Adam and I found that there were not many resources to help guide Christian singles on how to court to be married, so they went to the world for help finding a husband or wife. We’ve created a step-by-step guide for Christian courting. This guide helps Christian singles have confidence in who God created them to be, their value, knowing their intentions for courting, creating their expectations for a husband or wife, building boundaries for emotional strength and ending a courtship. By using these guides you will have a Godly foundation to court to be marriage.

Dear friends, The University of New Mexico has a rich tradition of achievements by students and alumni over our long history. We lost of one our great alums in 2015 when Adolph Plummer passed away.

Adolph’s legacy includes incredible athletic achievements as a member of the UNM Track & Field Program. In 1961, Plummer became the NCAA Champion in the 440 and was a three-time All-American. His greatest achievement on the track occurred in May 1963 in Tempe, AZ, when he shocked future Olympic Champion Ulis Williams on his home track with a 44.9 second world record in the 440. While Adolph's athletics accolades are countless, so are the lives he touched as a long-time educator at both UNM as well as in Colorado.

A group of Adolph's friends and former teammates want to honor him in a way that will stand the test of time with a statue that will live at the UNM Track and Field Complex. We need your help to make it happen. We have a goal of raising $60,000 to build and erect the statue.

Please consider making a gift to the Adolph Plummer Tribute Fund either online through this link or via mail to:
Adolph Plummer Tribute Fund (202865)
UNM Foundation
700 Lomas Blvd. NE 
Two Woodward Center 
Albuquerque, NM 87102

(Make checks payable to UNM Foundation w/ Adolph Plummer in the memo line) If we are unable to reach our overall goal, there will be an alternative recognition befitting of this UNM legend. Thank you for helping recognize Adolph and his legacy.

Sincerely, Harold Bailey B.S. '69, M.A. '71, Ph.D.'75
John Cordova B.S. '61
Larry Ryan Vice President for University Development UNM Foundation
