Favorite Aggie Memory

Many great memories. Perhaps the best is the engineering student trip to Chihuahua and Los Mochis, Mexico in April of 1968. After I graduated in May of 1970, I was an active duty US Army Lieutenant for 6 years, then a master's degree in Structural Engineering (Ga Tech), and the past 41 years as a registered, practicing structural engineer. I am 73 and registered in 7 states, and I still practice (self-employed, from home) every day. It all started at NMSU.

A conservative environment got acquainted with a new way of thinking and of course, the amazing aggie basketball team coached by the legend Lou Henson what a great time to be in college.

My favorite memory of college was the birth of my son. My son was born in my junior year of college and I could not have been more grateful to have been able to attend NMSU and raise my son. My son ended up going to NMSU and so has my granddaughter. NMSU has been a home for my family for many years.

I love my Aggies!

This photo was taken after student elections, spring 1967. I had been elected ASNMSU Activities Vice President for 1967-68. We were standing on the steps of Milton Student Center where the student government offices were located. To my left is (now Congressman) Steve Pearce and to my right is Houston McKenzie, newly elected ASNMSU President. Behind me is Dennis Moon, ASNMSU Senator. I have so many wonderful memories of NMSU — good education, good times, good friends. I love my Aggies!

My favorite memories while attending NMSU involve working on the reptile and amphibian collection for the Department of Biology.
I also enjoyed going on field trips collecting reptiles and field trips involving invertebrate zoology.

3. Visiting and helping at the orphanage in Juarez Mexico with other Arnold Air Society and Angel Flight members

Harold, Maxwell, IA, '70

Favorite Aggie Memory
Despite studies and work, I managed much fun during NMSU years. Aggie Band (before Pride); helping form the Army ROTC Band in 1966; AKL Fraternity events; and, as a Geology Major in '68-'70, the late-night lab studies and field trips with Dr. King & Dr. Seager. I never got to work in my major, since I ended up with a Navy career, followed by work as a NASA contractor in Las Cruces after Navy retirement. Note: I really appreciate the annual field trips by Dr. McMillan & the Geological Sciences Dept for alums provided during Homecoming Week (re-learning area geology).

I have some great memories of my experiences at NMSU, but one of them stands out from a teaching experience in the classroom of Mr. Hardgrove (sp) in the College of Engineering. He presented a situation in Thermodynamics which caused me to ponder and relish the systemic and consistent regulation of the elements. I was fortunate to be at NMSU as Coach Henson’s Mighty Midgets did a fabulous job in basketball!

My wife and I met at NMSU in 1966 and we have been together ever since (54 years). Our favorite memory is that I was a football player and Shelia was a cheerleader. It doesn't get any better than that.

My favorite memory is my student teaching experience in Carlsbad, NM. In the Fall semester of 1970, I was among 20 other students that were the first class of student teachers from New Mexico State in Carlsbad. I found the experience to be rewarding both academically and socially. Coming from New York I thoroughly enjoyed living in the Southwest and it shaped my future as I moved to Arizona years later. I am married 45 years and have 4 children and 3 grandchildren. I am grateful for my New Mexico State experience.

FOOD RIOT: It was lunch and I was working in the cafeteria so I could get my free semester meal program when someone threw a spoonful of mashed potato's across the room, and then someone second-it, and within the next 5 minutes the place was a mess with people slipping, sliding and falling on the slippery sloshy gooey wet floors laughing all the time.
PANTY RAID: Adrenaline was flowing as we finished the last final exam for the semester. It was a hot that evening and the guys were sitting around the girls dorm stroking their guitars and playing Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Bob Dylan just to name a few when someone yelled, "We Want Panties". Pretty soon a pair was throw from the third floor and that started the chant, "More! More! More! and pretty soon panties streamed into the air like pollen from a flower in full bloom.

I so enjoyed taking all my classes as an Art Major in the Art department. The Art department was in many single-story World War 2 wood barracks behind the science buildings on the horseshoe. Prof. Ken Barrick personally taught me many techniques in drawing and painting that I was able to pass along to my Secondary school Art students. I was an Art teacher for 26 years in the Flowing Wells School District in Tucson, AZ. As an Art student and working part-time on campus, I made many good friends. As a graduate of NMSU, doors seemed to be opened because of the NMSU reputation

Met my future wife Margaret Ann in February 1968 at a dance in Milton Student Center. Took her to ROTC military ball the following weekend. Graduated in Jan 1970 with a BSIE degree. Commissioned as a 2nd Lt in Air Force after going thru 4 years of AFROTC. We attended Hmecoming 2 years ago. Great fun!

Photo was taken right after graduation from NMSU Wildlife Sciences and began working for NM Fish & Game. Fond memories of Las Cruces and the people there. This photo was taken of me bringing home Thanksgiving dinner in 1970. Had a lot of fun with my Yamaha dirt bike west of LC.

I enjoyed my time at NMSU, especially the work I did at White Sands Missile Range for NMSU's Physical Science Laboratory. Since my major included computer science studies, my time at White Sands gave me practical experience. NMSU also allowed me to obtain my degree when I had responsibilities as head of a family.

I graduated with a BSEE in 1963 and a MSEE degree in the summer of 1969. However, back then NMSU had only one graduation ceremony and it was in the the spring. Thus my MSEE degree shows a graduation date of 1970. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at NMSU and have fond memories to this day. The picture I chose is a 2016 reunion of my MSEE class. From left to right: Professor Kersting (retired), Harold Shearer, Larry Day, Arnie Schwab, and myself. Unfortunately, this picture is a little fuzzy.
