There are so many of you, our former students, out there with whom we have lost touch. We would like to hear what kind of work you’re doing, if you’ve continued your education, married, landed a new job, moved, had a baby, or have other news to share. By updating our records and publishing some of this information on our web site and future publications, your fellow alumni and ENMU-Roswell can share your accomplishments and celebrate your successes. Contact Craig Collins, Foundation Coordinator, at [email protected]
For more information about leaving a legacy in terms of a gift to the college or establishing a scholarship, go to the ENMU-Roswell Foundation page.
Success Story: Tessa Fontanez, ENMU-Roswell Graduate 2015
“ENMU-R is such a wonderful community partner and a huge benefit for residents! I know the school was a blessing for my daughter and I. She graduated from ENMU-R and is working now as a graphic designer – much thanks to ENMU-R!”
-Kathy Lay,Executive Director, MainStreet Roswell
“I attended ENMU-R and graduated with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Graphic Design. The faculty were very helpful while I was attending and also after my graduation. They provided me with the skills, knowledge, and even job referrals, which opened the door for my current employment as a graphic designer. I will always be thankful for the opportunities that ENMU-R afforded me.” Tessa Fontanez
Success Story: Amy Saz
ENMU-Roswell Graduate, 2014; Cornell University Graduate, 2016 & 2017
Amy was accepted for a paid internship program, where she will work as a graduate scholar with the New York State Assembly in Albany. She will help to research and draft legislation related to her passion, which is labor relations and immigration.
Amy said the internship will give her a better understanding of politics and how legislation is formed. Eventually, she would like to work with immigrant, working class populations in government or non-profit organizations at either the state or federal level.
She said she is excited to start her first job and feels she is more competitive with a graduate degree. “I have a larger skill set now. The MPA was challenging, but I am ready to start working and giving back to the community. You never should forget where you come from. My dad was an immigrant and he had to overcome challenges. That has motivated me and I want to make my parents proud. Going to Cornell has changed my life. I want to thank my family and friends and ENMU-Roswell and Cornell for believing in me and helping me achieve my academic and professional goals.”
