UNM’s Anderson School of Management Foundation seeks nominations for its 26th annual Hall of Fame and Young Alumni Awards. The Hall of Fame Awards honor alumni who have demonstrated a commitment to continuing education and community service matched by their commitment to professional success.

The Young Alumni Award recognizes outstanding Anderson graduates 40 years or younger who have distinguished themselves in the short time since earning their degree.

“The Anderson School’s Hall of Fame event celebrates extraordinary alumni, faculty, and business leaders who have made significant contributions to the Anderson School and the New Mexico business community," Interim Dean of Anderson Schools of Management Craig White said. "The event also links to the future with proceeds supporting scholarships for current students, New Mexico’s next generation of business leaders.”
