MPA Alum Chris Herndon Profiled in CU Denver Today

From the article “Two CU Denver alums hold seats on the Denver City Council“:

Photo of Chris HerndonDenver City Councilman Christopher Herndon knows that being a leader means being a learner, which is why he enrolled at CU Denver. Herndon earned his Bachelor of Science in systems engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1999, and received his master’s in management from Webster University in 2003. After moving to Denver he earned his Lean Six Sigma certification from the University of Villanova. His latest achievement is a master’s in public administration (MPA) from CU Denver’s School of Public Affairs, which he began in 2011 after being elected to office.

“I believe it is important to continue to get any type of education that you can, because that just makes you a better leader,” Herndon said. “After getting elected in 2011 I thought it would be a great opportunity to go back to school. I thought a master’s in public administration would be very fitting, given that I had just taken on a new role in public service.”
