ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Military Institute’s Board of Regents has terminated its agreement with the alumni association that allowed the group to raise money on behalf of the institute.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1KKdZmw ) that the move is the latest in an ongoing dispute between the Roswell school and the 51-year-old NMMI Alumni Association. The regents also told the association not to use NMMI trademarks or logos.

The dispute began over the group’s financial record-keeping in April 2013. A month later, NMMI officials locked the association’s on-campus office and told its employees to leave.

Executive Director Dan Whitfield said Monday that the association has continued raising funds and giving scholarships to NMMI cadets. But he says those efforts have been stymied by the controversy.

A lawsuit filed by the regents against the association is still pending.
