Hastings College to honor top-achievers at its annual Honors Convocation on May 7
Hastings College will hold its annual Honors Convocation at 10 a.m., Friday, May 7 in French Memorial Chapel.
Convocation speaker, Erin (Crump-Bertram) Seedorf, will present “Who’s Driving?”
Seedorf is a 1999 Hastings College graduate and Bronco Award winner. She is the program manager and study coordinator for the Colorado Chew Tobacco Collaborative Initiative project at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Cancer Center in Aurora, Colo.
She is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado, School of Public Health. Her research and support for the Colorado Chew Tobacco Collaborative Initiative project has implemented a statewide community-based participatory research process with Colorado communities to identify specific chew tobacco concerns, and has developed potential policy initiatives to address those concerns. Her original research helped to procure the grant that established the Colorado Chew Tobacco Collaborative Initiative project.
Spearheading tobacco prevention, education and intervention for several years, Seedorf has managed projects for the Colorado youth-led Get R!EAL program and the Colorado State Tobacco Education and Prevention Partnership.
The Hastings College Honors Convocation recognizes graduating seniors receiving the prestigious Bronco Award and Who’s Who honor. The Bronco Award, established in 1924 by the editors of the Bronco yearbook, is the highest, non-academic honor Hastings College bestows. The Who’s Who honor has been given at Hastings College since 1940 and is awarded annually to no more than 10 percent of the graduating class. Only those students who have made substantial contributions to the college are considered.
Other top-achieving students, faculty and members of the Hastings College community receiving honors and awards for their success this 2009-10 academic school year will be announced at Honors Convocation. Those winners will be revealed in separate embargoed press releases.
