Colorado State University President Tony Frank will lead a community outreach visit to Colorado’s northeast and southeastern plains, plus make a visit to the southern Front Range Aug. 22-25. President Frank will connect with alumni, prospective students, parents, community leaders, interested residents and Ram fans in 10 different communities including Greeley, Fort Morgan, Yuma, Sterling, La Junta and Colorado Springs.
Frank will be joined by CSU officials including Kristi Bohlender, executive director of the CSU Alumni Association, and Tom Milligan, vice president for external relations. They will be meeting with county commissioners, Rotary clubs, Colorado State University Extension staff, Colorado State Forest Service personnel, Agricultural Experiment Station employees, as well as hosting several public events for alumni, Ram supporters, and community members.
