Many who know Stephanie Hanenberg B.A. ’93, M.S. ’03, assistant vice chancellor for health and wellness, would say that her efforts for UCCS over the course of the pandemic have been truly heroic.

Fittingly, Hanenberg has been nominated for this year’s American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming’s “Community Hero of the Year” award. Her nomination is rooted in her exemplary service in designing and implementing measures to keep the UCCS community safe amid the pandemic and her dedication to helping underserved populations gain access to essential services.

“There is no greater feeling than someone telling you how you have made a difference in their life or a patient saying they are alive because of you,” Hanenberg said. “Serving others fuels my passion for the work I do and has led me to career opportunities that I could have never imagined. I am truly honored by this nomination and thankful to be a part of such an amazing community.”

The American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming will recognize 5 local heroes at the American Red Cross Rocky Mountain Heroes Celebration. To learn more about Hanenberg’s nomination and to cast your vote, please click here.
