merican author William A. Ward said that “feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” On behalf of The University of New Mexico, I would like to sincerely express the gratitude felt by our Lobo family for your generous support. During my year and a half at UNM, I’ve been continually inspired by the passion our community members, alumni, donors, students and many others show for the University and our extraordinary teaching, research and care — contributions benefitting New Mexico, the region and the world.

As The University for New Mexico, our faculty and staff are imparting knowledge to our students, who take that education into their communities across the state; our academic medical center is creating greater accessibility to health care, innovating new ways of treating illnesses; and our researchers are making groundbreaking discoveries, enhancing understanding of our planet and the universe.

Garnett S. Stokes

As donors, your generosity directly supports our statewide and nationwide impact, innovative research and academic achievement. Every gift, whether from individuals or corporate and foundation supporters, helps UNM’s students, faculty and staff further our mission and standing as the state’s flagship university. We are grateful to be afforded the opportunity, through your generosity, to help students achieve their educational goals and search for solutions to our most critical problems. This generosity impacts today’s students and those who will follow in their footsteps. Thank you for your committed and continual support in making The University of New Mexico our state’s preeminent university.

This year we successfully launched the UNM Grand Challenges — three research efforts focused on sustainable water resources, successful aging and substance use disorders. They unite researchers, educators, students and community members in solving problems of critical importance — working together across disciplines to develop and implement solutions that positively impact future generations.

his past fiscal year, more than $101 million was raised to benefit The University of New Mexico, its students, faculty, researchers, caregivers and programs. It is clear that the generosity of UNM’s donors, alumni, friends and community knows no bounds.

It’s not just alumni who are grateful for their interactions at UNM, it is also faculty and

When people engage with the University, they often come away with feelings of gratitude, which inspires them to give back. For example, UNM alumni Ann and Russ Rhoades are very appreciative of the education they received at UNM and have established several scholarships, including one through a planned gift to provide graduate students at the Anderson School of Management with scholarship assistance (see page 14). Adolph Sutton, an alumnus from the School of Law, recently contributed to the Peter A. Winograd Endowed Scholarship Fund in honor of former Associate Dean Winograd and the impact he had on his own life (see page 17 ).

Every gift benefits UNM and generates gratitude for your philanthropy. This gratitude, in turn, inspires others to give back now and in the future. The opportunities to contribute to help others are boundless. We thank you for expressing your gratitude toward UNM. Thank you to all of our donors — individuals, corporations and foundations — for your continued support. On behalf of UNM’s students, faculty, staff, student-athletes, coaches, caregivers, patients and their families, we thank you for your generosity.

G R ATIT U D E Presidential Scholarship Program Grows Gratitude Since the UNM Presidential Scholarship Program (PSP) began in 1976, more than 4,500 students have benefited, thanks to the generosity of people like you. Presidential Scholars receive an annual award of more than $9,000, which covers full tuition, books and fees. Scholars come from a wide range of economic and social backgrounds and ethnic groups. They come to UNM from communities in every county in New Mexico. Many of our scholars are the first in their family to attend college. One common thread among scholars’ families is that they place a high value on education and giving back to their community.

See page 21 for more information on the PSP, and read the article on page 12, which highlights two scholars and their sponsors. 8

G R A T I T U D E

Hundreds of volunteers, bike riders, walkers and runners of all ages gather for a day of celebration and dedication. Individuals and teams enter for a variety of reasons. Cancer survivors, patients, families, friends and co-workers are joined by physicians, researchers and Cancer Center staff. From the 5K run/walk to the 25-, 50- and 100-mile bike rides, it’s an upbeat event with a serious purpose.

Spirit volunteers and fans cheer and hold hand-written signs at Dreamstyle Stadium to welcome returning Challengers.

