FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The Ram Club Board of Directors, a volunteer organization that supports the scholarship fundraising efforts of CSU Athletics, has selected its 2010-11 leadership. Associate athletic director/development Mike LaPlante made the announcement Monday.
Connie Hanrahan, owner of Mantooth Co., has been elected as the president. Ben Morgan (’99) of Farmer’s Insurance has been elected vice president and Joel Cantalamessa (’95), owner of Black Diamond Concepts, has been elected secretary.
The following supporters will join the Ram Club as directors : Len Carpenter (’68, ’76), Kevin Keefe (’81), Tony Phifer, Ryan Yoder (’95) and Ryan Wulff. They will be joining incumbents Kevin Unger (’92) and Aaron Eide, along with current board members Linda Clark (’83), Cody Fullmer, Ann Hutchison, Aki Palmer (’02), Rex Stahla and Norm Warner (’65).
The Ram Club Board of Directors works diligently to generate scholarship funds for the nearly 400 student-athletes competing in the 16 sports offered at CSU. The group’s tireless efforts to promote and recruit members to the Ram Club help strengthen the CSU athletic department.
The athletic department would also like to introduce Randy Kinder as the new annual fund director. Randy is a 2004 graduate of Colorado State and has worked in annual fundraising at the University of Mississippi and the University of Colorado over the past six years. As annual fund director, Kinder will be responsible for managing and growing the Ram Club while overseeing the Ram Club Board of Directors.
Kinder replaces Dan Johnston, who moved to the University of North Texas to become associate athletic director/development.
The Ram Club, with nearly 2,000 members nationwide, is the official support group of CSU Athletics. Funds raised from Ram Club membership help offset the cost of student-athlete scholarships. Ram Club members get exclusive access to the best seats at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium and Moby Arena as well as priority parking. Moreover, Ram Club members get the satisfaction of knowing that their support provides CSU student-athletes an opportunity to earn a first-rate education while competing at the top level of collegiate athletics.
