On Tuesday, Katharine Winograd, the longest-serving president in Central New Mexico Community College’s history, announced her plans to retire next year.
“I have experienced so much joy serving as president of this wonderful community college. And that’s because the people I work with at CNM care so deeply about our students, our community and our state,” she said in a news release. “That was the CNM culture long before I arrived, and it will carry on long after I’m gone.”
Winograd, 62, has been at the helm of the community college for 12 years and has worked at the college for more than 22 years. She is the fifth president in CNM’s 54 years.
