The First National Bank of Santa Fe, New Mexico Banquest Corporation and UNM recently hosted a reception at the Hibben Center for Archaelogical Research celebrating the generosity of Jack and Donna Rust.
Last year, the Rusts provided funding for three professorships in the field of ethics. The $1 million donation received a boost from state funding through Senate Bill 14, the Endowment for University Excellence, providing an additional $600,000 for UNM.
