'Bump' says goodbye to Borderland


Friends, colleagues and well-wishers celebrated Richard "Bump" Elliott and his wife, Erlene, at their farewell bash April 12 at La Posta de Mesilla. Elliott served as Las Cruces Public Schools athletic director from 1988-2005, then was a special assistant to the athletic director at New Mexico State University from 2005-09, and finally athletic director at Gadsden High School from 2010-12. Among his accomplishments, Elliott helped coordinate plans, resources and support for the Las Cruces Field of Dreams football stadium. The Elliotts are moving to Canyon, Texas, to be nearer to family.
