Inside Stories


Student is Eighth to Receive Trustees' Award

Elizabeth Coudright, BA in psychology, 2004, received the prestigious 2003 William R. Hearst/CSU Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement.

She is the eighth CSU, Chico students to receive the award since 1993 and one of only 14 awardees in the state. The Trustees' Award provides financial support to students who show superior academic performance, community service, and personal accomplishments in the face of personal hardship and challenges. Each student honored will receive $3,000.

Coudright, now 41, returned to school to fulfill her goal of finishing her college education. She was a graduate student in social work and marriage and family therapy.

Coudright actively supports her community, especially services that benefit women. She is co-director of the Vagina Monologues, the proceeds of which go to such nonprofit organizations as Rape Crisis and Catalyst.

“I was astounded when I got the call about the award,” said Coudright. “I’m motivated to see others succeed and achieve their goals and fulfill their dreams. Maybe it will help others dream big when they see what I’ve done.”
