PUEBLO – Several Colorado State University-Pueblo staff were honored as part of the 86th annual 2015 National Convention for League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) held in July in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

The convention convenes the national delegates of LULAC to discuss issues, set policies, and elect the organization’s national leaders. It is the only convention in which participants representing Hispanic communities from across the country determine the positions and strategies of a national Latino organization. 

Jennifer DeLuna, CSU-Pueblo director of diversity and inclusion, was inducted into LULAC’s Women’s Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who espouse LULAC'S philosophy of creating positive change through personal integrity and ethical leadership and who has sustained a clear vision for the future of the Hispanic community that reflects LULAC’s vision. 

Victoria Obregon, regional coordinator of the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP), was recognized as the 2015 “Mujer Con La Falda Bien Puesta” Award Winner. The Mujer con la Falda Bien Puesta award recognizes an outstanding Hispanic woman who has distinguished herself through her professional accomplishments and/or community involvement. 

Five CSU-Pueblo students representing the Latino Students Unidos (Rosa Ramos, Rocky Ford; Celeste Molina, Pueblo; Rogelio Arreguin-Mancera, Colorado Springs; Maria Zavala, Pueblo; and Fredlina Atencio, Pueblo) attended various workshops on ethical leadership, resume renovation, and conflict resolution, among others, and were able to speak to distinguished legislators such as Senator Hatch and celebrities such as Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, Actress Angelica Vale, and Latin Grammy Award Winner Michael Salgado. The students also met with youth from around the country to engage in conversations around civic engagement, social justice, and mentoring youth to attain degrees of higher education.​

Colorado State University - Pueblo is a regional, comprehensive university emphasizing professional, career-oriented, and applied programs. Displaying excellence in teaching, celebrating diversity, and engaging in service and outreach, CSU-Pueblo is distinguished by access, opportunity, and the overall quality of services provided to its students.
