"Study harder, save money, and be prepared for anything." – Jacob Jones
Mr. Jacob Jones, a coordinator for Enrollment Services in the Student Academic Services Building, loves Eastern New Mexico University and Portales.
“I have visited big cities and have grown to appreciate Portales more,” said Mr. Jones.
He recruits prospective students, works with publications that are sent to these students and handles a database program. This database program stores contact information and shows items needed to be sent to prospective students.
“I love being able to meet students and families.
“With the help of this position, I am in the process of considering moving into the accounting information system field, which is more related to my degree.”
Mr. Jones is also looking at taking the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.
He started the job on Aug. 1, 2012. It was not a difficult transition because he was taught beforehand how to work with the database program.
Before being a coordinator, he was an ENMU recruiter for two years.
Mr. Jones received his bachelor’s in accounting at ENMU in 2010.
As an undergraduate, he was a President's Ambassador at ENMU.
“Accounting class in high school was intriguing and quite simple in my eyes," he said. "I found the ins and outs to be the easiest.”
His major was in biology at first, but Ms. Ira Kaye Frashier and Dr. Bill Brunsen helped him figure out what he wanted.
“I enjoy it and it is easy for me. It is important to find a job that you enjoy and for some it can take time to figure out,” said the Clovis native.
His father is a middle school teacher and coach and his mother is the library technician at Clovis Community College. He is the youngest of six children.
When Mr. Jones is not at work, he enjoys playing sports, video games, reading, and listening to music. He plays basketball, tennis, racquetball, soccer and enjoys running.
“Being a part of something bigger than myself gives my life meaning by helping students make decisions that shape their future,” he said.
His advice to his freshman self is to "study harder, save money and be prepared for anything.
“I am thankful each and every day that I have had the opportunity to have a job such as this,” said Mr. Jones.
The Importance of Knowing CPR
“We are trying to save lives.” – Mary Drabbs
A statewide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation training, Project Heart Start, was on Saturday in Greyhound Arena for the second year. This training was for people 12 and older. (It did not provide CPR certification.)
The Heart Institute and Dr. Barry Ramo want to teach others about a new form of CPR.
Dr. Mary Drabbs, Portales Project Heart Start coordinator, said,“People get nervous about breathing into someone, so they may be hesitant to try CPR.
"The most important factor is to keep blood circulating through compression-only CPR until the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) arrives.”
Volunteers worked with others by teaching them lifesaving techniques such as compression-only CPR and the Heimlich maneuver.
The steps to trying to save a life are as follows:
1.) Call 911.
2.) Have someone retrieve an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) (most buildings on campus have one).
3.) Until the AED or EMT arrives, do compression-only CPR to keep blood circulating.
“It is a community event to teach people how to take care of family and friends. We are trying to save lives,” said Dr. Drabbs.
While attending Eastern Washington University, she was a certified Red Cross instructor for two years.
“Thankfully, I have never had to use CPR.
“Every faculty member in HPE is required to be certified in CPR and I hope we never have to use it,” she said.
“Everyone should be prepared to save a life,” said Dr. Drabbs.
