New Mexico State University Library employee Kristina Martinez recently received the 2010 Carl Faubion Outstanding Library Staff Employee of the Year Award in a ceremony at Zuhl Library.
Martinez, the Library’s Development Officer, was honored for her accomplishments with the development program.
Library Dean Elizabeth Titus said, “She has infused our development program with energy and enthusiasm, and has led or contributed significantly to strategic projects. She has explored and implemented new and creative fund-raising events. She has made the Library a model for donor stewardship, and her genuine appreciation for the Library and its staff have attracted a positive response despite a decidedly negative economic climate.”
The Carl Faubion Award is 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 the late Carl Faubion, Mesilla Valley farmer and former NMSU regent.
