Dr. Tafoya devotedly served as a McNair mentor from the beginning of the McNair Scholars Program at the university. Dr. Tafoya, who was from Juarez and El Paso, received his Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico. His poetry and his research fully manifested his love of the Spanish language, the Southwest Borderlands, Mexico, his family, and his students.
