Dr. Barbara Ann Smith: Glen Gallegos for CU Regent

I highly support Glen Gallegos for University of Colorado Board of Regents. He has enormous experience in the field of education, which spans over 26 years. Just one example is his commitment to keep CU affordable and accessible for Colorado students by incorporating partnerships with various business organizations and creative entrepreneurs to assist with offering real work experiences and scholarships. Providing CU with a vision of global competitiveness in the free market place with programs that will give each student a more than adequate education to compete globally and contribute to the economy of this great nation is one more example of Mr. Gallegos’ rich educational background. Furthermore, when Mr. Gallegos was on the Colorado Mesa University Trustee Board, he was instrumental in establishing an engineering program through a partnership with Colorado University.
