SANTA FE – Rep. Nick Salazar, D-Colfax, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, will be recognized today, March 6, by Los Alamos National Security LLC for the “Lifetime Achievement Award” he received from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) earlier this year.
Salazar serves on the Board of Directors of LANL and will be video-conferencing into the board meeting of LANS LLC, to be officially recognized by LANL Director Charlie McMillan.
Salazar has been associated with the Lab for more than 60 years, as an employee, associate and now as a member of the Board of Directors.
He received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” in recognition of his profound and significant contributions during his years of service.

And I am humbled by the recognition I continue to receive. Who would have thought when I started working for the Lab more than 60 years ago, I would be video conferencing with the Board of Directors of LANS while also serving the great state of New Mexico?”
