready for the day. Tony began at Eastern back in the day when the campus had a motor pool, and Tony had a real challenge keeping the many vehicles running dependably and safely, but he did well.
Tony and his wife, Vicki, have one son who is in the Air Force and recently returned from a year of deployment in South Korea. Their daughter-in-law is also in the military and recently returned from deployment in Afghanistan. Tony and Vicki have one grandson, and even though the he does not live close, Tony and Vicki travel to see him as often as they can.
Through the years Tony has restored many classic cars, one of which was a 1969 Camaro Pace Car. He is enjoying his retirement and is currently restoring a 1940 Chevrolet pickup, and has a Chevrolet Nova waiting in the wings.
|Dr. David C. Batten|
Dr. David Batten has spent the last 15 years at Eastern teaching a wide variety of anthropological topics at all levels. He is an active researcher and continues to guide graduate students in their master’s thesis research. As a graduate coordinator, David has enjoyed the opportunity to get to know a great cohort of students each year as they arrived on campus.
David has been the advisor to Mu Alpha Nu, the anthropology club, since 2001. In that position, he helped bring speakers to campus for the annual Cynthia Irwin-Williams Lectureship. David also created the annual Blackwater Draw Atlatl Throw and has been responsible for its continuation each year. Also in the realm of service, he contributed to a successful legislative initiative for a forensic anthropology lab at ENMU.
Important milestones of Dr. Batten’s life include six years of skiing, dishwashing, and carpentry in Jackson Hole, Wyoming; coming in third in his age group in a series of cross-country ski races in Bozeman, Montana; and an ascent and traverse of Alaska’s Mt. McKinley in 1974. Although he will miss his students and colleagues, he looks forward to retirement. He anticipates that archaeological research, cross-country skiing, and rock climbing will be high on his “to do” list.
Bobby Brunson began working at the ENMU Bookstore in November 1988. During his 23 years there, he worked in shipping and receiving, in sales, and was promoted to floor manager. Bobby continued to work at the bookstore after it was contracted to Barnes & Noble, and he is now the textbook manager.
During his years as an Eastern employee, Bobby was honored by his peers as a recipient of the Spirit of Eastern award in 2003. He served on the Professional Senate from 2008 to 2011, and served as a member of various committees through the years. Bobby is known for his congenial personality and his desire to assist customers of the bookstore. He’s also recognized by the red and white scooter he rides to work every day.
Although he has retired from Eastern, Bobby hasn’t left the work force. He plans to continue at Barnes & Noble until his wife, Kathie, retires from Eastern. He plans to make plenty of time to ride his Harley, a step up from his red and white scooter.
Julie Cathey began working at the Child Development Center (CDC) as a college student in the late 1970’s. At that time she never considered coming back some day as the head teacher. Julie taught kindergarten for the public schools for 21 years before returning to the CDC in August of 2001. Julie taught early childhood education classes for the first seven years and has been the lab instructor every semester at the CDC since becoming head teacher. She has supervised lab, practicum, student hire, work study, and graduate students over the last eleven years, as well as teaching preschoolers.
Julie has taught many children in the Portales area over the years and it warms her heart each time she gets a hug from one of her former students. Julie is known for her strong work ethic and commitment to ENMU. This is one of the many reasons she was honored as a Spirit of Eastern recipient in 2012.
Julie still enjoys working and playing with young children and is not ready to give up that part of her teaching career. In “retirement,” she plans to help a good friend operate her home daycare here in Portales. Julie hopes that she will now have more time to spend with her parents and the rest of her family, including her dog, Buddy.
Floyd Cline (not at retirement ceremony)
Floyd Cline started to work at Eastern in March of 1995. He was hired at the Physical Plant as an electronics repair technician. Some of Floyd’s responsibilities included working on fire alarm systems, sound systems and small electronics.
Floyd was the “go- to” guy when it came to setting up sound equipment for any event in Greyhound Arena, whether it was a basketball game or commencement. Floyd was also the person who kept the recording equipment working in the Regents Room. He was always dependable and professional.
Floyd’s retirement plans include playing his guitar. His expertise is certainly missed.
Dorothy Glover started working at the Child Development Center (CDC) in August 1997 as the head cook. She enjoyed 14 years of preparing meals for the children and teachers of the center as well as the other duties involved. During Dorothy’s years of employment, the CDC was recognized with the “Marvelous Menus Award” by the Child & Adult Care Food Program.
Although Dorothy had experience taking care of her own home and family, she had very little training for this position. She used what she had learned from her mother and her own life experiences to become an efficient cook, and she was very successful. Dorothy has been active in her church serving as a Sunday School teacher, being involved in various ministries and praying for those in need.
