New Mexico

Six leaders have been named honorary members of the Sam Steel Society, at New Mexico State University.

They are Jacob Saiz, Associated Students of NMSU president; Cristobal Eloy Roybal, Vaughn Municipal Schools superintendent; Anita Roybal, educator and school administrator; Edward "Jack'' Wallace, former district director for NMSU's Cooperative Extension Service; Dorman Brookey, former supervisor of NMSU's 4-H program; and Fernando Macias, Dona Ana County manager.

Jerry G. Schickedanz, dean and chief administrative officer for NMSU's College of Agriculture and Home Economics, presented the honorary memberships.

The society honors the memory of Sam Steel, who would have been the university's first graduate had he not been killed just months before his graduation in 1893.
