Alumni group intends to appeal

The Institute Alumni Association has decided to appeal.

A court has ordered the group to surrender $5 million to NMMI.

The association’s Dan Whitfield tells the Roswell Daily Record that it continues operating at the Best Western Sally Port Inn & Suites as it awaits a ruling on its appeal.

Whitfield says it disgrees with May’s vote from the board of regents to terminate their agreement and cut all ties.

He believes the association remains affiliated with the institute.
