Three people were inducted in the New Mexico Military Institute Hall of Fame Oct. 27 during Homecoming and Alumni Weekend events. S.P. “Chip” Johnson IV, left, an 1974 NMMI high school graduate, was honored for his achievements in his field of endeavor. He is president and chief executive officer and a co-founder of Carrizo Oil and Gas Inc., which has its headquarters in Houston. Prior to starting the business in 1993, he was a manager with Shell Oil Co. Dale Preston Laverty, whose plaque is shown in the middle, also was recognized for his career achievements. A 1954 graduate of NMMI high school and a 1956 graduate of the junior college, Laverty passed away in September 2016. His wife, Linda Ruiz Laverty, is shown accepting the honor on his behalf. Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Mark Quantoc, a 1980 junior college graduate of NMMI, was inducted into the Hall of Fame for having achieved a “flag officer rank,” which is a general or admiral in the U.S. military.
