Recently, the college held a celebration of life for John w. Hernandez. Hearing about his life deeply inspired me.  He was a professor, department chair and dean of engineering at NMSU, as well as an athlete, politician, EPA appointee under Ronald Regan.  He was also the embodiment of what we call student-centric: taking student calls at all hours for homework assistance, recruiting at high schools, editing student papers, etc.  There has been some amazing talent at this college: Hernandez, Dad Jett, Ralph Goddard, Frank Bromilow.  Their attributes are something that we should strive for today.
