SFCC Counts! Census 2020
Why is the census important? If New Mexico undercounts residents by only 1%, we would lose $780 Million Dollars. (https://www.icountnm.gov/why-is-the-census-important/)
Be counted! If you have received an invitation, respond using your Census ID.
If you haven’t received a census letter or paper questionnaire with your Census ID, wait to respond. Census workers will drop off paper questionnaires at your front door.
When people respond online or over the phone using their Census ID or mail back their completed paper questionnaire, we can get the best count of the community.
Operation Bandana still needs help with mask making, phone calls, deliveries and more!
Nursing students and CNAs Erin Price and Robin Carrillo Ortiz have been making masks to help the community during the COVID-19 pandemic. They started the group, Operation Bandana New Mexico in March to make face masks for NM health care workers. Note, these are not N95 masks, but masks for extra protection.
Follow the Operation Bandana New Mexico link to sign up to help. If you aren’t on Facebook, you can sign up to volunteer in different capacities (sew, cut, make phone calls, etc) at this link, which is at the top of the Facebook page, too:
Operation Bandana NM Google Forms Sign-up
The group provides mask materials and needs people to sew at all levels. Please disclose your sewing skill level so they can determine what is appropriate as some of the material is like gold!
We recently spoke with the duo and their main request: We Need More Help With All Tasks. They are hoping now that the semester has ended that others can help out!
Automotive Technologies Center progress
Construction is progressing rapidly on the Automotive Technologies Center. All steel has been erected and the building will soon be fully enclosed. Though the project may experience some delays due to covid-19, it remains well within budget and on track to receive a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.

Summer and Fall registration is now open! Consider taking a class
SFCC’s fall semester registration has begun. All online fees have been waived for the summer and fall semesters.
Registration opened for all on April 21. You need to use the Look for Classes in the drop down menu.
Employees: Please consider using your EEB benefit by signing up for a class this summer or fall. Also, let your friends and family know about the selection of classes they can attend from the safety of their homes.
Perhaps, you have a family member graduating from high school soon. They can get a jump start on college by enrolling now. Have them reach out to the Welcome and Advising Center at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
For more information, please see President Rowley’s message to students.
Note: Summer online classes will begin on June 8.
