140th Founders Day: Monfort family presented with inaugural Founders Day Medal

—————This article was originally published in Today@Colorado State on Feb. 11, 2010 ————————————-

The Monfort family was presented with the inaugural CSU Founders Day Medal in honor of their great contributions to the university and their leadership on behalf of CSU and higher education, including Warren Monfort and Kenny Monfort’s service on our governing board. The Monfort Family Foundation in 2002 gave CSU $5 million – at the time, the largest single gift in university history – to support the Monfort Excellence Fund. The Monfort Excellence Fund has had a tremendous impact on CSU and local communities through its scholarships for exceptional students; support of outstanding faculty; by bringing accomplished leaders from business, government and the arts to campus to interact with students; and public lectures delivered by international leaders.
