We're expecting big things from Leanna Brazel, who graduates May 11. Leanna has been nominated for induction into Colorado's Future Educator Honor Roll. Curtis Garcia, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the Adams State Teacher Education Department, said Leanna's strong skills in professionalism, pedagogy and classroom management, combined with her dedication to all students, reflect the core values of the Adams State Teacher Education Department and make Leanna the perfect nominee for this honor. She is currently student teaching in Andrea Malouff’s, Alamosa Elementary kindergarten class. Malouff, who has been an exceptional mentor, believes Leanna's passion, inquiry based learning and dedication will have a true impact on her teaching profession. “She is able to build positive relationships with all students and colleagues that she embraces on a daily basis,” Malouff said. Brazel will graduate on May 11 and is eager to continue her great story as an elementary teacher in the San Luis Valley. Of her future students, she said, “I want to support them emotionally and socially, as well as academically.” Colorado's Future Educator Honor Roll honorees are recognized by the Colorado Department of Higher Education at an event in Denver as a lead up to Teacher Appreciation week in May. Congrats, Leanna, on your nomination. #ThisIsAdamsState #TeachersCollege

Big news: The Colorado Cancer Coalition has awarded Adams State University a two-year grant to continue the important research being conducted by ASU and San Luis Valley Health on the effects of exercise on the physical, mental, and social health of cancer survivors. "Nobody else is doing anything quite like this in the country,” said Dr. M. Penny Cooper with the SLV Health Oncology Clinic. Dr. Cooper has been instrumental throughout the research project in identifying patients to participate in the exercise science research. Adams State graduate student Danielle P. Smith launched the research in spring 2018 as part of her master’s thesis that looked at how exercise can be beneficial for cancer survivors. Smith was motivated to study exercise among cancer survivors after her sister died of cancer and Smith committed herself to improving the quality of life for those facing the challenge of a cancer diagnosis. “It was a really big undertaking for a master’s thesis,” said Tracey Robinson, Ph.D., professor in the Kinesiology Department (formerly Human Performance and Physical Education) at Adams State. “But it was her passion, and it’s very pertinent because exercise has been shown to be very beneficial for cancer survivors.” Read more about the research and on how to participate with Adams State and SLV Health on the research:

USA Track & Field has selected Adams State's Damon Martin to serve as the Men's Assistant Coach for the distance runners at both the IAAF World Championships and The North American, Central American, and Caribbean (NACAC) U23 Championships.

José Mix, a San Luis Valley native and first generation college student at Adams State, has been accepted into the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University. Jose graduates in May from Adams State with a degree in biology after completing the Adams State pre-veterinary program. "As a first-generation student, I feel the pride of being able to take the hard work and dedication that is instilled by my family and apply that to my studies at ASU, as well as being able to be the first in my family to receive a bachelor’s degree let alone pursue a professional degree," he said. What led him to Adams State? "I chose ASU because of our Biology programs’ reputation of producing successful and competitive students, ASU was also a more affordable option than many other Colorado schools." We've loved having Jose on campus and we look forward to his future success. #ThisIsAdamsState
