There are moments when hearts sink and time seems to stop. It happened here on Thursday not too far from our office in the small, close-knit community of Aztec.
According to published reports, two students lost their lives after a gunman entered Aztec High School. Police say the shooter is dead, as well.
We grieve for everyone affected by this tragedy – for those who suffered immeasurable loss and for the teachers, kids, administrators and emergency responders who now cope with the aftermath.
WPX employees have children who attend Aztec High School, and we have many neighbors and business partners whose children attend the school, too. We stand ready to help our friends heal.
WPX has been a part of this area for nearly 35 years. It’s a special place where people genuinely love and look out for each other. Our prayer is for the community’s comfort, courage and strength.
