Graduate Student from Mexico Reviews Children's Books
by Shantiana White
“I was considering another university, but ENMU’s scholarship persuaded me to stay and go into counseling.” – Irma Salayandia
Irma Salayandia, a graduate student in the counseling and clinical therapy program, said “This degree is about me. It’s about self-development and self-awareness, which the counseling program emphasizes.”
Her birthplace is Chihuahua, Mexico, but she considers Roswell her hometown because she has lived there over 30 years since she was six. Ms. Salayandia has a 22-year-old son who lives in Roswell, and a 20-year-old daughter who lives in Clovis.
She plans on working with children due to “Latino children are not taught that education is important, and I want to change this aspect of education.” Recently, she has had five children book reviews published in the New Mexico Journal of Reading.
“Judy E. Laufer was my favorite author I reviewed because her books are therapeutic for children,” said Ms. Salayandia.
She reviewed Last Night I Had a Laughmare. Bedtime Adventures in Gigglyville and Where Did Papa Go? by Ms. Laufer and enjoyed how she could make something hard to deal with in life easier to cope with in these books.
Ms. Salayandia also spoke fondly of The Old Green Chair by Traudi Allen. She said, “The author manages to relate a chair to life events which can break us, but also make us stronger.”
Dr. Michael Shaughnessy picked out books for her to review at the book fair in the education department. “This was a new learning experience for me, and I thank Dr. Shaughnessy who encouraged me to take this opportunity. Now, I have more confidence if I want to write and publish reviews in the future,” said Ms. Salayandia.

Changes Made at Health Services
by Dr. Judith Haislett
Vice President for Student Affairs
Health Services has made some changes this fall. Beginning in October, Health Services will be operated by LaCasa Health.
This means no change for the students visiting Health Services, as the medical care provided by ENMU will remain the same. All services performed by our former Nurse Practitioners will be offered to students, including visits, educational materials, family planning visits and supplies, and more.
LaCasa will staff Health Services with a Nurse Practitioner, Darlene Jenkins, who is a former director of the Health Services at ENMU. She will be familiar with the services our students expect and has a proven record of delivering positive health care for students.
Services in addition to health care will be offered by our new Health Services provider. They include consultation on insurance options, educational materials, referrals for social services and expanded clinic options through their Fir Street offices.
ENMU has built Health Services with the belief that students come first. This new change in our operation of Health Services should continue that tradition and offer ENMU students consistent quality care and expanded services on campus. Until all the contracts are signed, Health Services will be staffed by our Licensed Practical Nurse, Pam Bayes. She will be able to assess presenting problems, refer for treatment, and schedule all family planning services for Fridays at the Curry Hall location.
We expect full operations to begin at Health Services no later than Oct.15.
Farewell for Don Paschke on September 20
by Kayla Paulk
Please mark your calendars to reserve Friday, Sept. 20, at 2 p.m., for a farewell party for Dr. Don Paschke at COPE (Council of Professors Emeriti). He is moving to Albuquerque.
For those of you who are local and either sing or have sung in the ENMU Choirs with Don (or any choir – church, etc.), Dr. Jason Paulk will share information soon about one or two pieces we plan to sing in honor of Don for this occasion.
|Dr. Don Paschke|
Finally, please send either an email or snail mail letter (to my attention at ENMU Station 16) for Don, to be included in a memento book we’re compiling for him. I was delighted to find nearly 70 pictures of Don’s involvement in the ENMU Choirs and ENMU Music over the past eight years.
