Please join us in congratulating Richard Shigaki as the recipient of the September 1998 Asprey Award. The award is funded by a generous donation from Bob and Jo Asprey and given monthly in recognition of C&N employees who have displayed outstanding service. Bob was an employee of C&N during the 1970’s and 1980’s and still understands the challenges our university gives us.
In his five years at NMSU Richard has distinguished himself as a committed, personable manager who generates strong loyalty from his staff and exhibits high dedication to Computing & Networking’s mission. We all know how hard it is to manage our work with the constant interruptions and ’emergencies’ that occur but Richard is noted for his ability to keep his eye on the target. He will certainly need that ability over the next 12 months as year 2000 issues dominate the many projects coming due.
