Darris Cumming of Julesburg is recipient of the Colorado State University Alumni Association’s Honor Alumni Award for support to the College of Agricultural Sciences.

Cumming has served on various agricultural-related committees within CSU. In addition, he has actively recruited potential students for the university. He continues to carry his dedication to the student experience at CSU through his involvement with three scholarship committees.

“Few people in Sedgwick County give more time or money to their local community,” said Gary Landcaster, CSU Cooperative Extension director for Sedgwick County. “Darris also has been a consistent, dependent and positive contributor to Colorado State and agriculture.”

A 1959 graduate of CSU, Cumming serves the Northeastern Colorado State Alumni Association as a 40-year member and prior president. In addition, he’s a founding member of the CSU Beef Club, chairman of the Sedgwick County CSU Alumni Association and helped to secure donations for a livestock trailer for Cam the Ram, the CSU mascot.

While a student at CSU, Cumming served as president of the Ag Council and chairman of public relations for the Student Union Board, and was a member of the judging team and the CSU Livestock Club and vice president of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity, among other accomplishments.
