Former ENMU rodeo Coach Honored

Submitted on: September 21, 2016

Portales News-Tibune

PORTALES — Saturday was a special day for the Eastern New Mexico University rodeo team and surrounding community, not only because the girls team won the overall event at the College "Daze" Rodeo for the second straight year, but because former rodeo coach Charles Chambers was honored throughout the day for his longtime service and commitment to Eastern and its rodeo teams.

Humble as always, Chambers barely recognized his accomplishments while at Eastern, lauding all the honors on his former students.

"Well, the big thing and most important, my kids and former contestants made the program. I was just along for the ride," said Chambers. "I'm very proud of those kids who I had. It (the award) should go to all the kids and students who rodeoed for me."

Retiring in 1998, Chambers served as the head rodeo coach for 23 years and led the Greyhounds to two national championships with the women's team in 1981 and '83. The team also earned numerous regional championships during his time. The retired coach was quick to point out that he had someone representing ENMU in nationals almost the entirety of his tenure.

"We had someone representing us all but three years, whether it was as an individual or a team."

Not only was Chambers awarded a shining belt buckle for his 23 years at Eastern, but he was given a plaque during the evening for his continued support of the rodeo team. The championship round of the College "Daze" rodeo was even coined the ‘Chambers Championship Round' in his honor.

Of this year's team, event and coach, Chambers once again had nothing but kind words, saying, "I think Albert (Flinn) has done a wonderful job recruiting and putting on the rodeo. The girls have been strong and I'm looking forward to what they can do after this."

Ad Scam

Submitted on: September 21, 2016

Someone is misrepresenting themselves to ENMU staff and possibly the Portales Community. There is someone with a blocked number that is calling people representing themselves as selling ads for the ENMU basketball program. On a particular call the person went to transfer them to someone that had been working on programs for us as well as representing marketing for this company and the person hung up the phone.

Anytime someone is out soliciting ads or anything else on behalf of ENMU Athletics then it will be an ENMU Athletic staff member. We do not hire out third party solicitors. If we ever did hire out a third party solicitor we would communicate with you all in advance.

Unless the solicitation of this nature comes directly from an ENMU Athletic Staff member it is NOT authorized by ENMU Athletics. Consequently, the person may be misrepresenting themselves---a SCAM!

Employee Brief

The journal, Racial and Ethnic Studies, has accepted an article co-authored by Dr. Sue Stockly for publication: "The Role of Race, Ethnicity and Tribal Enrollment on Asset Accumulation: An Examination of American Indian Tribal Nations." The authors are Randall Akee (UCLA), Sue Stockly (ENMU), William Darity (Duke), Darrick Hamilton (New School) and Paul Ong (UCLA).

This article stems from the project, "National Asset Scorecard for Communities of Color," funded by the Ford Foundation (PI's Darity & Hamilton). Dr. Stockly chaired a subcommittee that analyzed survey data from Tulsa, OK, with an oversampling of the Native American population. This paper is the first to empirically demonstrate that asset accumulation for Native Americans significantly depends on tribe and tribal affiliation.
