  • Call for volunteers

    The Marine Corps’ Marine For Life program is looking for New Mexicans to serve as mentors for Marine veterans.
    As a Marine For Life mentor, volunteers can be key in helping Marine Corps veterans navigate the way ahead — whether they are Marine veterans who care about other Marines, or someone in the community wanting to help Marines succeed in civilian life.
    Marine veterans returning to the civilian community can benefit from volunteers’ life experience. As a mentor in the Marine For Life organization, they can help those who have honorably served the country in the Marine Corps and are moving on to civilian life.  Their knowledge, counsel and personal network can help a Marine veteran succeed.

    Sod sale was a big success
    The Sullivan Field sod sale was a success. The athletic department raised over $18,000 in 2-1/2 days that will be used for equipment and supplies. The money will be used for both the middle school and high school athletic programs.
    The success of the sale is due to all the volunteers, coaches and athletes who donated their time to roll and load sod on pallets. The success is also because of the community who waited patiently in line to buy the sod.  The donations that were given for the sod will help our athletic programs and the high school and middle school continue to be one of the top programs in the state.
