Karen McKinnon Poetry Awards Endowed Fund

In recognition of National Poetry Month, we would like to take a moment to honor Karen McKinnon. In 2016, Karen's commitment to fostering young talent and perpetuating love for poetry led her to endow the UNM Foundation with annual poetry awards for undergraduate students, administered by the English Department. Her passion for UNM and poetry lives on through her efforts to ensure their continuity.
