Marketing Professor Scott Sherwood, who has been impacting the lives of MSU Denver's business students since 2004, retired at the end of the Spring 2019 semester.
As the founding Director of the MSU Denver Center for Professional Selling, he led the strategy that built MSU Denver into one of the "Top Sales Universities" (the only one in Colorado), as recognized by the Sales Education Foundation.
We thank Professor Sherwood for everything he has done for MSU Denver over the past 15 years and congratulate him on his well-deserved retirement!
Congratulations to Michelle Baros! In Spring 2019, she earned her BS in Management—more than thirty years after she first enrolled at MSU Denver.
Her grandfather relocated from the historic Auraria neighborhood to help make way for the Auraria campus, so Michelle was eligible for the Displaced Aurarian Scholarship, covering her tuition and fees. This enabled her go back to school full-time and complete her degree.
After becoming a finalist in the 7-Eleven W.E. Take the Lead contest for female entrepreneurs, she will open her own store in Arvada this summer.
