SILVER CITY, N.M. (AP) — The Western New Mexico University Board of Regents has extended President Joseph Shepard’s contract.
The board voted last week to extend Shepard’s tenure until 2024 and give him a raise. He also was awarded a three-month sabbatical.
Shepard’s contract was due to end in 2020.
Regent Chairwoman Janice Baca-Argabright says the board has confidence in Shepard and appreciates what he’s done for the university.
