April 16, 18 and 19, 2009: KRWG Aggie Almanac Webcast: An Unmanned Helicopter and The Domenici Institute Gets Its First Director (Garrey Carruthers)
It looks like a toy, but what you’ll actually be seeing in this week’s program is a recently donated quarter million dollar remote controlled helicopter (UAV) that NMSU students will be using as they study aerospace engineering.
Also, we get an update on NMSU’s plans to construct a new policy center named for former New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici. Garrey Carruthers, Dean of NMSU’s Business College and former NM Governor, has been appointed the first Director of the Domenici Institute.
Our Amazing Aggie of the week is Pat Conn, She has more than doubled the number of scholarships available to education students.
