As chair of the advisory board, Lindsay will help plan and oversee the board meeting agendas, provide leadership to meet a major fundraising goal for the Edgar R. Garrett Campaign and assist in carrying out the vision and mission of the NMSU Communication Disorders Program through advisory board support.

"It's a great opportunity for us to have him as chair because of both his experience with Rotary as well as his loyalty to the department," said Communication Disorders Program Director Marlene Salas-Provance. "He also made a significant planned contribution to the Edgar R. Garrett Speech and Hearing Center, so to have his support in our campaign will be great."

Lindsay is a graduate of the Communication Disorders Program at NMSU. He completed a bachelor's degree with honors in 1971 and a master's degree in speech-language pathology in 1972.

Currently employed as a speech-language pathologist in the Deming Public Schools, Lindsay recently completed his term as district governor of Rotary District 5520 and has been a Rotary member for more than 20 years.
