The Robert Lessard Memorial Chapter of the AIPG is the newest component of the New Mexico section. Located on campus at the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, it is the brainchild of junior undergraduate and chapter president Nicolas “Nico” Harrison.
Since its inception last fall, the club has seen its membership grow to 36 students in just two semesters. With a stated goal of getting students familiarized with what it takes to succeed and thrive in the Earth Science industry, and activities such as field trips, professional networking, mentorship and coaching, and resume workshops, this swelling in student membership is welcome, but hardly surprising.
At the core of all these activities, spinning many plates and wearing many hats, is Nico. His inspiration, boundless energy, and motivation drive the new chapter to ever greater heights. This enthusiasm and public service has recently been acknowledged by the school’s faculty in the form of a Student Appreciation Award, a well-earned accolade. Further acknowledgment of these many successes came quite recently during the New Mexico section’s recent meeting, which the new chapter hosted on campus. Attending this was AIPG president Doug Bartlett, who accompanied the sections field trip to a local carbonatite outcrop and commended the chapter, and Nico’s efforts therein.
Nico’s hard work and service to the AIPG will continue, as his leadership will undoubtedly see the chapter to further growth, renown, and excellence. It is our privilege to acknowledge his efforts. Thank you, Nico, from a very grateful chapter.
