Masterson Receives Top Award from University Advancement Organization

Ed Masterson, associate vice president for university advancement was honored with the Tribute Award, the top award from the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District VII. The award recognizes members who have maintained the highest standards of professionalism in their advancement careers and shared their expertise with members of the profession.

CASE provides information and training to more than 38,000 education professionals in alumni relations, communications, and development. It is the largest international association of educational institutions. District VII includes institutions from Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.

"Stated simply, this is one of the highest awards one can receive from one's peers," said Paul Moore, vice president for University Advancement and Student Affairs. "I can think of no one who deserves it more."

Masterson has been in his current post at the university since 1994. Prior to that, he was director of university relations and development for 23 years. Among Masterson's many accomplishments are launching the annual giving and planned giving programs, planning and implementing various fund raising campaigns, and selecting and implementing an online, interactive database management system.

Masterson earned his bachelor's and master's degrees from CSU, Chico. He was a Fellow at Harvard's Institute for Educational Management and the Glacier Institute for Management in Ruislip, England. He also holds elementary, secondary, and administrative teaching credentials, and was a teacher and administrator at Bidwell Junior High School and Chico High School before becoming Chico State's first full-time alumni relations director in 1967. In 1968, he was named assistant to the president and director of University Relations.
