When: Tue., Sept. 9, 7 p.m. 2014
Colorado State University-Pueblo has the hot ticket for this evening — green chili harvest aside. Dr. Juan Andrade is one of those people whose accomplishments you read about in school: His leadership in the Latino community has earned him recognition from both the U.S. and Mexican governments, and he's helped bring democracy to 10 countries. As CSU-P's second guest in this year's Distinguished Speakers Series, he will share his experience at 7 p.m. in the Occhiato University Center Ballroom (2200 Bonforte Blvd., 719/549-2151). Admission is free, but donations are appreciated. — Griffin Swartzell
