The Associate in Applied Science in Applied Technologies Degree Program at the UNM-Los Alamos received a healthy capital injection from Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) Monday evening.“I hope this is the first of many donations,” LANS official Joe Scarpino told UNM-LA Executive Director Cedric Page.Page explained that over the last several months, the college had communicated their needs to LANS, which resulted in the evening’s contribution to their degree program.“We have to acknowledge the staff and the work they put in on the degree program,” he said.The check is one of several LANS plans to donate this year. Some $3 million will be contributed to education and community development projects, Scarpino said, adding that in the past, it was difficult for Los Alamos National Laboratory to contribute in this way because of government issues.Johnnie Martinez, executive director of the Community Programs Office for Los Alamos National Laboratory, summed up the event saying, “This is not a grant; it’s an investment in the future of Los Alamos.”In other business, Page introduced new Campus Resources Director Lisa Clough, from the North Carolina State University System. She started working at UNM-LA two weeks ago.Under capital projects and planning, Page said the new maintenance building project is moving forward.
