Student Activities honored Indigenous Peoples at Nov. 14 event

The Indigenous Peoples event sponsored by Student Activities was an opportunity for reflection.

The Student Activities event, “SFCC Celebrates Indigenous Peoples Month,” was on Nov. 14 in the Campus Center. Speakers included Liam Morning Star (Land Acknowledgment), Danny Suazo (Staff Speaker) and Ethan Perez (Student Speaker).

Hip Hop artist G Precious (from Okay Owingeh) performed. G Precious has received many awards for her music including:

Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Thomasinia Gallegos-Ortiz, Ed.D., with Hip Hop artist G Precious.

G Precious has been recognized, nominated and won several music awards spanning across the United States and World: 

  • Indian Summer Music Award (Nominations 2016, 2017)
  • New Mexico Music Award Winner (Multiple Wins) 
  • Native American Music Award Winner (2023)
  • Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Award (Nominee 2023)
  • International Indigenous Hip Hop Award (Nominee 2023)

Academic Advisor Danny Suazo, who is from Taos Pueblo, shared his perspective with his speech:

SFCC Advisor Danny Suazo spoke at the Indigenous Peoples event.

“This month is not a month to celebrate but rather a month to memorialize the struggles of Indigenous people. Many of you may be familiar with New Mexico History. Taos Pueblo/Red Willow has been at the heart of many rebellions. We gave refuge to Popay, who planned the Pueblo Revolt from our Village. Our people also fought the U.S. Army Regulars and militia during the Taos Rebellion in 1847. The old pueblo church was destroyed and now is a cemetery and symbol of our ancestors who fought so that we may carry on our sacred traditions.

“But the battles were not only fought with guns and knives. They were also fought in the courtrooms and the halls of Congress. In 1906, through presidential decree, 75,000 acres of sovereign land became a part of the Carson National Forest. The sacred Blue Lake wilderness area would be open to timber foresting, mining and grazing for over 60 years. In 1970 legislation was passed and signed by President Richard Nixon that gave the Blue Lake Wilderness area back to Taos Pueblo in a landmark decision that would change Indian Public Policy.”

Suazo added, “The following statement was made by one our religious leaders about the relationship Taos Pueblo has with its sacred land.

“We have lived upon this land from days beyond history’s records, far past any living memory, deep in the time of Legend. The story of my people and the story of this place are a single story. No man can think of us without thinking of this place. We are always joined together.” Translated from Tiwa

Suazo continued, “Assimilation was the goal of the U.S. government with the establishment of boarding schools. Assimilation through education and the mantra “ kill the Indian to save the man” was the goal. Words like savages and uncivilized were frequent in legislation used to establish these schools. Many children were taken from their homes to these boarding schools and the mechanism for social change was in motion.

The experiences of these children were traumatic. Indigenous peoples continue to feel the effects of this historical trauma. My grandparents and others experienced this as recently has 100 years ago. In 1923 when my grandpa was 10 years old he was taken away to the United States Industrial Indian School, known as Santa Fe Indian School today.”

We thank Danny Suazo for sharing his speech with Campus Weekly. We thank Student Activities, Student Involvement Coordinator Mary Eleas and all who participated to make this event successful. A special thank you to SGA Treasurer Marcelo Figueiredo for taking photos. Also, thank you to Jonathan Harrell for sending his photo of Danny Suazo.

Santa Fe Reporter story highlights SFCC’s growth in dual credit students

Check out the Santa Fe Reporter Nov. 15 story, “Advancing College & Careers: High school students pursue SFCC’s dual enrollment program in record numbers.” The story shares information on the growth in the College’s dual credit classes. Both Niki McKay and Marcos Maez are quoted in the story.

Here’s a brief excerpt:

Dual credit has become more popular with high school students this year, according to SFCC Director of Student Engagement and Recruitment Marcos Maez. About 20% of the college’s total enrollment this semester are dual credit students, he reports, and the number of dual credit students enrolled increased 23% from the 2022 fall semester.

“Currently, we are experiencing our highest-ever fall semester enrollment of dual credit students in SFCC’s history, with 880 students registered,” Maez tells SFR. “Equally noteworthy is the diversity among our dual credit students…81% of dual credit students are students of color.”

In Memoriam: Richard ‘Rick’ Abeles

Richard “Rick” Abeles

SFCC offers sympathy to the family and friends of longtime-SFCC supporter Richard “Rick” Abeles, who recently passed away. Rick Abeles, JD, was the Immediate Past SFCC Foundation Board President and was an Emeritus Board Member. He co-founded the Santa Fe Children’s Museum and served on many local boards including the Metropolitan Water Board. He received his B.A. in Physics from Amherst College and his Juris Doctorate from Harvard Law School.

