1969: A former Eastern New Mexico University student had been featured in “Personalities on Parade,” a chatty section on Army personnel in the June issue of “Army Digest.”

1st Lt. Gloria Maestas graduated from ENMU in 1968. She was serving in the Women’s Army Corps at Fort McClellan, Alabama.

The Clovis News-Journal reported Maestas was the first person to participate in a guest lecture program at the Fort McClellan elementary school.

Maestas said she used rocks and minerals to teach a science class to more than 200 students in grades one through five. Some of those rocks were “from her own collection, which she put together as a zoology and geology major at Eastern,” CN-J reported.
