Tex Anderson “bleeds green and gold,” reflecting his relationship with Colorado State University for more than 50 years. Anderson and his wife, Joyce, are part of a four-generation legacy at CSU. He and his family hold a deep respect and value for education; four generations of their family have attended Colorado State.
Anderson earned both his bachelor’s (’57, Vocational Agriculture) and master’s (’63, Agricultural Education) degrees, after which he joined the faculty of CSU’s Department of Vocational Education, now the School of Education, in 1963. Anderson was a leader in vocational teacher education, making significant contributions to the field across the state and the nation. His CSU tenure spanned 33 years, including 10 years as department head, until his retirement in 1998.
The Anderson family is continuing its significant investment and commitment to educational access and success by establishing the Tex Anderson and Family Scholarship endowment, to benefit teacher licensure students beginning in 2013-2014.
