1988: Gattis Junior High School Student Council sponsor Pam Lockmiller and a group of students were back from a visit to the state Legislature in Santa Fe. They toured the New Mexico Capitol building, and served as pages for a day of the legislative session.

Students who participated included Becca Bonney, Charlie Crisp, Vincent Dorazio, Maria Gomez, Paul Gomez, Karen Maestas, Michelle Mondragon, Heather Nippert, Frankie Ortiz, Meschal Stamps, and Crystal Ulibarri.

1968: Members of an art class in Elida presented an exhibition of their works to a meeting of the Elida Women's Club at the club house. Mrs. Estil Cryer, leader of the art group, introduced their instructor, Mrs. Floyd Toy, who talked about the students and their creations.

Local artists who attended the meeting were Mrs. Sarah Rosenburg, Mrs. Jake McCabe, Mrs. H.C. McCowen, Ann Moorhead, Martha Jordan, Elizabeth Cryer, Mrs. Bud Taylor, Addie Swearingen and Mrs. Jesse May, Jr.

The meeting concluded with refreshments served by Mrs. Harding Burris and Mrs. G.E. Peterson, consisting of "dainty cheese sandwiches, mints, and miniature kabobs of pickles, wieners, and onions."
