ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The University of New Mexico Board of Regents is saying goodbye to a member of nearly 20 years.
Regent Jack Fortner sent his letter of resignation to Gov. Martinez on Tuesday.
He said he’s grateful for being able to serve his alma mater, contributing to its success in academics, research, medicine and athletics.
Fortner’s recent term expired in December, but he continued to serve until now because a replacement had not been confirmed by the New Mexico Senate.
He served 18 years.
