                     TRIBUTE TO JACKIE KERBY MOORE

 Mr. BINGAMAN. Mr. President, today I wish to recognize Jackie 
Kerby Moore for being named one of the 2012 Distinguished Alumni from 
New Mexico State University. This is an honor given by the New Mexico 
State University Alumni Association to individuals who have 
distinguished themselves and thus bring honor and distinction to NMSU.
  Moore received an athletic scholarship to play at NMSU and continued 
on teams after college, winning the Women's Fastpitch National 
Championship in 1984 with the Arrow Butane Flames from Las Cruces.
  I have had the honor to work with Moore in her role as the executive 
director of the Sandia Science & Technology Park since its inception in 
1998. This 200+ acre technology community is located adjacent to and 
affiliated with Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM. In her 
role as executive director, she oversees all aspects of the park--
including the management, marketing, recruiting of tenant companies, 
and securing of funding for infrastructure improvements. The park now 
serves as home for 25 companies employing almost 1,500 people, and 
total investment in the Park exceeds $253 million.
  Under Moore's leadership, the Sandia Science & Technology Park has 
received the Technology-Led Economic Development Award from the U.S. 
Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, Outstanding 
Partnership Award from the Federal Laboratories Consortium Mid-
Continent Region, President's Award from the National Association of 
Industrial and Office Properties, and Roadrunner and Pinon Awards from 
Quality New Mexico. The park has also been recognized with Public/
Private Partnership Awards from the New Mexico State Land Office, Mid-
Region Council of Governments, and the International Economic 
Development Council.
  Moore serves as an advocate for New Mexico State University and lends 
her expertise for the advancement of the Arrowhead Research Park. She 
is a strong supporter of Arrowhead's Entrepreneurship Center and 
mentors staff and faculty. She has been an involved alumna by 
supporting College of Business endeavors and engaging with faculty.
  I ask that my colleagues join me in congratulating Jackie Kerby Moore 
and thanking her for her commitment to education and technology. It 
gives me great pleasure to acknowledge her years of service and much 
deserved success.
