Good Afternoon,

A big thank you to all of the alumni/friends that helped last weekend with our make a statement drive. I am especially grateful to each and every one of you! It was nice to be able to catch up with those who attended our alumni reunion event last weekend. If you can, please help us by sharing this opportunity with others. The direct link is: 

Thank you so much for your support. Have a great day!

PGM Program Alumni Reunion

March 21, 2018

Good Afternoon,

I'm excited that this weekend is our Alumni Reunion Weekend. We have several alumni coming into town to participate in the events. Many of you have reached out through text, phone calls and emails stating that you are unable to make but you still wanted to take part in the donation for the Gage Gavin Scholarship Endowment. 

We have worked with the NMSU Foundation to reactivate last year's fundraiser to give you all an opportunity to participate through donation. We have increased the original goal from $10K to $30K.

We are about $8,000 away from reaching our new goal. Many of you have asked, "Why did you pick this weekend?" The main reason is, my son Gage Gavin would be turning 21 years old this coming Monday. We thought it'd be a perfect opportunity to tie in his birthday with the Alumni weekend as well as our Sun Country PGA meeting which is also taking place this Monday.

For all of you coming into town, I look forward to seeing you. If you're unable to make it but would still like to donate, this is the platform to make it easy. With all that said, I just wanted to thank everybody for all the support over the last few years toward me and my family. 

Have a good weekend. 

Thank You,


Scholarships = Student Success. Thank You!

Good Afternoon,

As I reflect over the impact that each and every one of you have made, I am filled with gratitude. I'm grateful that you stepped up to the plate last semester to make a difference for students in honor of Gage and I'm grateful that you have helped keep his memory vibrant.

#GivingTuesday Announcement

November 11, 2016

Good Afternoon, 

I wanted to let you know that I sincerely appreciate your donation to Gage's Scholarship. We really could not do what we do without the generous support we've received from you.

However, we are not quite done and really need your help in getting the word out about Gage's Scholarship. Please share this opportunity with others who might be interested in helping out students here at NMSU.

On the bright side, #GivingTuesday is coming up. On that day, there will be special match monies available. For example, Alumni who make their first contribution during #GivingTuesday will be matched by a generous Aggie donor up to $250 per household.

If you know of other alumni who may not have ever made a contribution to support students at NMSU, please let them know that they can make twice the impact! Thanks again for your help.

If you've already made your first gift to the University, El Paso Electric will match scholarship contributions made on #GivingTuesday up to $250 per household and Gage's Scholarship through this platform will be included in the eligibility for matches (



PS Please make your contributions to Gage's Endowed Scholarship through this platform so it's easier for us to track.

Thank You, we're almost there!

Again, thank you for your support!
