ENMU Student Gets Book Published
(from Quay County Sun)

Former Tucumcari High School student Max Holman published his first book in April and is currently working on the second of his mutli-trilogy series.

“Writing the book was the easy part. Getting published was the painstaking process,” Holman said.

Holman’s first book, “The Chronicles of White Raven and the Book of Vanderbolt: The World Of Mage” was the development of role-playing when he was 9-years-old.

“The entire books series is based off of my role playing,” Holman said.

Holman said he first began writing down his story in the form of script when his brother refused to play along.

“He was impossible,” Holman said. “So I wrote out a script for my brother, Mat Holman, to follow. There were a few times I had to hit him over the head with a wooden sword to get him to go along.”

Holman said after he had written a few scripts, he did not like the way the characters were developing.

“When I was 13, I began working on the plot, which is what took the longest time,” Holman said. “After the plot, I began to develop the characters and their origins.”

Holman said the first book is written from a 13-year-old’s point of view, and that some of the humor will reflect that.

“Some people may be wondering how the main character, Alan Vanderbolt, came from,” Holman said. “My mom actually helped me develop that name. I wanted something like Van Helsing so she suggested ‘Vander’ and told me to add something to the end. Being as creative as I was at 13, I came up with Vanderbolt.”

Holman did not want to give away the plot of the book, but he agreed to give the gist of how the story began. The story is set in the future and there are three worlds: The non-magical, alchemist and the Mage, which were split during the “Second Alchemy Wars.” Alan Vanderbolt is a typical teen with no real complaints. He is part of a good family with a mom, dad and cat. He is aware of his potential of becoming a “mage,” or magician, as he is set to enter the Eagle Academy, a school for mages.

Holman said Alan’s world begins to change when his parents are called away for the death of a family member. The events that follow set the course of Alan’s adventures to come.

“There were a lot of influences which helped me to write this book, though I wanted it to be my own story and not follow the typical storylines as others have in the past,” Holman said. “The battles are intense and there is no set black-and-white storyline. Everyone who reads the book will be able to relate and choose their own faction from the story.”

Holman, 19, said he is currently enrolled as an English major at Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. He said he is going to enroll in summer classes to work on short-story writing.

“The Chronicles of White Raven and the Book of Vanderbolt: The World Of Mage” is available from Xlibris Corporation in hardcover, softcover and E-book editions at

Student SPANs for Summer

To All Student Employee Supervisors:

In an effort to simplify the fiscal year end and budget reconciliation for everyone, the Financial Aid office is handling Student Employment differently this summer. Below is an explanation of how student employment for summer will work:

First and foremost, in order for a student to work at all during the summer, May 21 forward, they must have both a 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 FAFSA on file; this will be visible on the SPAN when you query your student employees. If both FAFSAs are not on file the SPAN will not generate. If a student is not able to complete a FAFSA or will not work past July 2, please contact Kelly Mitchell.

Summer SPANS will be available online beginning May 16.

When a student is queried on the Summer SPAN, supervisors will see one of two things: Summer Employment or Student Hire.

Summer Employment – Students who have had a work-study award for the 2010-2011 award year will be coded as Summer Employment for May 21-July 1. This will not affect your student employment line items in your department budgets.

Student Hire – Student Hire will function as normal, except that students who already have a student hire SPAN will continue on that SPAN through July 1, and will require a new SPAN to work from July 2 forward.

At the end of June new SPANs will be submitted for all students for the new year and Fall 2011 semester. These SPANs will begin July 2, and will function the same as other years. SPANs will show work-study if the student is eligible and awarded or student hire. New Student Hire SPANs will be good through the end of the new fiscal year, and work-study SPANs will end around the same time as the spring 2012 semester in May.

This information will be presented at the Frontline meeting on May 18 in the Sandia Room of the CUB. This process will be demonstrated and questions will be answered.

If you are unable to attend the Frontline meeting, you can contact Brent Small or Kelly Mitchell at or

KENW-TV Needs Volunteers for Summer Membership Drive – KENW-TV’s Summerfest 2011 Membership Drive is coming in June.  Support KENW-TV by volunteering your time to answer telephones for a few hours during June 4-12.

For more information, call Rena Garrett at 562.2112 or email

Sign Up for Summer Lifelong Wellness – Summer is almost here, and we encourage you to join our Lifelong Wellness program.  Remember, you may use your tuition waiver for this program even if you are enrolled in another class.

To enroll for summer, simply send an e-mail to cathy.hess@enmu.ed. and tell us which option you would like.

     1-credit (You need to accumulate 16 half-hour activity sessions.)

     2-credits (You need to accumulate 32 half-hour activity sessions.)

If you would like to participate in an existing physical activity class, please tell Ms. Hess the class and meeting days/times, and she will save a spot for you.

Software Clearinghouse Has New Titles – The New Mexico Educational Software Clearinghouse is located in room 145 at the back of the Golden Library behind periodicals. It provides the ability for in-service and out-service educators to preview software designed for the K-12 student prior to purchase. Since the Clearinghouse is inside of the Golden Library items are checked out through the library.

A Busy Day is a British reading program published by Grenada Learning Ltd. The learning objective of the software is to help children who are visual learners experience reading success even before the skills of phonological awareness are fully developed.
Installation is easy. Just wait for autorun to provide the option to double click an installation icon, and follow the on screen instructions. If any problems happen, just check the manual, it is quite helpful in helping with installation issues. Inexperienced computer users should not have any issues.
The manual is what one would expect from a reading program, detailed and self promoting. The manual is very readable and helps use the program through guiding the user through the activities. It also instructs the educator how to configure the program for ultimate student accessibility. The software does not explicitly give guidance on how to use the program in the classroom.
This program accomplishes its goals by relating to visual learners. The activities include reading the eBook A Busy Day, Jumble, Spot the Difference, Find the Word, and Match the Word. The software is interactive not only for the user but also the educator. For the student all activities encourage interaction through the very nature of the activities, and for the educator the activities and story are both completely customizable. There is reinforcement for completing and answering activities correctly. Records on all student users are also kept. The appropriate age group for this software is Kindergarten and up. This program is better than some others as a reading tool for visual learners, and has more features, although perhaps some are more commercial.  

For assistance, contact Tyson Brown at 562.2646 or visit him at Room 146 in Golden Library.    

KENW Online Auction Runs June 1-10 – The 2011 KENW Online Auction begins June 1 and runs through June 10.

The current ENMU student parking decals are scheduled to expire on Wednesday, June 1.  The new ENMU student parking decals have arrived and are available for distribution.  These new student parking decals are scheduled to expire on June 1, 2012.

If you will be attending ENMU in the Fall and want to get a step ahead of the game you can register your vehicle immediately.  The current student parking decals scheduled to expire on June 1 will still be honored until that date has passed.  Parking enforcement at the university for violations associated with failure to register or improper display of registration will cease on Monday, May 9 and will not resume until Friday, September 23. 

This will give students a reprieve through the summer and a one month grace period to get their vehicles registered after the first day of classes for the Fall 2011 semester.  The current faculty and staff parking decals are not scheduled to expire until June 1, 2012. 

We also wanted to remind the campus community to notify the University Police Department in advance if you are expecting visitors to campus so they may brief staff on such activity.  In the event a visitor is issued a citation for "Failure to Register" they can fill out the brief visitor form on the back side of their citation and mail it in or drop it by the University Police Department.  These citations are automatically voided for visitors and this applies only for "Failure to Register" violations.

For more information, call the University Police Department at 562.2392.
