ENMU board to consider donation


November 6, 2019

PORTALES — The Eastern New Mexico University Board of Regents on Friday will consider a $250,000 donation to go toward construction of a new presidential residence.

The 8:30 a.m. special meeting will be held at the administration building’s regents room, but conducted telephonically.

The donation would come from the ENMU Foundation Board of Directors.

The college has $650,000 in capital outlay to fund a 3,500 square foot home to replace the current home inhabited by ENMU Chancellor Jeff Elwell and his wife, Edwina Gower.

Regent Terry Othick said at Friday’s regents meeting he had asked the foundation if it would be willing to cover any overages if needed, but would understand if the foundation wasn’t willing to write a check.

The current house, listed at 1600 W. Cherry St., was acquired by the university in the 1960s.
