In 2010 Colorado State University – Pueblo Announced Blackwell President’s Leadership Award
PUEBLO – Student leaders at Colorado State University-Pueblo will receive additional recognition and a cash award thanks to the generosity of the Blackwell and Titus families.
Homer Blackwell, Dennis Blackwell, and Janice Titus have established an endowed award, the Diane Blackwell President’s Leadership Award, to be presented annually to a student leader who “displays exceptional leadership skills, is very involved with the campus community, and contributes to make CSU-Pueblo a better place.” The award honors the memory of Diane Karen Blackwell, who passed away in May of this year.
“My mom was an inspiration, my best friend,” said Janice Titus. “She not only inspired me, but almost each and every person she came into contact with. I would like her memory and legacy to continue to inspire our future leaders of America.”
The Diane Blackwell President’s Leadership Award will be presented to a student at the annual student leadership recognition ceremony in April/May. The award will be given to an outstanding student leader from a pool of nominations.
