ENMU registrar retiring in January
Eastern New Mexico University registrar Betty Crane is retiring Jan. 19 after 36 years of service, according to a school press release.

Crane started with the university as a secretary for the dean of admissions and records.

Crane said she plans to spend more time with her grandchild and relax after retirement, according to an ENMU press release.

“I have truly enjoyed my time working here at Eastern and will miss the entire university community when I leave. One thing that I wished I had done was to keep a diary that included the names of all the employees that I worked with and notes of all the good, fun times that was enjoyed and shared by all,” Crane said in the release.
