Distinguished Service to New Mexico Military Institute
Alumni who, through their dedicated and outstanding service and devotion to NMMI in positions of high responsibility positively influenced NMMI over a number of years.
Dedicated and outstanding service and devotion to NMMI transcends a satisfactory performance of normal duties. A nominee’s devotion and dedication must be significant not only by his or her high standards but also by their own personal example. He or she must have adhered closely to the officially recognized customs and traditions of NMMI. He or she must have shown a willingness to devote their own time or resources to further the aims and goals of NMMI.
Positions of high responsibility include not only positions of policy formulation and decision-making, but also includes positions in direct contact with cadets influencing their academic achievement, enhancing their military training, strengthening them physically, or developing their moral character. Service to NMMI over a number of years should be considered to be for at least a quarter of a century. A lesser time might be a consideration if the overall impact of their service was of great significance. To be avoided is the popular individual whose pleasing personality did little more than make him a “good ole’ boy”. Service on the NMMI Foundation Trustees or Board of Regents is considered a position of high responsibility.
