LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - The president of the National Education Association is coming to southern New Mexico to help launch a new “community school.”

Lily Eskelsen Garcia is scheduled to visit Lynn Middle School in Las Cruces on Thursday to celebrate the opening a school the union says is a multipurpose center.

Community schools are usually jointly operated through a partnership between the school and at least one lead community agency.

The union president is slated to attend a student rally and speak at a presentation.

Garcia became the union’s first Latina president after she was elected in 2014.
