New Mexico State Aggies football statistical leaders

The New Mexico State Aggies football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the New Mexico State Aggies football program in various categories, including passing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, career leaders; the Aggies represent New Mexico State University in the NCAA's Sun Belt Conference. Although New Mexico State began competing in intercollegiate football in 1894, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1954. Records from before this year are incomplete and inconsistent, they are not included in these lists; these lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons: Since 1954, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and 12 games in length. The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972, allowing players to have four-year careers; the Aggies haven't played in a bowl game since playing in the 1960 Sun Bowl. However, the Aggies did accumulate many yards of offense during Hal Mumme's four-year stint as head coach from 2005 through 2008.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season. Total offense is the sum of rushing statistics, it does not include receiving or returns

Hannah Elizabeth (ship)

Hannah Elizabeth was built in 1829 in Stonington, Connecticut. Records of the time describe her as being a two-masted schooner, 20 feet wide. At the time of the sinking her weight was listed as 74 tons recorded was that she was armed with three cannons. In 1835, Peter Kerr, Fernando de Leon and Jesus Carbajal chartered the Hannah Elizabeth to carry trade supplies and munitions from New Orleans to Matagorda. A portion of the shipment was for the newly formed Texan Army in this area. On November 19, 1835, a Mexican warship, sighted the Hannah Elizabeth along the Texas coast. During the ensuing chase the Hannah Elizabeth became stranded on a sandbar as she attempted to enter Pass Cavallo to the safety of Matagorda Bay; the Montezuma’s crew took advantage of this and fired upon the Hannah Elizabeth, as she lay helplessly beached. The crew of the Hannah Elizabeth, realizing that their ship was about to be captured carrying contraband material, threw most of the cargo overboard; this cargo included 500 muskets, two field cannons and ammunition.

The Montezuma’s crew proceeded to board the Hannah Elizabeth capturing her crew and leaving a small crew from the Montezuma on board to guard the stranded ship. During the evening severe weather forced the Montezuma to retreat, at which time a small Texas ship, William Robbins, recaptured the Hannah Elizabeth. A complete salvage of the vessel and her remaining cargo was thwarted when the vessel rolled over and broke up in the breakers. During the 1999 expedition to find the second La Salle ship, the L’Aimable, a wreck was found and explored that lay on the southeast side of the entrance into Pass Cavallo. In 2001 divers from the Texas Historical Commission and Texas A&M University conducted further exploration of this site. Over 200 artifacts were recovered, including the remains of muskets, lead shot, many other military items that were dated from the early 19th century. After research by the THC & Texas A&M, the Hannah Elizabeth was picked as the most candidate for this shipwreck.

Kate Sheppard National Memorial

The Kate Sheppard National Memorial, located in the city of Christchurch, is New Zealand's first memorial to the women's suffrage campaign, honours the life of one of the country's leading campaigners for women's suffrage, Kate Sheppard. The idea for the memorial was raised in 1989 as part of plans to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand in 1993. A committee was formed to select a design for the memorial, the design of Dutch-born New Zealand artist Margriet Windhausen was chosen; the memorial is a stone aggregate wall, with a life size bronze relief sculpture of Sheppard and five other women's suffrage leaders. Panels on either side of the sculpture depict scenes of everyday women's lives at the end of the nineteenth century, carry text describing the struggle for women's suffrage; the whole structure is 5 metres wide and 2 metres tall. The women featured in the sculpture are: Helen Nicol, a women's suffrage campaigner who lived in Dunedin Kate Sheppard Ada Wells, a campaigner for girls' education Harriet Morison, an advocate for working women from Dunedin Meri Te Tai Mangakāhia of Te Tai Tokerau, who approached Te Kotahitanga for women's suffrage Amey Daldy of the Auckland Woman's Christian Temperance Union.

The group of women are depicted carrying their petition for women's suffrage to Parliament in a wooden cart. The memorial was unveiled on 19 September 1993, the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in New Zealand, by Dame Catherine Tizard, the Governor-General of New Zealand. A time capsule containing news articles and information on women's lives in 1993 was placed inside the monument; the memorial is located in a landscaped area known as the Kate Sheppard National Memorial Reserve, beside the Avon River and adjacent to a heritage building, Our City near the corner of Worcester Street and Oxford Terrace. This building was damaged in the 2010 Canterbury earthquake and the memorial was behind barricades while the building was assessed. In a ceremony presided over by the Mayor of Christchurch, Lianne Dalziel, in June 2014, the memorial was liberated from the barricades and public access was restored.
