Chris Landt receives Carl Faubion Award

New Mexico State University Library employee Christopher Landt recently received the first Carl Faubion Outstanding Library Staff Employee of the Year Award in a ceremony at Zuhl Library.

Landt, an exempt employee in the NMSU Library's Systems Department, was honored for his accomplishments as a member of the photocopier replacement project task force.

"Thanks to Chris's diligence, creativity and dedication, the library administration is pleased with the smooth transition and the savings in cost," said Carol Boyse, head of the systems department.

The Carl Faubion Award will be presented annually to an exempt or non-exempt NMSU Library employee who exemplifies excellence in customer service, exceptional contributions to the library, innovation and creative thinking in problem solving or contributions which have reduced operating costs or resulted in administrative efficiencies.

The award was made possible by former NMSU President James E. Halligan and Mrs. Ann E. Halligan, who established the Carl Faubion Memorial Endowment for the NMSU Library in 2007. The endowment was established in memory of Carl Faubion, a Mesilla Valley farmer and former NMSU regent, who passed away on Oct. 29, 2005.
