Virtual field trip and a career dedicated to betterment

CIBOLA COUNTY, N.M. – March 16 began with a historic mark in New Mexico’s history. The Governor of New Mexico, along with the N.M. Public Education Department, made the decision to suspend schools for three weeks, which later turned into suspending schools for the rest of the academic year and online learning began taking center stage. This meant that all school events like sports and field trips were cancelled for the rest of the year and parents, teachers and students were going to be tasked with learning how to give instruction and teach from a distance.

Farm to food banks

LAS CRUCES, N.M. – Last week, Congresswoman Xochitl Torres Small, NM-02, cosponsored the Farmers Feeding Families Coronavirus Response Act (H.R. 6725) alongside lawmakers representing the western United States. This legislation will provide much-needed additional funding to address the mismatch between New Mexico’s hurting agriculture industry and families struggling to feed their families during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Farmers Feeding Families Coronavirus Response Act purchases goods from small and medium farmers and producers who are sitting on surplus crops and provides them to food banks and food assistance programs that are facing unprecedented demands.
