Sending a clear message that they continue to have confidence in their president, New Mexico Highlands University regents approved a contract extension that will keep Jim Fries at Highlands’ helm through June 30, 2016.
All four regents present at Friday’s board meeting voted to approve the extension, each one heaping praise on Fries for the job he has done leading Highlands since January of 2007.
Both regents and Fries stressed that the president’s remaining time at Highlands will be spent trying to take it to the next level.
