August 25, 2021
New Mexico Historic Sites is excited to welcome David Flores as the new maintenance and repair worker at Lincoln Historic Site and Fort Stanton Historic Site. His first day was August 21.
A resident of Lincoln County for 20 years, Flores brings a wealth of professional experience into the position, including more than a decade in facilities maintenance, and has a specific knowledge of historic structures and other cultural resources. He previously worked with the facilities team at Fort Stanton and Lincoln from 2013-2017, before transferring to the Fort Stanton State Veteran Cemetery.
"We were disappointed when David left but excited for his new opportunities," said Tim Roberts, deputy director of New Mexico Historic Sites. "Now, we couldn’t be more thrilled that he has rejoined the Historic Sites team and are enthusiastic about the skillsets and experience he brings to the table. His familiarity of both historic properties ensures that he can jump right in and start assisting with moving a number of critical projects forward.”
During his previous work with New Mexico Historic Sites, Flores was integral in the planning and execution of Fort Stanton Live between 2013 and 2017 and assisted in overseeing work by volunteers, including members of the local EcoServants organization funded by the Youth Conservation Corps and AmeriCorps.
