Why I partner with the CSU Pueblo Foundation
“Donations are an emotional thing for most people, and as I look at how fortunate I’ve been, I want to give back to help young people in their pursuit of an education”
– Timothy Simmons, Alumnus 1969
Alumnus Timothy Heath “Tim” Simmons graduated from Southern Colorado State College, now CSU Pueblo, in 1969 with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications and a minor in business.
As the son of legendary Southern Colorado State College basketball head coach, Harry “The Chief” Simmons, Tim grew up on the SCSC Orman Campus and identifies as a Pueblo boy, no matter where he lives. His love of CSU Pueblo and its athletic programs can directly be attributed to his dad and time spent with him on campus.
In addition to giving his time to his alma mater, Simmons has given financially to establish the Richard Pavlic Scholarship in the 80s, The Harry H. and Mary Elizabeth “Bodie” Simmons Memorial Scholarship, and the Sam Batey Scholarship to give back to the players at CSU Pueblo.
