My name is Winona Johnson and I attended Eastern New Mexico University where I received a bachelor’s of university studies with concentrations in English and communication. I was born on Cannon Air Force Base, but my family moved to Italy for six years. After that my father was stationed back at Cannon and now I live in Clovis.
Some of my hobbies include reading, drawing, painting and listening to music. My favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo and I enjoy reading other classics. When it comes to drawing, my favorite medium is charcoal. I am always looking forward to each day that I get to work at the writing center where I hope to be helpful to others.
If I had to choose an actress to play me, I suppose I would pick Irene Bedard.
My name is Tametrya Myers. I am from southwest Arkansas, and I received both my bachelor's and master's degrees from Henderson State University. I have studied abroad in Mexico, traveled in Europe, and taught English in Japan. This is my third semester working for CCC but my first semester working in The Writing Center.
I love reading, writing, and traveling. I also love doing crafts, especially crocheting. I wrote a novel last year and plan to attempt another one this year. I am excited to be back in a writing center after all these years, and I cannot wait to assist students with the writing process!
"We are an impossibility in an impossible universe."
Writing has been an important part of my life beginning with reporting for my community, high school and university newspapers many years ago. I grew up in Lamesa, Texas where my high school journalism teacher was a significant influence on my life. I attended Texas Tech University where I majored in journalism and English, graduating in 1986. I worked for a daily newspaper after graduation before my life turned in a new direction and I began work in church ministry. Writing has remained an important part of my occupation, however, preparing messages and studies for my congregations, and working on my graduate degrees. I completed a bachelor's degree in music at Houston Baptist University, and Master's degrees in Divinity and Christian Ministry at Wayland Baptist University. I have enjoyed teaching in the Writing Center at Wayland, and had the opportunity to teach writing in Kenya in 2015. I look forward to helping students at Clovis Community College achieve their very best writing through the campus Writing Center.
My name is Sandy Lyons and I received a bachelors in journalism from NMSU. Eventually I went back to school and received my endorsement in English and business education at ENMU and then a masters from Wayland Baptist University. I taught English, business, and journalism classes at the high school level for twenty years. For the past three years I have been teaching ESL classes at CCC, as well as assisting at the Writing Center. Teaching has been and continues to be a joy in my life, and I am thankful to be able to do what I love.
Locating grammatical errors, diagramming sentences, writing essays — all things that most people hate, but that a nerd like me loves! As a homeschooled kid, one of my favorite workbooks was Editor in Chief®, which honed my skills of detecting and diagnosing errors at a young age. That love continued into college, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts with Honors in the field of English from Wayland Baptist University.
I worked at the WBU Writing Center for five years, assisting both undergrad and masters students. I had the opportunity to work with students from diverse backgrounds, including foreign exchange students from Wayland's Kenya campus as well as students from Latin America, Germany, and Asia. I am delighted to once again offer my services at a writing center! I hope that my experience and my natural passion for writing will enhance the CCC community.
Outside of the writing center, I am a pianist and songwriter, aspiring poet and storyteller; and freelancer for editing, graphic design, and manuscript formatting. But my most important role is husband and father, and I adore my wife, Caitlin, and the five wonderful children we share.
Hello! My name is Bridget. I'm originally from California, but spent most of my life in Albuquerque where I developed a love for hot air balloon crewing and (occasionally) flying. I was desperate to escape after graduating high school, so I moved down to Portales where I received my bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in agriculture at ENMU. I am currently working through a master's degree in English at the same university and hope to pursue teaching in the future. I enjoy helping both people and animals and currently have my own flock of four rescued fur-children at home. Some of my hobbies include reading, writing, and attempting to be crafty

My name is Meriah Guillen. I am originally from Las Cruces, New Mexico, but I moved to the Clovis area about 6 years ago and I am happily settled here. I am currently attending Easter New Mexico University and hopefully captain my degree within the next year. I started working at CCC in the Writing Center about 4 years ago. Around the same time, I also taught English as a Second Language, and I am now teaching GED classes. It has been an exciting journey so far.
I have always enjoyed writing and I love helping others develop their written language skills. People have different perspectives and there is nothing more enjoyable than getting to know other cultures, backgrounds, and mindsets. The Writing Center provides this kind of interaction.
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, spending time outside, and being with loved ones. I love who I am and what I do. Life is an adventure and I never know what is going to happen one from one day to the next, but I hope that I am always ready for whatever comes my way.
