Yolanda Ortega
Yolanda’s “retirement” might seem exhausting to some. The former Vice-President of Student Affairs for Metropolitan State University of Denver, Yolanda’s encore includes acting with the renown Latino theatre company, Su Teatro; cohosting Canción Mexicana, a Sunday morning radio show featuring music from Mexico, New Mexico, Tejano, and Colorado; and serving on numerous nonprofit boards. That hasn’t stopped her from deciding to run for the University of Colorado Board of Regents, so that she use her 35+ years of higher education experience to “create access for all Colorado students who have the dream of receiving a university degree.”