Dorothy retired in May 2011. She now spends more time with her husband. She spent part of last year remodeling her home and is enjoying taking care of it. Dorothy also joined the Pink Ladies Auxiliary and the Kiwanis Club and spends time visiting with friends and family and helping those around her.
Bill Greenlees began working at Eastern in 1998 as a groundkeeper. Bill’s colorful past caught the attention of Doc Elder, and he asked Bill to speak to several of his history classes regarding Bill’s 23 months in Vietnam with the 1st Bravo Company of the US Army’s 7th Calvary (General George Custer’s former unit). After leaving the US Army, Bill worked for General Dynamics for 12 years building ACM’s or Advanced Cruise Missiles. After other employment, Bill found his way to Eastern.
In December of 2002 Bill was promoted to lead grounds keeper, then grounds manager in February of 2006. Bill oversaw the Grounds Department for the University until his retirement in October of 2011. During Bill’s time here at Eastern, he served on the Support Senate, serving two years as president. He also was a recipient of the Spirit of Eastern Award in 2010.
Bill’s grandchildren are a vital part of his life. Since retirement, he has spent many a day taking them fishing and hunting.
Mick Hoffman came to Eastern in June 1998 after serving 21 years in the US Air Force and working 8 years in the area. Mick was hired as a client support specialist and performed there until 2005 when he became the smart classroom coordinator, responsible for in-classroom teaching technology. He installed and maintained all of the smart classrooms and COWs (computer on wheels) on campus.
Mick received the Spirit of Eastern Award in 2000. He served on several committees and was a guest lecturer for the Astronomy classes each semester. His interests are reading, astronomy, working on computers, woodworking, riding his motorcycle and watching the Packers on TV.
Mick’s future plans are to spend quality time with his grandchildren, travel some on his motorcycle, and just lounge around for a change.
|Dr. Elwyn Carl Hulett|
Dr. Elwyn Hulett came to ENMU in 1995 as the director of the Center for Teaching Excellence, a research and public service project for the state of New Mexico. When the Center closed in 2009, Elwyn accepted a position as associate professor of Reading in the College of Education and became the advisor for the Bachelor of University Studies program, which has tripled in student numbers during his tenure. Elwyn’s commitment to ENMU won him the Spirit of Eastern award in 2009.
Elwyn has led an active life on and off campus. He is currently serving on Faculty Senate and is the co-chair of the ENMU United Way initiative. He has dedicated a part of his life to students with dyslexia, opening two private schools for dyslexic children in Arlington, TX and Madison WI, and he received the Distinguished Service Award from the Southwest Branch of the International Dyslexia Association. He has also worked internationally in Sierra Leone while writing and editing adult literacy materials. Elwyn directed teacher training in Liberia, West Africa, while co-authoring a language arts textbook series for use in all Liberian government and private schools.
Dr. Hulett and wife, Cynthia, have a “bucket” list that includes travel, family activities, home improvement projects, gardening, and continued involvement in education as retirement time permits.
|Dr. Gerardus (Gerry) Huybregts|
Dr. Gerry Huybregts came to ENMU straight out of the doctoral program at UCLA. In his 24 years at Eastern, Dr. Huybregts has had some memorable experiences. One of the first was serving as the faculty sponsor for the Muslim Student Association, there being no Muslim faculty available. Another included taking graduate and undergraduate student teams to the annual International Business Competitions.
Dr. Huybregts served on numerous committees, served as dean of the College of Business, was director of Distance Education, department chair, graduate coordinator, assessment coordinator, faculty member, and frequent diner at AEOP luncheons. He was inducted into Delta Mu Delta and Phi Kappa Phi. Dr. Huybregts has truly done it all.
What Gerry will remember the most about his tenure at ENMU is the incredible people he has been able to work with over the years. This includes the support staff, the professional staff, the faculty, and yes, even the administration.
|Dr. V. Scott Johnson|
Dr. V. Scott Johnson (Doctor J as he is known to all) came to ENMU in 1981 as an associate professor of Psychology. He was promoted to a full professorship at Eastern, in his words, “a long time ago.” Dr. Johnson has, over the years, served in multiple roles including chair of Psychology, chair of Human Subjects, Faculty Senator, graduate advisor, Curriculum Committee member, and faculty marshal for many, many commencements.
Dr. Johnson received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2011. His students have won research competitions at Eastern, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, West Texas A&M, Southwestern Psychological Association, and Psi Chi National. When asked about one special accomplishment while employed at Eastern, he related an incident that occurred quite late in a semester when a usually silent senior student raised her hand and innocently asked, “Did you know that you taught my grandmother?” With that simple question came the realization that he had, in fact, had the privilege of mentoring three generations of human services providers for his “down home” region of the world.
