The CSU-Pueblo Foundation recently hosted the 2014 President’s Gala, where President Lesley Di Mare honored Rod Slyhoff, Joyce Lawrence and Mike Roumph for Distinguished Service to the University.

Slyhoff, the CEO/President of the Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce, has promoted the University across the state and region, while Lawrence, a former state representative, was the driving force behind the name change of CSU-Pueblo.Roumph, a former basketball student athlete at CSU-Pueblo, was recognized as the top alumni of the year for his volunteering to the CSU-Pueblo wrestling program and the Foundation Board of Director, as well as his financial contributions.

This 2014 Gala raised more than $85,000 for student scholarships and academic programs. The night featured the musical talents of CSU-Pueblo students and was highlighted by videos from CSU-Pueblo students and alumni thanking donors for their support of this great institution of higher education.

As we look back at the 2013-14 academic year, the CSU-Pueblo Foundation is proud of the fact that we helped provide scholarship dollars to more than 650 students.  What has been even more impressive to me is the fact that whether the scholarship covered all expenses, or was as simple as a book stipend, our students were grateful for the support the Pueblo community and the donors to CSU-Pueblo provide.

Thank you for all you do for CSU-Pueblo and we look forward to talking with you soon.
