SOCORRO, N.M., November 13, 2002 -- New Mexico Tech President Daniel H. López has been named one of the state's top 100 "power brokers" by New Mexico Business Weekly in its recently published 2003 POWER Book.

The POWER Book is an annual magazine that recognizes New Mexico Business Weekly's selections for the 100 most influential members in the New Mexico business and political communities.

"Improvements in federal and state funding, program expansion and better compensation for faculty and staff have earned López the respect of his peers," the POWER Book profile on the Tech President states.

Earlier this year, López was honored by the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government as one of its first recipients of the William S. Dixon First Amendment Freedom Award.
