This fall voters in Curry County will have the opportunity to invest in the state’s public colleges and universities without any increase to their property taxes. General Obligation Bond C (also referred to as GO Bond C) proposes a total of $139,755,000 for New Mexico’s public colleges and universities, of which $500,000 will be allocated to Clovis Community College. These funds will be used to repair aging roofing throughout the college. These voter-approved projects are estimated to create several jobs in the Clovis area, all without increasing property taxes.

Clovis Community College president Dr. Becky Rowley has been named president of the New Mexico Independent Community Colleges (NMICC). She replaces Dr. Katharine Winograd, president of Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque, as the organization’s new board president.
“I am honored to serve my peers as president of NMICC,” Rowley said. “I am excited to become more involved in the state level discussions regarding higher education policy and funding.”
NMICC is a group of nine schools consisting of Central New Mexico Community College, Clovis Community College, Luna Community College, Mesalands Community College, New Mexico Junior College, San Juan College, Santa Fe Community College, Western New Mexico University, and the New Mexico Military Institute. According to NMICC’s website, the group was formed in 2006 to support the mission of independently-governed community colleges in New Mexico. Together, the schools serve over 60,000 students in the state.
“NMICC couldn’t have a better choice for leadership with Dr. Rowley,” said CCC Board of Trustees president Terry Martin. “She has come up through the ranks and we’re proud to have someone from Clovis representing community colleges all over New Mexico.”
According to Rowley, the colleges work with the state legislature to help plan and develop the state’s college funding formula, as well as provide a unified front on such issues as General Obligation Bonds that directly benefit all NMICC’s member schools.
