Preeminent students at a preeminent urban university
President’s Award winner Ariadna Ochoa Magallanes and Provost’s Award winner Levi Appenfelder exemplify the best of MSU Denver’s students.
Ochoa Magallanes immigrated to Denver from Coahuila, Mexico after witnessing violence in the streets in front of her house. Her path led to MSU Denver where she is double majoring and serving the community to help others realize their potential.
As an infant, Appenfelder suffered a stroke that led to him developing cerebral palsy. The 4.0 student has overcome multiple medical procedures over the past 25 years. During one of his visits to the hospital, he found his career path: becoming a medical illustrator.
Bill Carnes, an associate professor in the MSU Denver Department of Management, remembers his friend and former colleague Madison Holloway, recipient of the 2017 MSU Denver MLK Peace Award.
