CALEXICO — Mayor Victor Carrillo and professor Nancy Livingston will be given "Monty" awards by San Diego State University's Alumni Association.
Each year, the association gives out awards to a select group of alumni and faculty.
The list of 19 winners was announced this week. A ceremony will be held in San Diego in April. Carrillo and Livingston were the only two local award winners.
Carrillo was recognized as a distinguished alumnus while Livingston was honored as a faculty member.
Carrillo graduated from the SDSU-Imperial Valley campus in 1974. He did his post-graduate work at the campus as well, earning a master's degree in education in 2000.
Carrillo was nominated by Imperial Valley campus alumni because "he has transferred knowledge gained at SDSU to many others as a leader and role model," according to the nomination letter sent to the Monty committee.
