Luna Community College cutting jobs amid major budget cuts

LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) – Luna Community College announced it is cutting jobs amid major budget cuts.

The Las Vegas Optic reports President Leroy “Huero” Sanchez issued letters to at least five employees last week, notifying them that they won’t have jobs come July 1.

The layoff notices came just two days after the Luna Community College Board of Trustees approved a new organizational chart for the college.

Sanchez has said that the new organizational chart contains savings for the college as the school faces a shortfall.

Gary Martinez, Luna’s director of trades, was one of those who received layoff notice. He says employees who are being let go weren’t given reasons. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
