Today, NMSU’s Department of Family and Consumer Sciences honored Anita Cummings from Las Cruces Public Schools as the Department’s 2022 Outstanding Alumni. Anita is highly involved in the career and technical education (CTE) program at Las Cruces High School and is the lead for Educators Rising, an education pathway program that is designed to encourage and recruit students to come back to our district to become educators and give back to their community. The goal is to raise up a generation of teachers that understand the needs of our community. NMSU’s College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences hosted the Homecoming Recognition Breakfast for NMSU alumni on October 21.