Patient care, education, community outreach and research drive the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center’s mission. Its “comprehensive” designation places it in the top 3% nationwide. As the Cancer Center strives to advance services, investigations and treatments, the Lobo Cancer Challenge, enables it to achieve greater success. The Lobo Cancer Challenge is a community-supported fundraising event initiated in 2017. It raised more than $400,000 in its first two years, with direct and immediate impact on all Cancer Center priorities. The 2019 event was held this past September, with beginning and ending festivities at UNM’s Dreamstyle Stadium. 10

Sponsors help underwrite the cost of the event, and provide in-kind donations; games and refreshments keep everyone hydrated and motivated. Since the inaugural year, Blake’s Lotaburger has been a lead sponsor. Clent Wilson’s bike rides are memorial tributes. “My father passed away from lung cancer 11 years ago,” he said. “He was only 53.” Wilson’s employer and event sponsor, SolAero Technologies Corp., organizes a team each year to commemorate two co-workers. Wilson is enthusiastic about participating. “It’s fun to be around so many likeminded people,” he said. “Everyone’s

It’s a wonderful opportunity to honor life, and hope, and maybe even give a family a chance to save a loved one someday.” Cancer Center Director and CEO Cheryl Willman, MD, leads a bike team called the Willman Cancer Fighters. “This event helps us deliver the best cancer care in the world,” she said. “We are deeply grateful to our community for their tremendous support in helping all New Mexicans facing cancer.”

runners and walkers in the Challenge stay right here,” noted Willman, “to help people in our community and our state.”  The efforts of Challengers have already generated funding for three new pilot research projects — targeting leukemia, cancers of the head and neck, and the role of HPV (human papillomavirus) in women’s cancers. Vital patient care services at the Cancer Center, including travel expenses and meals, also received additional funding. In 2017, Gallup, N.M. resident Marilee Petranovich faced a serious diagnosis, called cancer of unknown primary. In this case, a tiny percentage of cancer patients exhibit evidence of metastasis, the spread of cancer in the body, with no clear indication of where it first began. She was diagnosed at Stage 4.

Willman spearheaded the creation of the Lobo Cancer Challenge, modeled after similar events, but with some innovative twists. “Challengers,” those who raise money through their participation, can target donations into any one of 19 unique areas.

At the UNM Cancer Center, an oncology team came up with a plan to match Petranovich’s determination to fight on against her disease.

After chemotherapy and surgery, she received a cautious but joyful report that she was in remission, against all odds. By late 2018, she was strong enough to participate in a 25-mile Lobo Cancer Challenge ride, joined by her husband and daughter.

Cancer patients in remission are monitored closely, as even the most sophisticated clinical strategies can't guarantee a cure. Sadly, Petranovich lost her battle late this past summer, yet she won precious additional time with friends and family, and an extended quality of life, thanks to the exceptional care she received from her talented medical team.

Ever the optimist, even after learning that her cancer had recurred in mid-2019, Petranovich vowed to support the Lobo Cancer Challenge, whether or not she would be able to participate. “We’re training the next generation of cancer fighters, and paving the way for new treatments and cures,” she said earlier this year. She kept that promise, and became the top 2019 fundraiser. Team Petranovich rode in her memory during this past September's Challenge, a bittersweet homage to a courageous, spirited woman.

I think of how thankful I am to have this scholarship. I want to make my community proud.”

Allyssa Trujillo of Gallup, N.M. said she’s been performing and teaching dance for about a decade, appreciating the “community it brought, having a place where I belonged.” After high school, she said, “I was very motivated to leave the state, to explore something new.” She applied to 10 schools and was accepted to some. However, being offered the Presidential Scholarship opened her mind to staying, and she found that UNM’s dance program impressed her. “I knew some of the people. It seemed welcoming and accepting.” Today, she is a sophomore studying contemporary dance, minoring in business and arts leadership. “I’m so grateful that I came here and learned that New Mexico has a lot to

He’s a role model.” As such, Arroyo enjoys visiting with his former 12

One of her favorite classes was pedagogy — “using dance in different ways to influence who students are as people or in a community,” she said, “and to combat social issues.” After college, Trujillo wants to explore dance in various societies, sharing with others how it’s been positive in her life. She may consider a career in dance therapy.

