About Our College

The college was founded in 1969 as the result of a 1967 act of authorization by the New Mexico Legislature. Legislation to establish the school was sponsored by State Senator Ray Leger.[2] The school was named "Luna Area Vocational Technical School" after Captain Maximiliano Luna, who was a Speaker of the New Mexico House of Representatives and a member of the Rough Riders. The name was changed in 2000 to Luna Community College.[1]
