“Our Deer Family” at Otero Junior College


The holiday spirit has spread across the Otero Junior College campus. Each year the students, staff and faculty participate in the annual OJC Holiday Decorating Challenge. The theme this year was “Our Deer Family”. The decorating challenge is open to all departments, clubs, groups, organizations and individuals at both OJC and CDS who would like to create a themed holiday display. The challenge began was a quest to bring the holiday spirit to campus for our students and has become an annual event that is enjoyed by all.

This year’s challenge has been taken to new heights by the OJC Physical Plant staff. Janet Golden had the vision and Casey Weaver and Carlos Aragon constructed reindeers out of logs and branches saved throughout the year from trees and bushes that had been trimmed on campus. Physical Plant had a “Build a Deer” day in which each of the physical plant employees decorated a reindeer with their own personal style.

The Physical Plant “Our Deer Family” is located on the front lawn of the main entry into Wheeler Hall. OJC invites the community to stop by and see this amazing display. Feel free to walk the campus and see all the displays created by the staff and departments on campus.

Happy Holidays from the Otero Junior College’s “Deer Family” to yours.
