1-..., X Y ,,, i M - J l New Mexico Junior College is a unique development in education. The junior college came into existence july 1, 1965. The establishment ofthe school culminated more than twelve years of effort from the people ofLea County, New Mexico. With the passage and enactment of the 1963 junior College Act by the New Mexico Legislature, the people of Lea County began to immediately carry out the pro- visions of the legislation. This action provided an unusual and unique experience for the people of New Mexico. It gave them the opportunity to voluntarily tax themselves to support two years of education beyond high school. October 28, 1964 saw the first election to establish a junior college district in Lea County. It was necessary, under enabling legislation, for each of the five districts within the junior college district to approve the school by at least 15 per cent majority. On januaiy 20, 1965-in a second election-Hobbs, Lovington, Eunice, and Tatum overwhelmingly approved the creation of New Mexico junior College. The beautifully landscaped college is located on a 252 acre campus three miles northwest ofllobbs, New Mexico and Sixteen miles southeast ofLovington, New Mexico on state highway 18. This first edition of the NMIC Thun- derbird has attempted to capture a year ofbuilding. V X I In 'I A . Pannell Is The First President "The New Mexico junior College President is the chief executive officer of the college board, and the administra- tive head of all divisions and departments. He may delegate responsibility for the operation of the various segments ofthe college, but he shall bc responsible to the board for the results achieved." Dr. H. C. Pannell, retired public school superintendent of Lovington, New Mexico, is the first president of the first junior college in the Land of Enchantment-Home of the Thunderbirds.

Student life had many facets. Library study, physical fitness, student newspaper, pep assemblies and finals all played important parts in campus activity.

Practicing drills on the campus, cheer group checks timing. Initiating a new gym and physical education facility, the basketball team and the cheer squad added an extra touch to school tradition.

Why? We will start again. Finished. The end. Tomorrow. But. Good Idea! Let's do it tomorrow. What has been done-or rather what has not been done? Where did we start and where did we end? We did not paint a portrait that is uniquely NMIC nor did We depict the lift of a typical New Mexican. We did not even tell a story. In short we did not publish emotions, but rather attempted to instill an impetus for emotions within each of us. NMIC's first yearbook Devotion and cooperation never seem to be fully appreciated. This book has been published only with the aid of many outstanding individuals. Mary jane Salsman was always here when we needed her most. Ruby Garza and Alice Calderon made themselves available on every Saturday that we needed them. We did not have a large staff, but they helped whenever they could. Without the leadership and capability of james E. Powell we would have never had the quality and variety so necessary for this publication. Hey! What is this? Plaudits for everybody? We found out that it is impossible to please everyone, if anyone. We tried! As for Mr. Powell-Whew! And, in conclusion, we thank each student, faculty mem- ber and campus observer for supplying the material-the spontaneous tears and the inevitable laughter-with which the total experience is obtained. Another yearbook. Another ending. But. Pam Adams Paula Davis fl " l f 3. . ,M , . - 1 . ' ..,, - ff' ff' xl: 'L H X, ff' 4 I 1 ' r D H X . if. V I s .'
