We want to stay in touch!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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: Amy Saz
ENMU-Roswell Graduate, 2014; Cornell University Graduate, 2016 & 2017
Amy Saz was born in San Francisco, raised in El Salvador, attended high school in Las Cruces, and graduated from ENMU-Roswell in 2014 with an Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration. Amy is also now a graduate of Cornell University in New York. She completed a bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Labor Relations in 2016 and received Master of Public Administration degree in 2017. While at Cornell, she worked as a Research Assistant with the Cornell Farmworker Program in the Industrial and Labor Relations School. In the summer of 2017, she travelled to El Salvador as part of a cultural exchange program for Salvadoran students who study abroad and/or have Salvadoran parents.
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.”
Success Story: Mark Kleinsteuber
ENMU-Roswell Graduate, 1985
Meet Mark Kleinsteuber, a 1985 ENMU-Roswell graduate from Hobbs, NM. The son of an Electrical Engineer, Mark graduated from Hobbs HS and went to work in the oilfield. When the oilfield started to decline in 1984, Mark began searching for a college offering an electrical program. ENMU-Roswell was the only college in New Mexico at the time offering the program he was seeking. He started in the fall of 1984 and graduated in December of 1985. While attending ENMU-Roswell, Mark worked the midnight shift at Allsup’s and later worked at PS West. After graduation, Mark moved to Houston and went to work for ADT. He spent 10 years with ADT before joining an infrastructure security company – CH2M. This job allowed Mark to work around the world. He spent a lot of time in Dublin, Ireland and Genoa, Italy – the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. While Mark enjoyed seeing many different parts of the world it was tough to be away from his family for such long periods of time. He decided to return to Hobbs and started his company Klein Security & Safety in 2004. The company has offices in Hobbs, Odessa and College Station, Texas. They have 105 employees and are currently contracted with both the Roswell Independent School District and ENMU-Roswell.
Mark credits retired faculty member, Mike Juliana, and the ENMU-Roswell Electrical Technology program with getting him started on his road to success.
