“We believe the commitment that Spaceport America has made, not only in our city and region but in our great state of New Mexico is unsurpassed. The value in bringing new high level employment impacts to our communities in more ways than you can quantify in one statement. It is well deserved!” stated Lorenzo Alba, Las Cruces Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Chairman.

“Spaceport America is honored to have received the Business of the Year award. We appreciate the continued support of our partners, community and New Mexico. Going to space is a team sport and New Mexico has one of the best teams in the world!” stated Dan Hicks, Spaceport America.
