Luna Community College missed out on the chance of getting a more than $100,000 grant because it was late in asking for the money.
By 35 minutes.
For the last year, the college has handled a $110,000 grant for a program seeking to curb alcohol and tobacco use.
Recently, the college created a thick packet seeking the same amount of funds for the next year.
But Elaine Luna, Luna’s interim development director, didn’t turn in the grant until 5:35 p.m. March 22 in Santa Fe. The deadline was 5 p.m. that day.
