"His understanding of all posts pertaining to custody has been a tremendous asset in the training of new staff members," said Franco. "His dedication to the Reeves county Detention Center is outstanding," he said.

"It is a pleasure to be associated with an individual such as Officer Hernandez, who exhibits such professionalism," said Franco.

The Faculty of Arts and Sciences of Harvard University announces the graduation of Alva Elizama Alvarez, having conferred upon her a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Anthropology.
