Thirteen school districts and charter schools that serve about 9,000 students across the state expanded in-person learning the week of March 21, according to the New Mexico Public Education Department.
The Taos Center for the Arts (TCA) announced a change in the Board of Directors, leadership, and officers late last week.
Trisha Fong, the TCA's new President of the Board, is the founder and owner of Fong Norden Design, a graphic design firm that focuses on branding and marketing. She has extensive experience in the architecture industry, where she continues to work as a consultant. She holds a degree in architecture from the University of Washington.
The first time Dave Armijo walked into the Taos Living Center in the autumn of 2017, he said it "felt like home." He started his journey to becoming the administrator for the long-term care facility in his hometown of Las Vegas, New Mexico, working first as a receptionist. He moved up the ranks to managerial positions. Along the way he found his passion for an undervalued industry that takes care of people at a stage of life when they need it most. Armijo said he realized working in a nursing home, "I could make a difference every day in the lives of the residents."

Dr. Cipry Jaramillo is a native New Mexican who attended UNM and did her residency at Southern New Mexico Family Practice in Las Cruces. So it makes sense that she attacked the pandemic head-on in the name of saving her fellow New Mexicans.
Jaramillo is a Hospitalist at Holy Cross Medical Center.
What does that mean? It means she is focused entirely on hospitalized patients; a.k.a. patients with the most severe COVID symptoms.
Since taking the reins as CEO of Holy Cross
Medical Center in 2015, Bill Patten has seen his fair share
of ups and downs, challenges, and proverbial mountains
to climb. Over the course of an illustrious, decades-long career, Patten has found there is always another difficulty to overcome, another opportunity to seize. But 2020 presented an obstacle he had never seen. In fact, it presented issues that few people had ever seen.
When Taos Academy was founded 12 years ago, the intent wasn’t to prepare for a pandemic and quarantine; but when quarantine hit, they could not have been better prepared.