Building Relationships “The UNM Foundation always does a great job of pairing up scholars and sponsors,” said Adrian Chavez, a key account manager at PepsiCo, a PSP corporate sponsor for eight years. “It’s great to meet the students we impact at the annual dinner and the mixers that bring the two groups together. You get a sense that scholars have very bright minds and truly appreciate the support.” PepsiCo currently sponsors Trujillo, who Chavez called “full of energy and life.” The Torreses, who have sponsored scholars for six years, appreciate the program’s emphasis on the scholar-sponsor relationship. Presidential Scholars write letters to their sponsors each year with updates on their academic progress and other life happenings. “It’s nice to get correspondence and calls even after the scholars are gone from the University,” said Cheo Torres.

Chavez encourages other companies to give back to the community and UNM via the PSP. “Strong education leads to a strong economy,” he said. “A talented workforce with a strong education is able to contribute to any business in our community. We need to educate our young minds and keep them here to build on what went before.” The PSP does just that.

“When you help students, the rewards are incredible,” commented Cheo Torres. “The student sees what it is to help someone, and they help others in return, and often become PSP sponsors themselves later in life.” In addition, the Torreses experience the gratification of making a difference in future leaders’ dreams.

“Education is absolutely critical to one’s success,” said Ann. “We hope the students who receive these scholarships will pay them forward.” Russ echoed this notion. “We’re big on return on investment. We like to see people accomplish something from what they receive. Those who are striving to better themselves can appreciate that they are returning on the investment. Improving their own well-being with potential benefit to family and community results in greater capability and, hopefully, willingness to pay it forward down the road.” The education the Rhoades received rooted their accomplishments. “We believe UNM played a major role in allowing us to experience great careers in our respective fields,” said Ann.

“We’re very involved in helping people pursue educational experiences, whether trade school or college,” said Russ, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in biology from UNM. “We feel very fortunate we were able to attend UNM. We have an affinity, respect and love for UNM, which has been influential in our lives and careers.”

ast spring, Ann Rhoades planted 50 pots of flowers. When their Albuquerque home was new, her husband, Russell (Russ) Rhoades, planted pine and aspen trees all around the yard. Clearly, they enjoy gardening, but they grow more than plants. The couple also cultivates people, and they use a rich fertilizer — education.

Ann’s career included executive roles with Southwest Airlines, Promus Hotel Company and JetBlue Airways. She’s served on numerous boards, and chaired the UNM Foundation Board of Directors 1998-2000. She also was president of the UNM Alumni Association and ASM Board of Counselors and served as a board member for UNM’s Health Sciences Center. Today, she is PRES (Person Responsible for Extraordinary Service) at People Ink, a company she founded 20 years ago. People Ink provides strategic direction for creating values-centric company cultures.

Russ’ brother who died in a car accident while attending UNM. Far into the future, Ann and Russ will keep giving through their generous bequest to ASM for its greatest need — scholarship funds. Most scholarships assist only full-time students. Graduate students, however, typically pursue advanced degrees part time while they are working full time, as did Ann. The Rhoades’ planned gift will benefit part-time graduate students. 14

“We feel very fortunate in our careers and in our lives,” said the couple, who just celebrated 50 years of marriage. “It’s important for both of us to give back in appreciation for what we’ve been able to enjoy, and hopefully because of it, others are also able to enjoy a better quality of life and continue to extend the rewards of giving.”

grants and student loans. Galicia recently received welcome assistance from a scholarship established by Dr. Michael Pollay, one of the founding faculty members at the SOM, and his wife, Peggy, a retired nurse.

“We’re facing a crisis, from large cities to small towns,” said Dr. Pollay. “The demand for physicians is great, and the expense of medical education has gotten out of hand. When I was in medical school in the early 1950s, I think I paid $150 for tuition per semester.”

by Hilary Mayall Jetty

When Dr. Pollay arrived in New Mexico in 1962, there was no UNM Health Sciences campus; he and other founding members of the fledgling school worked out of the Bernalillo County Indian Hospital. “We took over an abandoned 7-Up bottling company plant and used it for anatomy labs for a long time,” he recalled.

Y

ou don’t need a science major to get into medical school,” said Ricardo Galicia. He should know, because after earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in French from UNM, he seriously considered pursuing a path to professorship. However, a persistent desire to help underserved populations and address health disparities led him to the UNM School of Medicine (SOM).

At the age of 32, Dr. Pollay was already a noted neurosurgeon, and as the school grew from 1964 to 1976, he served as professor of anatomy, physiology and neurosurgery, and as chair of the Neurosurgery Department. He left in 1976 to pursue other opportunities at the University of Oklahoma. As former health care practitioners, the Pollays have a keen interest in supporting UNM medical students. “It’s an investment in the future,” said Mrs. Pollay. “We understand the costs these students are facing.” They endowed a scholarship at the UNM School of Medicine and are part of the school’s La Tierra Sagrada Society, whose generous members help fund educational, research and healing initiatives.

Ricardo Galicia pauses during a hike with his dog, Ollie.

Galicia, currently a fourth-year medical student, notes that his grandmother, a curandera, or healer, was respected in her town in Mexico for helping people regain their health. “She inspired me to be that same kind of person in my community,” he said, “healing the sick and teaching people how to help prevent illnesses.” Although he took some time off from academia to work and save money, the realities of financing his medical education were daunting, and he’s had to cobble together financial aid,

In a letter to the Pollays, Galicia wrote, “I am grateful for this award. I hope one day to provide the same generosity you have provided to me, to another aspiring medical student.”

Spanish was spoken in Galicia’s Los Lunas, N.M. childhood home, and he served as interpreter for his parents, which was valuable when visiting doctors, or in emergencies. “From a young age, I was on the front line when any acute situation would arise,” he recalled, “and it was from these experiences that I first became interested in health care.”

G R A T I T U D E

He intends to go into family practice in New Mexico. “I like all the various aspects of medicine,” he said, “and will be able to help all populations, from infants to geriatric patients.”

Virtual reality, also referred to as VR, is a technology that uses a headset to generate images and sounds to help users believe they are in an imaginary environment.

Whether patients need a serene environment or an interactive game to de-stress during a procedure such as an IV start, they can be taken to a happy place.” Utilizing the technology of the headsets from Child’s Play, UNMCH patients “virtually” can travel outside of the four walls of a hospital. “VR is the new frontier,” Child’s Play Executive Director Travis Eriksen said. “Whether children are playing a game, or they’re immersed in the jungle, or using Google Earth to 16

o hear Adolph Sutton tell it, there was no reason for any law school to admit him. As a child and teenager, despite his best efforts, he was deemed a D student. He struggled through college, his grade point average (GPA) barely adequate to graduate as a business major. Yet Sutton knew he was destined to be a trial lawyer — a conviction he held from the age of 8, watching “Perry Mason” on television with his grandmother in Chicago. One particular court case stood out in his mind. “I knew he was a lawyer,” Sutton recalled. “During a cross examination, a witness jumped up and grabbed the lapels of Perry Mason’s suit. I asked Grandma, ‘Do lawyers fight?’ and she said, ‘Yes, they fight with words.’ From that moment on, I knew.” After college, Sutton put his dream aside while working in the insurance industry. Despite diligent study, his Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores were below average. True to his character, Sutton was discouraged, but not disheartened. His encouraging parents had retired to Rio Rancho, N.M. and informed him about the UNM School of Law. He filed an application for the class of 1986, and a family friend arranged an introduction to thenAssociate Dean Peter Winograd. “I knew this was a major meeting,” Sutton said. “More than likely my future would be determined in that room. He asked about my GPA and LSAT scores. I was prepared.” “Neither one of those predictors can measure my will,” Sutton told Winograd, “and I believe I was put

