Recipient, William Randolph Hearst/CSU Trustees' Award for Outstanding Achievement
Vicki Storberg looks forward to attaining her bachelor of arts degree in recreation and leisure studies with a certificate in therapeutic recreation in May 2007. Returning to college 18 years after high school, Vicki is involved in numerous programs including mentoring and tutoring. She is the president and vice president of several campus organizations and does community service with a variety of profit and nonprofit organizations. She went to Capital Hill in 2005 to lobby Congress on behalf of the therapeutic developmentally disabled population to help design and implement programs and services for clients and their families. Vicki strongly connects to the struggle to overcome the substantial obstacles that her clients and their families face. She draws from her own personal journey, both successes and failures, to build empowerment and hope for their future.
