NMSU Recognizes Researchers Who Generate $500,000 Or More

Brooke Tou and Shelly Bucher of Extension Family and Consumer Sciences receive a "Millionaire" award from NMSU President Garrey Carruthers.

  New Mexico State University President Garrey Carruthers and Vice President for Research Vimal Chaitanya recognized university faculty members and staff earlier this month who have generated $500,000 or more in research funding during the past fiscal year, 2013.

"These top staff and faculty researchers are leading the university's efforts to attract vital funding for critical research projects," Chaitanya said. "I appreciate their excellent work and am pleased that we are able to recognize their efforts."
