My name is Sally Beckworth, Executive Secretary for Student Health Services at Western New Mexico University. I was raised in Silver City and graduated from WNMU in 1981 with a degree in Secondary Education (Biology). My husbandís career took us away from Silver for many years, during which time I returned to college to become certified in Elementary Education and taught Kindergarten for 15 years in Texas and Louisiana. We returned to Silver City to retire and I started my service to WNMU in the Human Resources Office. I transferred to Early Childhood Programs and worked a short time for La Familia, then as a Pre-school Teacher at the CDC.
In July of last year I began working for Student Health Services and have been blessed to work with an outstanding team of professionals to provide our students with excellent health care, counseling, and disabilities services. We firmly believe that by promoting good physical and mental health, our students receive an advantage in achieving not only academic success at Western but success with future endeavors.
