Highlands University President Jim Fries celebrates his first anniversary at the helm Tuesday.
The president took the post after the tumultuous tenure of former President Manny Aragon, who left Highlands with a big settlement and a threatened indictment in connection with the building of the federal courthouse in Albuquerque.
Fries (pronounced “freeze”) was interim president from 2001 to 2002 and is credited with rescuing Highlands from bankruptcy by merging academic departments, eliminating some majors and cutting some positions.
