The award winners exhibit selfless and outstanding service to both the university and the student body.

Sohaib Soliman, president of the SGA, presented three awards: faculty, staff and student appreciation.

This year's faculty recipient is Dr. Frank Reinow, professor in Management Departmen. Soliman, said Dr. Reinow won the award largely based on his recent participation in the New Mexico Legislative Lottery Scholarship Summit that the SGA hosted.


Soliman praised Dr. Reinow's willing to help and to continue to help with the compilation of the summit report.

The 2003 staff recipient is Annine Gabaldon, advisor to the Student Activities Board

Soliman said Gabaldon always works closely with all student groups and is always willing to help out in any way she can.


She personally designed shirts and carried out events when the Student Activities Officers were unable to do so.

Victoria Ramirez won the student award. Soliman said Ramirez has been active with the Society of Women Engineers and served two years as a senator for the SGA. He said she has consistenly been an active volunteer on campus.

 

Gus Tolley, the President of the Graduate Student Association, presented the organization's annual awards to a student and a faculty member.

 

Alisa Shtromberg

Shtromberg earned her master's in physics with an emphasis in instrumentation this year.

She served in the GSA for over a year as the Information Officer. During that time, she completely renovated the GSA website, making it much more aesthetically pleasing and easier to navigate.

Shtromberg was also instrumental in establishing a filing system for GSA documents, as well as organizing many, if not all of the files herself. Even though she is no longer an officer of the GSA, she continues to volunteer her time to the organization, recently chairing the GSA/CGS joint Spring Picnic Committee, which put on the most successful spring picnic to date.

 

Dr. Steve Simpson

Simpson, of the Communication, Liberal Arts and Social Science Department won the Faculty Appreciation Award.
Dr. Simpson received his Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire and joined New Mexico Tech faculty in 2010.
Dr. Simpson has been spearheading many programs at New Mexico Tech that are designed to help with the thesis/dissertation writing process.

Twice a year Dr. Simpson organizes the Thesis/ Dissertation Bootcamp, a week-long intensive writing program where you write for 5-6 hours a day.

He teaches Technical Writing, Communication in the Sciences for graduate students, and ESL, in addition to working with the New Mexico Tech Writing Center.

He is also co-coordinator of the graduate student 'Learning Community' initiative through the Graduate Studies Office.
Dr. Simpson has also been working towards starting writing groups within individual departments. As the thesis/dissertation writing process can be quite daunting, the GSA truly appreciates the effort Dr. Simpson has made in helping graduate students across the campus.

He also hosts a special meal for International students each fall, where he roasts green chile, in order to introduce new students to New Mexico cuisine.
