CSU-Pueblo's first DSF Graduate
"Attending Colorado State University-Pueblo was my first choice when considering what school I would like to pursue my college career, and I still believe it to be my best choice. The moment I started classes at CSU-Pueblo I began to grow. I found myself in the skills, professionalism, and knowledge I was presented with. The faculty and staff at CSU-Pueblo continuously awarded me with great opportunities, and wanting to give back to my school I continuously accepted them. When Joseph Marshall offered me a position with the Denver Scholarship Foundation I knew it was one door I could not allow to close. The Denver Scholarship Foundation not only provided me with a reliable, and helpful scholarship, but they provided me with a job. I fell in love with my position as a Peer Tutor-Mentor; it became a part of who I am because it was created for students who are like me. Among many other things DSF also offers support financially, mentally, and more than anything genuinely. As a recipient of the Denver Scholarship I never had to stress over my finances and was able to focus more on my education. I was also able to reach out to other students and be a great role model. I owe my current success as an early graduate and my future success as a graduate student to CSU-Pueblo and The Denver Scholarship Foundation."
