Convocation Celebrates 'My CNM, Your CNM, Our CNM'

Central New Mexico Community College represents a lot of different things to a lot of different people. In other words, there's "My CNM, Your CNM and Our CNM." The college will celebrate that theme and all the uplifting ways CNM employees contribute to the college's mission on Sept. 17 during the 2010 CNM Convocation.

Convocation
Central New Mexico Community College represents a lot of different things to a lot of different people. In other words, there's "My CNM, Your CNM and Our CNM." The college will celebrate that theme and all the uplifting ways CNM employees contribute to the college's mission on Sept. 17 during the 2010 CNM Convocation.

This year, the entire Convocation will take place outside on Main Campus in the area between Jeannette Stromberg Hall and the new Student Resource Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. No classes will be held during that time, except for a limited number of Friday-only classes. 

CNM President Kathie Winograd, New Mexico Secretary of Higher Education Viola Florez and Judge William Platero, a former CNM student and current Navajo Nation District Court Judge, will speak at the event.

Gene Grant, Albuquerque journalist and host of KNME's In Focus program, will also moderate a roundtable discussion with President Winograd, Secretary Florez and two soon to be named faculty members. The discussion will center on the challenges facing higher education in New Mexico and the role of CNM as the state's leading community college.

Faculty member Tom Darling will be the master of ceremonies.

This year's format for Convocation will be much different than last year's. Dropping off recyclable materials will not be part of this year's program.

Lunch will once again be provided by the CNM Foundation, but the picnic will take place on the lawn area to the north of the Student Resource Center.

All buildings and offices will be closed and locked from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 17, except for buildings that will be holding Friday-only classes. Those Friday-only classes will be held in a consolidated number of buildings and faculty teaching those courses will be informed of any location changes. More details on the event will be coming soon.
