Alicia ’24 recently had an opportunity to spend some time with New Mexico’s newly-elected Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, and Alicia is looking forward to Lujan Grisham’s leadership. “She’s very wise and has great ideas for New Mexico,” Alicia said. “I’m excited to see what she will do for our state.”
Alicia’s grandmother, Marguerite Salazar, was recently tapped by Governor Lujan Grisham to serve as Superintendent for New Mexico’s Regulation and Licensing Department.
“I went with my grandma to the Capitol to see what it was like,” Alicia said. It was during that visit that the governor introduced her grandmother and two others to the delegates to share “how she’s [Salazar] going to help make New Mexico a better place.” Salazar left her position as regulatory chief for the state of Colorado to join the governor’s cabinet.
Alicia said she was nervous to talk with New Mexico’s new governor and that her conversation was short but sweet. “She asked about school and where I went,” Alicia said. “She said she had heard great things [about Bosque School].”
