70th Anniversary Celebration

Friends of the College,
Welcome to our 70th Anniversary Celebration.
On October 2, 2020, New Mexico State University Carlsbad celebrates 70 years of life and service to the Eddy County community.
We’re proud to tell you that we’re the first and oldest community college in our state.
And we’re excited to say now that we’ve returned to school, we thought it right to tell you of our plans to honor your college and all the terrific people who have contributed to its life of seven decades.
So, starting on Wednesday, September 2, and continuing every day for the next month, we invite you to join with us on our website and on social media to celebrate, reminisce, and experience memories, testimonials, images, artifacts, expressions of regard from well-wishers… from people, people, people.
At the culmination of our month long celebration, on October 2, 2020, we invite you to join with us in a virtual birthday party followed by a special anniversary reverse parade.
We celebrate our 70th to show our love for our community, for our time with you, and to recall our pride in accomplishment, in service, in identity, and in longevity.
70 years and counting—three score years and ten—our lifetime and adding more…
You are invited!
Dr. Mark Buckholz
Interim CAO/Provost
