Also, a donation of an item to our silent auction taking place on September 20 will get your name listed on our shirt as proud supporter of Highlands.

Please contact the Alumni Office by July 31, 2019 to ensure your name appears on the official 2019 Cowboy 5K Gallop & Trot race shirt by our printing deadline.

Show your Cowboy Pride!

NMHU Career Services is focusing on better preparing our students for job interviews and professionalism.

With the high cost of college expenses, most students cannot afford a professional outfit to wear to an interview or potential job, so we are starting a Career Clothing Closet to provide a professional outfit to students, at no charge to them. We can only meet these goals with the help of community members like yourself.

We are seeking donations of pre-used clothing items that students can use to accomplish a better impression at their interview or job.

Your contributions are greatly appreciated! We can only hope that you will support our mission and help us implement our program and initiatives.

You can drop off your contributions to NMHU Career Services in the Felix Martinez Building, Suite 230, by mail to Box 9000 Las Vegas, NM 87701 or call (505)454-3048 for pick-up.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at (505)454-3048 or through email


Have any Highlands Memorabilia?

Clearing things out?  Making space in a move? We'd love to talk to you about any Highlands related memorabilia you have!

Have an old Highlands annual that you’d like to donate? Our alumni office will gratefully accept yearbooks, old pennents, and other ephemera.

Email us at so we can find those memories a new home!
