The University of New Mexico Office of Student Affairs recently hosted the Louie Awards, an annual event that allows the campus community to nominate individuals for various awards: student service employee of the year, fellow of the year, service provider and student employee.
Eliseo "Cheo" Torres, vice president of Student Affairs, said, "The Louies are part of the Student Affairs comprehensive recognition program and are an excellent opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributors from within our division."
The 2013 theme, "All Roads Lead to UNM," was designed with a "Wizard of Oz" motif. The Student Affairs fellows took charge of organizing the event and creating decorations. Winners, the diploma reads, "Display the qualities of Courage, Heart and Intellect."
