"Metro State Pride" award

Danyette Hardin

Magna Cum Laude graduate Danyette Hardin ('07, management) wins this year’s “Metro State Pride” award for her unwavering pride in Metro State College. Not only did she found and act as president of the Metro State College of Denver Alumni Business Networking Club, but she has also been involved with other organizations that promote the excellence of the College’s undergraduates. Hardin is involved in Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), which has a global mission of bringing “the top leaders of today and tomorrow to create a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business.” According to Professor Ronald L. Taylor, from the Department of Management, “Ms. Harding is an eminent example of the core values embraced by the Alumni Association. It is difficult to envision a more selfless and tireless graduate of Metro State.”

Special Recognition:

Auraria Health Center Alumni Staff

This year we have awarded special recognition to the Auraria Health Center Alumni staff. They are: Bill Mavromatis ('79, history), Debbie Shuman ('05, humanS performance and sport), Garr Rice ('09, nursing), Steffana Nohavickova ('06, IDP), Gia Valente ('08, history), Linda Wilkens-Pierce ('91, human services), Nathan Neilson ('07, accounting) and Martha Eaton ('94, psychology). According to Health Center Director Steve Monaco, “Each of the team members come in contact with thousands of students, faculty and staff throughout any given year and are instrumental in serving the 24,000+ clients who access care at the Health Center annually. On a daily basis I see each of these dedicated employees over achieving as they fulfill their job duties.” Collectively, he adds, this team is committed to students, dedicated to the quality of their work, willing to go the extra mile time and time again, and they are positive, energized, and dedicated to the College’s mission. “This team,” Monaco states, “personifies what it means to give back, and each employee is a shining example of what it means to be Metro State graduates.”