See his obituary here. He and his wife Kathy had in recent years moved out of state to be closer to their daughter while his wife Kathy faced health challenges. Katheleen “Kathy” Koretz Abeles passed away in December 2022. She was also an avid supporter of Santa Fe Community College.

Richard “Rick” Abeles and his wife Kathleen “Kathy” shown in this image from a 2015 SFCC Foundation scholarship fundraising event.

The Santa Fe New Mexican story, “RICHARD ‘RICK’ ABELES, 1937-2023: Children’s museum, community college dear to lawyer” expressed his devotion to helping the students of SFCC through the SFCC Foundation.

Here are some excerpts from Santa Fe New Mexican reporter Maya Hilty’s story:

“In 2010, he joined the board of the Santa Fe Community College Foundation, which supports students through scholarships and supports the college through special project grants. He served for nearly a decade, including four years as board president during some rocky times for the college, his daughter said.

Treasurer Steve Gaber, recruited to the board about six years ago by Abeles, praised him as responsible for “dramatically” growing foundation funds and making it a significant part of the college today.

Abeles also served as an ambassador for the college during his tenure on the board and beyond, Gaber and foundation Executive Director Kelly Marquez said.

“He talked about the community college all the time. He took classes; he played pickleball at the community college for years; he and his wife created an endowment through the foundation,” Marquez said. “Personally, he helped mentor me in a bunch of different ways, reminded me [to be] strong and made me understand how to be the best I could possibly be.”

“He knew everybody in Santa Fe and had a relationship with so many people,” Marquez continued. “He brought people to us, and they would give large gifts … just because Rick told them how the college makes such a difference in people’s lives.” “

The family has requested in lieu of flowers that donations in his memory be made to the SFCC Foundation.

Campus Cupboard needs funding;

Donate before Dec. 31

to double your donation


Inside Campus Cupboard

Campus Cupboard goods

Thanks to all the employees who donated toward the Campus Cupboard in conjunction with the Winter Party!

Executive Director of SFCC Foundation Kelly Marquez said, “Our campus community’s food needs have increased and we really need everyone’s support. If people donate before Dec. 31 their contributions will be doubled.”

With increased demand for food and other household items, the Campus Cupboard funding is getting depleted. So much so that there are concerns that the cupboard would not be able to fully operate through all of next year.

Kelly Marquez explains the contributed dollars go a long way since the Campus Cupboard is able to purchase food at a reduced rate through the Food Depot. She says while people are tempted to just drop off food, she said it’s not efficient since often the food is due to expire and people don’t fully understand the Cupboard’s needs.

The Campus Cupboard serves students, as well as staff and faculty members who are facing food insecurity. Donate to Campus Cupboard:

Refrigerated items are also available in the Campus Cupboard.

Help feed student success through SFCC’s Campus Cupboard, a food pantry for anyone who is experiencing food insecurity. One in five low-income New Mexicans doesn’t know where his or her next meal is coming from. Some of our students are among those considered food insecure. They struggle to go to school while trying to support themselves and their families.

Also, as many realize many of our students are parents to infants and young children. The Campus Cupboard expanded to meet those needs by providing baby food and diapers.

Financial contributions are welcome. Your generosity and support will aid us in continuation of our work among the most needy on our campus, and will be greatly appreciated. Your contribution is tax deductible, as we are a federally recognized 501(c) 3 tax-exempt charity. Monetary donations may be made through the donation button for SFCC Foundation.

When you make your donation scroll down to click on Campus Cupboard or include that information in the comments section of the donation form. Questions? Send the SFCC Foundation a message.

Do you know a student or someone on campus who needs food?

We thank Student Involvement Coordinator Mary Eleas and her team of student workers who operate the Campus Cupboard. If you know any students who’d like to help out in the Cupboard next semester have them send an email to

If you know someone in our campus community who needs food, please have them schedule an appointment or delivery via the pink button labeled Campus Cupboard on MySFCC.

Please email or call 505-428-1775 if you have questions. The Campus Cupboard is in Room LL305. Personal hygiene products are provided by Free Flow NM, a local nonprofit providing access to free menstrual products.

Richards Ave. now open; ongoing construction on Beckner Road

Santa Fe County photo of intersection of Richards Ave. and Dinosaur Trail. Visit

Yay! The roundabout at Richards Ave. and Dinosaur Trail is now open. Please note: Some construction on Rabbit Road and other parts of Dinosaur Trail continues.

