February is an exciting month for the CSU. University trustees, the chancellor, presidents, administrators, faculty and staff will speak at CSU Super Sunday events at more than 100 predominantly African American churches throughout the state. The events reach more than 100,000 churchgoers and are part of CSU’s outreach to educate students and families about the requirements to successfully enter college and obtain a degree.
As the CSU talks to potential students, it is critical to be able to point to those who have graduated and excelled in life. CSU speakers and outreach staff will distribute a flyer showing more than 70 African American distinguished alumni. Below are just a few examples of these leaders and role models.
Distinguished for Philanthropic Magic
Distinguished for Community Action
Distinguished for Grammy Gold
Distinguished for Public Service
Distinguished for Educational Excellence
As the CSU visits churches across the state this month, we hope to find the future students who will become the next generation of alumni to carry on the proud tradition shown here.
Note: All of the alumni above will also be featured though online profiles for the “Working for California” project coinciding with the CSU’s 50th Anniversary.
