Brian Young (In Memoriam)

Gresham Riley Award

Brian is the recipient of the 2022 Gresham Riley Award. Brian served as CC’s Vice President for Information Technology & Chief Technology Officer from 2013 until his death in 2021. During this time, he led the college’s COVID-19 response including serving as a liaison to El Paso County Public Health, in addition to serving as interim vice president for Advancement.

CC Board of Trustees Chair Jeff Keller ’91, P’23 said, “Brian was a strong and compassionate leader who dedicated himself to students, staff, faculty, and the success of Colorado College. He was devoted to human-centered problem solving, going above and beyond while always caring for those around him. He set an amazing example for us all.” In 2021, Brian and other members of CC’s COVID-19 leadership team received the Glenn Brooks Award for Courage & Innovation. A new President’s Leadership Award, the Brian Young Community Service Award, was introduced in 2022. It recognizes campus community members who “demonstrate a continued pattern of voluntary service to the college exceeding their job duties,” as Brian did.
