Name the Mustang Contest

And now, introducing...CHASE, the Cal Poly Mustang!

Congratulations to CLFSA member Catherine Trujillo from Robert E. Kennedy Library for being selected in the Name the Mustang Contest!

The name Chase is inspired both by our community of scholars who chase their dreams, and Margaret Chase, the first woman to lead at
Cal Poly.

Here's Catherine and her daughter celebrating with President Armstrong at the
Cal Poly Homecoming game.

Congratulations Catherine!
