Ed and Harold “Chub” Foreman

The Foreman Faculty and Staff Excellence Awards were established in 2012. The awards were made possible through a gift from New Mexico State University civil engineering alums and ardent college supporters Ed and Harold Foreman. The Foreman brothers are members of the Civil Engineering Academy and were listed among the Top 100 Distinguished Alumni from the College of Engineering during the centennial celebration in 1988. In late 2005, they made a major gift to the College of Engineering; establishing two professorships and an endowed chair in civil engineering. Their names were placed on Engineering Complex III in 2006.

The recipients of the annual Foreman Faculty and Staff Excellence Awards are nominated by their department heads and selected by the college assistant and associate deans. Faculty awarderd receive $1,000 and staff awardees receive $500.

“The Foreman brothers have been extremely generous to the College of Engineering over the years. This particular gift stands out as it exemplifies their support of the important contributions that faculty and staff make toward our mission of providing an excellent engineering education,” said College of Engineering Associate Dean Patricia A. Sullivan.