Here’s the official notice from Santa Fe County:

The Santa Fe County Public Works Department is excited to announce an early opening of the newly constructed roundabout at Richards Avenue and Dinosaur Trail. Effective Friday, October 20, 2023, at 3:00 pm Richards Ave will be fully operational and open to traffic. This is the second of six roundabouts slated for the Northeast and Southeast Connectors Roads Project.

While we are satisfied to reopen Richards Avenue in advance of schedule, we want to inform our residents that the west connection to Dinosaur Trail will be established at a later date. In the interim, the existing signalized intersection located south of this roundabout will remain in full operation to ensure consistent traffic flow. Moreover, the east connection to Rabbit Road is currently under construction and will be opened at a later date.   

On September 11, 2023, the contractor commenced work on this roundabout with the strict timeline to complete and reopen Richards Ave within (60) calendar days.  Due to an aggressive schedule and optimum weather, this work was completed in (40) days. 

This is a great example of the commitment made by Santa Fe County to the community, to streamline any disruptions to traffic while we complete this important road project. Santa Fe County envisions the Northeast and Southeast Connectors Roads project as the most dynamic transportation conduit of the Community College District, strengthening connectivity and safety in this growing community.

For additional information regarding the project, please visit or contact Johnny Baca, Project Manager 3, at

For any future road updates please sign up for Alert Santa Fe.

Re: Beckner Road. According to a Nov. 2 story in the Santa Fe New Mexican, Beckner Road will have ongoing construction for six to eight months. Read the story, “Beckner “Road to be closed for six to eight more months, city says”

Enhancements to

In an email on Thursday, June 13 Executive Director of Marketing and Public Relations Todd Lovato shared the following about the public website:

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing today to update you on an exciting development on our public website. For more than a year, a team of my MPR teammates have worked on a project to enhance our website offerings for prospective students.

We are pleased to announce that some of these website revisions – which include some updates to program and department pages – are being introduced today. Website updates and adaptations are an ongoing process. I’d like to point out, however, that the focus of these latest revisions was primarily to enhance the experience of prospective students on our site as they navigate the admissions process and explore educational pathways at SFCC. The updates provide enhanced access to career information, registration guidance and support resources. They also address some on-going technical and user navigation issues.

Many of the recent updates are best viewed by exploring SFCC offerings via the college’s Educational Pathways landing page.

These enhancements have been carefully developed using higher education best practice research, website and search engine optimization (SEO) traffic analytics, consultation with local web developers and writers, as well as ongoing consultation and collaboration with many of our colleagues throughout the campus.

Also, please note that these changes provide MPR with new features and additional ways to collaborate with programs and departments to further improve the website and provide prospective students easier access to information about college programs.

As with any web updates, there is the possibility of small, easily fixable glitches like broken links or re-directs. As we comb for these bugs, I ask for your help by keeping an eye out for anything out of the ordinary. Please contact MPR with these updates using the MPR Job Request Form. This will enable us to quickly address issues. Please continue to review and update your department’s respective webpages for out-of-date or excessive information. Please note, today’s message pertains to the college’s public website, and does not include changes to MySFCC or the SFCC Connect Intranet, which are not under MPR’s purview.

I’d like to thank my MPR team and colleagues across campus for their persistence, collaborative energy, and continued focus on our college’s future students.

We look forward to continuing to work with you in promoting SFCC’s outstanding programs to our community.

The State of New Mexico and New Mexico Higher Education Department recently announced they will no longer require the reporting of COVID-19 cases amongst student, staff, and faculty who are on campus via the Rapid Response Submission Portal.

Our college continues to take the transmission and threat of infectious diseases seriously and we remain committed to keeping our community as safe as possible. Please note the following:

  • The college no longer requires reporting of COVID-19 positive cases to SFCC’s Contact Tracing Team.

    • You should isolate from others when you have COVID-19.
    • You should also isolate if you are sick and suspect that you have COVID-19 but do not yet have test results.
    • Ending isolation is detailed on the CDC’s Isolation and Precautions for People with COVID-19 webpage – “Ending Isolation”.
  • Positive or suspected positive individuals should coordinate closely with supervisors to make appropriate accommodations, as well as reporting for absences using regular sick leave.
    • If you are out of sick leave and contracted COVID-19, please contact the Office for Human Resources to determine if other options are available to you.
  • The college custodial staff continues its rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols, which includes a campus-wide daily schedule, with emphasis on bathrooms, and higher traffic and enclosed spaces.
  • Additionally, Facilities and Operations staff have made significant improvements to college ventilation and filtration systems and those systems are up and running.

The College will continue to follow best practices, community levels, and infectious disease developments.
