Nominations close Oct. 31. To nominate candidates, visit https://arrowheadcenter.org/entrepreneur-hall-of-fame/.

The NMSU Entrepreneur Hall of Fame honors NMSU graduates who have demonstrated success in business creation and growth, brought entrepreneurial concepts and practices into their workplaces, and/or contributed to their regions’ entrepreneurial climates. Nominations representing all fields, sectors and disciplines are encouraged.

The 2021 Hall of Fame inductee, Richard Leza, was selected due to his 40-plus years of achievement in finance, consulting, manufacturing, engineering, medical devices and application software. Leza, a first-generation college graduate, also co-founded a nonprofit dedicated to creating a network of successful Hispanic entrepreneurs and to providing opportunities for Hispanics in high-tech environments.

Past hall of fame honorees include Dino Cervantes and Frank Seidel.