Dr. Johnson says he will Scuba, fish, or swim anytime he gets a chance, and he enjoys a summer home and the people in the Santa Fe National Forest. Time there with a big black dog certainly sounds inviting.
|Dr. Paul Lockman|
Dr. Paul Lockman, professor of Sociology, came to Eastern in 1984. A living example of the importance of lifelong learning, Dr. Lockman completed a M.S. in Counseling from ENMU in 1995, an Alcohol and Substance Abuse Studies program from UNM in 2000, and the Clinical Training Program in Analytical Psychotherapy at the C.G. Jung Institute of Chicago in 2008.
Dr. Lockman has been instrumental in the establishment of ENMU's vigorous program in Criminal Justice, teaching and mentoring hundreds of students throughout his career. He also works with student clients in ENMU's Counseling Center. Dr. Lockman has pursued interests in the administration of justice and as a consultant and scholar, visiting Russia, Cuba, England, Australia and other exotic locales.
Even though he is technically retired, he continues to be an active contributor to University and civic affairs by lending a willing hand and a ready smile whenever it is needed the most.
|Felipe E. Macias|
Felipe Macias has held a number of positions within the Department of Theatre and Dance, the most notable of which was as designer/technical director for productions in the department’s Mainstage and Studio seasons.

Immediately after the 2012 spring commencement, Mr. Macias will relocate to Oxford, MS to begin life with his wife, Kate, and to commence his third season with the Oxford Shakespeare Festival directing and designing a production of Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well.
|Dr. Mir Mortazavi|
Dr. Mortazavi, professor of Statistics, came to ENMU in 2000. While at ENMU he published a number of papers and gave numerous presentations to professional organizations in the area of Stochastic Programming. He served on many University committees including General Education, Undergraduate Admissions and Standards, Athletics, and Administrators Evaluation.

Bobby Brunson Zooming Off into Sunset on Harley
(But Will Return)
by Jennifer Conlee
“The people in this area are more laid back – pretty agreeable people.”
– Bobby Brunson
Bobby Brunson is highly enjoying his new Harley, which he bought upon his retirement from Eastern New Mexico University last September, and he’s looking forward to many trips with his wife, Kathie.
“We want to go to Arizona, take in the Grand Canyon,” Mr. Brunson said.
|Bobby and Kathie Brunson|
For now, until his wife retires in nine years as an Intervention Specialist in Student Success, he’s happy taking shorter trips while he continues working as the Textbook Manager at the ENMU bookstore for Barnes and Noble (instead of ENMU), a position he’s held for five years, since being promoted from floor manager in April of 2007.
Mr. Brunson moved to Portales as an eighth grader, and graduated from Portales High School. From there he joined the Navy.
“It was the tail end of the Vietnam War,” Mr. Brunson said. “After boot camp and technical school, they put me onboard the USS Enterprise. I spent four years in the Navy, and half of that time was in the West Pacific, off the coast of Vietnam.”
Mr. Brunson left the Navy on his 22nd birthday and came back to Portales, where he worked for awhile before taking advantage of the G.I. Bill and registering at ENMU in 1978.
“Initially, I was going for an art degree with a minor in business, but I dropped out in ’79, and worked as a machinist for three years,” Mr. Brunson said.
In 1982, he went back to school at ENMU, graduating with a double major in art and religion in 1985. “It was the fall of 1985 that I met my future wife,” Mr. Brunson said. They married during spring break of 1986.
From there, he worked at Southwest Canners putting in the bottling machinery. Mr. Brunson had hoped to be promoted to a truck driver within the company, but when that fell through, he purchased his own truck and worked for a year and a half as an owner/operator.
|Bobby Brunson at Retirement Ceremony
(photo by Wendel Sloan)
It was in 1988 when he turned the truck over to his father’s trucking company and came to ENMU as a stock clerk.
“I have roots here,” said Mr. Brunson, who has enjoyed his life in Portales.
Mr. Brunson said that Portales has been a nice place to raise his family. His children, now grown, are making their own way in New Mexico. His oldest, Rodger, works as a state policeman in Grants, his youngest, Ashley, is an EMT in Clovis, and his middle daughter, Megan, is preparing to graduate from ENMU and head to the University of New Mexico for graduate school.
His retirement gift to himself was his Harley, “Old Blue.”
“I’ve always wanted a motorcycle,” Mr. Brunson said. “My wife bought a Harley t-shirt for me in Memphis and made the decision for me.”
Mr. Brunson said that he’s looking forward to his upcoming road trips, but he loves his hometown.
“The people in this area are more laid back – pretty agreeable people,” he said. “That keeps this area as pleasant as it is, and you grow to appreciate the Llano Estacado for the beauty it does have.”
