Alumni Award Past Recipients

The CHHS alumni awards program offers an opportunity for one or more CHHS alumni nominees from any department or school to be recognized for their achievements. The two awards sponsored by the CHHS Executive Leadership Council, and the CHHS Emerging Leaders Council are the CHHS Outstanding Alumna/Alumnus Award and the CHHS Emerging Leader Alumna/Alumnus Award.

The CHHS Outstanding Alumna/Alumnus Award honors outstanding alumni from the College who, through their distinguished careers and/or service to the university, state, nation, or world, have brought honor to Colorado State University and to themselves.

The CHHS Emerging Leader Alumna/Alumnus Award recognizes recent graduates (within the last ten years) of the College for accomplishments made in the areas of career, service, and/or volunteer efforts that have brought honor to the individual and to the College/University.

Upon selection, award winners and nominators will be notified by the CHHS Dean, or designee. The award winner will be encouraged to join CHHS during their annual homecoming event. The previous award winners include:
