Honoring a Fallen Hero of Flight 93 by Helping Young Aviators

On September 11, 2001, Jason Dahl was one of the pilots on United Flight 93, whose courageous passengers and crew thwarted a terrorist attack. The plane crashed outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania, killing all on board. National tragedies touch us all, and sometimes we discover people with intimate connections to those events close to home. Steve Jacques (B.S., ’74) is one of them.

Outfitted for Success

Camie Haskins (B.S., ’05) returned to the Colorado mountain community she grew up in after graduating from Colorado State University. There, she and her husband, Casey, built a quintessentially rugged Western business and life.

Make More Realistic Resolutions

Because of this threat that is both local and global in scope, we are all at some level of the fight or flight response most of the time. In addition to the challenges, there have been some unique opportunities as we evaluate what our lives were like pre-pandemic compared to our present circumstances.