Two Employees Cook Up Romance at Pizza Hut
Not Just a Cheesy Love Story
story and photo by Spencer O'Keefe
“I saw her and thought she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen.”
– Ray Garcia
Have you smelled something in the air lately? It’s not the dairies. It’s not ethanol or the Alpo trucks that drive by. No, this is a sweet smell. It’s not quite rain, nor is it is fresh-cut grass. The best answer would probably come from John Paul Young. “Love is in the Air.”
This statement is no truer than with ENMU’s own, happily engaged, Ray Garcia and Cathy Hess.
|Ray Garcia and Cathy Hess|
Ray works as a locksmith with ENMU’s Physical Plant, Cathy with Sodexho on campus, but at one time these two worked at our local Pizza Hut together. Perhaps an unsuspecting place to meet the person of one’s dreams, Pizza Hut was just the right move in Ray’s life at the time. It’s because of this employment that Ray met Cathy.
Ray said with a smile, “I saw her and thought she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen.”
At first Ray was nervous to speak to Cathy on a personal level. Most would be a little cautious with asking one’s boss out for a date, and Cathy felt the same hesitation. She had been recently divorced, and dating a fellow employee didn’t seem like the best choice.
As fate would have it, Cathy asked Ray to accompany her on a business trip to Texas. Ray knew this was his chance to get to know Cathy better, and he accepted. The lonesome highways of Texas provided a great backdrop for the couple to speak on a more personal level. Ray had a plan for the trip back, too. While at their destination, Cathy attended meetings while Ray spent time looking for the perfect music for the way back to Portales: love songs.
His plan must have worked. Cathy says she later discussed Ray with her sister, and Cathy said she might not have the same feelings that Ray had towards her. Cathy recalls that her sister said, “Maybe God sent Cathy everything she needed in a package that wasn’t what she expected.”
As Cathy grew fonder of Ray, she knew they could figure out a way to overcome the taboo of a boss dating an employee. So, she asked Ray to transfer to Clovis’ Pizza Hut. Ray declined her request, but, being his manager, Cathy had Ray transferred regardless. Her integrity and sense of honor only attracted Ray more.
Now, these two love spending their weekends fishing, camping and reading with each other. Ray does the fishing, and Cathy does the reading, both while camping together around New Mexico. The couple also enjoys worshiping together.
“Ray asked if I worked Sundays. As a store manager, it was a requirement to work weekends. He asked because he wanted me to go to church with him,” says Cathy. This was not what she was expecting, but ended up being a decision that has blessed Cathy and Ray with many happy Sundays since.
On life goals together, the nature fans aspire to be married in the fall of 2012. At this point, the wedding looks like it will be a compromise between an Episcopal church wedding in New York where she is from, and a wedding somewhere that will accommodate all six of her children and 14 grandchildren, as well as his two daughters and two grandchildren, and other family. For now, just keeping the traditional, monthly family nights comprised of children, grandchildren, physical activities and great music is keeping Ray and Cathy in happy agreement.
Memories of past weddings make this couple laugh together. “Two years ago, my brother married his long-term girlfriend of 17 years! It was a bit of a shock to us, but inspired us, too, to think about tying the knot,” says Ray.
Whether it is later this year, or 17 years from now, Ray and Cathy agree that getting married and growing old together is their ultimate goal. Ray says, “Life’s too short to be unhappy,” and Cathy finishes, “and working together to be happy is a blessing.”

CDC Children Wearing Old ENMU Band Uniforms
copy and photos provided by Dawn Wolf-Tayor
ENMU alumna and graduate student Petra Gonzales (BOE, ’09) had the wonderful idea of requesting old ENMU band uniforms for use by the children who attend the ENMU Child Development Center (CDC) program.
|CDC Children Band Together|
Petra approached outgoing ENMU Alumni Coordinator Dawn Wolf-Taylor regarding a stash of old uniforms that office had. With band director Dr. Dustin Seifert’s permission, the uniforms were given to the CDC to be enjoyed during dress-up time. Dr. Seifert’s son is in the program and is also pictured.
The first picture was posted on the ENMU Alumni Association Facebook page, and garnered the following responses from alumni:
“Look like future musicians to me! –Sara Huff Hall
“I remember those uniforms! I marched in them for quite a few years.” –Donn DeVore Metler
“I am so old those uniforms are after my time at ENMU.” –Bev Sandlin
Petra, who is one of the CDC teachers as part of her graduate work at ENMU, says that the CDC students just might be future ENMU band alumni.
Join ENMU’s Facebook page for alumni at www.facebook.com/ENMUAlumni for all the latest on what’s happening with and for ENMU graduates.
