It's official! On Friday May 8th the new Bureau of Geology building was dedicated to Jessie and Chuck Headen longtime supporters of New Mexico Tech. The Headen Center is named for former residents of Socorro, Chuck and Jessie Headen, who bequeathed the bulk of their estate to New Mexico Tech. Chuck Headen passed away in 2011, three years after his wife. The estate, managed by the Headen Trust, was settled in late 2014, and was valued at more than $11.5 million. Tech received the first annual payment from the Trust earlier this year for more than $500,000, all of which supports the university’s scholarship fund.
