Anderson School Celebrates its 21st Annual Hall of Fame and Inducts its Latest Members
January 25, 2010
(Albuquerque, NM) The University of New Mexico Anderson School of Management Foundation Board is pleased to announce its 2010 Hall of Fame inductees. The inductees are: Henry A. Alaniz (MBA, 1996), Carol Mayo Cochran (BBA, 1984), and James Lawrence Novak, (MBA, 1996).
"These candidates are selected for their professional success, contribution to community involvement, and an ongoing commitment to continuing education," said Anderson Foundation Board Advancement Committee Chair Sheri Milone. "This year we received nominations from an extremely talented pool of business leaders making the selection process very difficult. They were all very deserving, but these three candidates came to the top of the committee's list."
The Anderson Foundation Board will also recognize two young alumni under the age of 40 - Dr. Carolyn Massiah (BBA, 1998) and Dr. Rob Melendez (MBA, 2008) - who have already distinguished themselves early in their careers and show promise of continued growth in the years ahead.
"This annual tradition allows us to celebrate the very best the Anderson School of Management has to offer," says Anderson Foundation Board Chair Debbie Gorenz. "And it confirms what we already know, that Anderson graduates are making a difference in New Mexico and beyond."
Professor Catherine Roster is the recipient of the 2010 Faculty Community Leadership Award. All full-time faculty members are eligible and must have demonstrated leadership in enhancing the Anderson School's visibility and relations with the business community by creating connections, providing leadership and being actively involved.
"Our faculty members are the foundation of our students' success, and some achieve a very high standard for community engagement, as well," said Anderson Dean Douglas M. Brown. "This award is an important way to recognize those multi-talented faculty leaders."
The first ever Distinguished Service Award will go to Michael Gallegos, President and CEO of American Property Management Corp. This award honors a non-Anderson graduate who has displayed exceptional interest, dedication, and/or service to the Anderson School.
The honorees were recognized at the 21st Anniversary Hall of Fame reception and dinner on March 9, 2010 on UNM's main campus in the Student Union Building.
