Claudia Martinez-Pureco, a third-year Chico State student, won the 2016 California State University Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement.

Martinez-Pureco, a concrete industry management major, was picked from students all over California by the Board of Trustees.

She is a first-generation college student from Michoacán, Mexico and she recognizes that Hispanics and women are too-often underrepresented.

Martinez-Pureco is able to pursue her education at Chico State because of The California Dream Act. She has enriched the university by becoming involved with industry conferences, volunteering as a student ambassador and peer educator.
