ENMU alumnus returns as presenter

PORTALES — From magician to social media mogul, an Eastern New Mexico University grad will be returning to his alma mater as a presenter.

Robert Smith, a speaker on digital communication and a former magician, will take to the stage in Buchanan Hall at 6 p.m. today with his presentation “Social Media 434.”

The presentation was originally geared toward brands and businesses to teach them “how to effectively use social media to tell stories,” according to Smith, but the focus will be slightly shifted to fit college students.

“We’re gonna be talking about using the social and digital landscape that we’re dealing with here in 2018 for the students to tell their stories and to be able to go chase their passion, build a business, get the job they want to get, that type of thing,” he said.

Man gets 10-plus years for chase

CLOVIS — A man was sentenced Wednesday to more than 10 years in prison after being convicted last year of leading police on a “high speed chase on a stolen motorcycle in October of 2016,” according to a news release from the 9th Judicial District Attorney.

Antonio Sena, 32, of Clovis, was sentenced by Judge Drew Tatum to 10 1/2 years in prison, including an enhancement of eight years due to past convictions on three felonies, said the release.
