Twenty-Year Service Award

Sen. Pete Campos, Rep. Rick Miera, Rep. Danice Picraux, Rep. Jeannette Wallace

The purpose of this award is to recognize those state legislators who through their 20 years of dedicated public service have made a difference to the lives of all New Mexicans. The University of New Mexico Alumni Association awards bricks with the legislators’ names. They are permanently installed in the alumni walkway at Hodgin Hall. We applaud all four legislators for their years of service representing the people of New Mexico and thank them for their work on behalf of UNM.
