Remembering Rita Clements

It is with great sadness that that we've learned of the passing of Mrs. Rita Crocker Clements at her home in Dallas on January 6, 2018.  Gov. and Mrs. Clements were ardent supporters of the SMU-in-Taos campus since it's inception, and Rita Clements served as Honorary Chair of the SMU-in-Taos Executive Board since 2003.  The legacy of the Clements family's generosity is evident across the campus, from Casita Clements, our newest student residence hall, to the Clements Great Hall in the Miller Campus Center, as well as the Clements Retreat Center, formerly the private residence where Gov. and Mrs. Clements spent many of their summers in New Mexico.  We will miss Rita Clements' sense of style, her broad smile, and the pride she had in sharing New Mexico with so many members of the SMU community over the past years. Click here for more information.
