Hobbs, NM – October 4, 2023: New Mexico Junior College (NMJC) was honored to host representatives from the esteemed World Safety Organization (WSO) on Oct.4 for an in-depth campus tour.

Guiding the tour was NMJC’s proud alumna, Monica Cervantes, who stands out in her professional journey as a World Safety Organization-certified safety instructor of master level (ISO 17024) and a WSO-certified safety technician. Ms. Cervantes, who recognized for her significant contributions to the "World Safety Journal", shared her invaluable insights and expert perspectives throughout the tour, focusing on both NMJC’s commitment to safety and its broader educational offerings.

During the tour, attendees had the opportunity to explore academic facilities, recreational areas, and safety infrastructure put in place by the college. Through Monica's narrative, the WSO visitors got a glimpse of how NMJC integrates safety standards and practices within its academic environment along with Vice President for Operations & Special Projects Charley Carroll, Ph.D.
