San Diego Magazine has named San Diego State University President Elliot Hirshman as one of San Diego’s “50 People to Watch in 2012.”
The magazine released its annual list of the most influential people in San Diego in its January issue which hits newsstands Dec. 23.
People to watch
Leading SDSU’s universitywide fundraising campaign and his efforts to boost the university’s research endeavors are just a couple of the reasons San Diego Magazine says Hirshman is one to watch.
Also included on the list are Aztec alumni:
- Kris Michell, president of San Diego Downtown Partnership
- Jeff Gordon, creator of the website and app, taphunter.com
Last year, SDSU basketball player Kawhi Leonard and baseball coach Tony Gwynn made the list.
The complete 2012 list is published on San Diego Magazine’s website.