“When you think someone has overcome significant hurdles,” Winograd someone who could make a difference and deserves a shot.” Winograd informed Sutton that although he could not guarantee admission, he would allow him to sit in on a couple of classes to see what law school would be like. “That is all I ask for, a chance,” Sutton replied. “I won’t fail you.” He didn’t. Sutton graduated from the Law School in 1986, after participating on the prestigious New Mexico Law Review staff as a writer and managing editor, and receiving a Dean’s Award for his service as second vice president of the Student Bar Association. Through the rigors of law school, with support from classmates and professors, he came to understand that test-taking anxiety, not a lack of knowledge, was the major factor in all his academic challenges. “Adolph has grit,” Winograd acknowledged. “That quality can make a big difference. His is a success story in many ways — he’s a self-made lawyer.” Sutton enjoyed a successful career as a prosecutor in the District Attorney’s office for the Second Judicial District. Recently retired after 25 years of service, he is active in the UNM School of Law Alumni Association. To honor the man who helped give him an opportunity to realize his dream, Sutton made a significant contribution to the Peter A. Winograd Endowed Scholarship Fund at the School of Law. “It is a way of thanking Peter,” Sutton stated. “I walked into his office with nothing on my resume, and he took a big chance.”

We are grateful to those who echo President Popejoy’s passion and commitment

As the first native New Mexican to hold the position of president of The University of New Mexico, Tom L. Popejoy left a far-reaching legacy. Popejoy’s 20 years as president (1948-1968), a time fondly known as the Popejoy era, capped a career that made him a UNM legend. During his tenure, the campus was greatly expanded to include the School of Medicine, KNME-TV, Jonson Gallery, the first Bratton Hall, and The Pit, to name a few, all of which helped shape the UNM footprint today.

any of New Mexico’s highest achieving and most committed high school graduates attend UNM each year due to the UNM Presidential Scholarship. These scholars earned the right to be called Presidential Scholars through their academic performance and community service. They enrich New Mexico and are exemplars of student success as Lobos on the UNM campus throughout their college careers and long after they graduate. With a gift of $2,600 each year, you may join our program as a full sponsor of a Presidential Scholar. UNM leverages your gift more than 3 to 1 to provide an award of over $9,000 that covers a student’s tuition, fees and books and is renewable for four years. As a sponsor, you are matched with a Scholar, attend special invitation-only annual events, and have an opportunity to make a personal connection with the student whose life you are helping to change. Alternately, you may make a gift of any size to the UNM Presidential Scholarship Program and “share a scholar” with other generous donors. These gifts make a difference annually by providing many additional Presidential Scholarships. For giving in perpetuity, an investment of $50,000 or more establishes an endowed Presidential Scholarship, which can bear the name of the donor, or the name of a living or deceased loved one, colleague or mentor. You may create an endowment with a one-time gift or pay over a period of three years or less.

he UNM President’s Club is a key philanthropic bridge between The University of New Mexico and our community. Comprised of distinguished alumni, community leaders and friends of UNM, President’s Club members actively support Presidential priorities and key initiatives. President’s Club donors are committed to the success of UNM and its students. Collectively, gifts to the President’s Club have had a tremendous effect in our community by helping transform the lives of generations of UNM students. Vital to the President’s Club is availability of funds that provide a dependable source of flexible annual support to the UNM President. This source of funding maximizes the President’s ability to support a broad selection of areas across campus and to be a catalyst for initiatives that advance the university experience for students.

We thank all members who supported the President’s Club during FY 2018-2019. For those who embrace the opportunity, we invite you to support the UNM President’s Club by joining as a visionary philanthropic member. Individuals, foundations, corporations and organizations who make an annual $5,000 gift to be shared equally with the President’s Fund for Excellence and the member’s designations to other UNM programs are members of the President’s Club. Members are invited to private events with the President as well as campus and athletic events.

Growing Green The UNM community is not only grateful for all the generous donors to the University, but it also extends gratitude for the awesome landscape of trees, shrubs and flowering plants on the Main Campus in Albuquerque.

Thanks to a talented team of dedicated arborists who care for the University of New Mexico Campus Arboretum, officially designated as such in 1994, many of these trees have grown throughout much of the University’s history and provide a calming environment for our students, faculty and staff. Google “UNM campus arboretum videos” for delightfully eclectic takes and tours of the University’s beautiful campus. Or better yet, come visit campus on a lovely late spring, summer or fall day, and take a look for yourself!
