There were approximately 60 people in attendance.
Dr. Aaron Kennedy (bottom left), Vice President of Student Affairs at Mesalands, gave the welcome and introduced Senator Udall.
In a press release, Senator Udall stated: “My goal with these Rural Resource Roadshows is to make sure communities know what opportunities are available from federal agencies, strategies for successfully applying for them, and how to leverage those resources to boost the economy in New Mexico’s rural communities.”
