Class of 2020
Linda Anderle, Treasurer
It was on the Highlands campus, as a student, that I realized whatever path I might seek, it would be northern New Mexico that I would return and settle. Since my 2007 homecoming to Las Vegas, I have reconnected to our community in a variety of ways. One was the opening of 2 Ten, A Galeria of Art & Treasures on the Plaza and another, joining the Board of the Arts Council. Both serve to stimulate my creative side as well as engaging the public for the sake of artistic endeavors. My goal is to encourage one to be exposed to many different styles of art: it helps to develop the eye and taste and therefore opens one to an appreciation of all. It is rewarding to discover that each one of us can make some form of art.
