More than three years after construction began on New Mexico Highlands University’s Student Union Building, the school held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate its completion.
The ceremony was held on Friday and featured performances by the NMHU Mariachi Band Vaqueros de la Sierra and speeches by many involved in the project. The reception provided light refreshments, including catering by cafeteria company A’viands and samples provided by Einstein Bros., the new student center café.
