Each year the CSU Pueblo Foundation and Alumni Association announce the Distinguished Young Alumni awards bestowed upon alumni from each college who are under the age of 35. These individuals have enhanced the reputation of the University and their respective colleges through outstanding professional achievement, personal accomplishment, and service to CSU Pueblo and the community. 

For 2020, the awards go to:

  • Garrison M. Ortiz  from the Malik and Seeme Hasan School of Business
  • Kelly McLean from the College of Health, Education and Nursing
  • Shanna M. Farmer from the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences
  • Alejandro (Itzam) Marin, MD  from the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics

Also Tracy & Dave highlight a few CSU-Pueblo alumni and former student-athletes who are currently playing in the NFL!
