NMSU Board of Regents approves naming in honor of Lori Paulson

During a special meeting of the New Mexico State University Board of Regents Wednesday, the board voted unanimously to name the NMSU Hall of Legends football team meeting room in honor of Lori Paulson.


Paulson is an NMSU graduate and an avid supporter of NMSU athletics. She has been an honorary captain of the NMSU football team since being diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer. University leaders complimented the continuing support Paulson gives to NMSU students and student-athletes. She and her family have also donated $100,000 to start the Lori Paulson Football Excellence Fund at NMSU to advance the program.
