Student Honors Council Members


Tan Huynh


Biology Major and Chemistry Minor
"I am an aspiring future medical student, and this organization means so much to me and my academic journey. Outside of school, I work at Children's Hospital and play a lot of sports. I enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, whitewater rafting, kayaking, disc golfing, and learning how to fly fish, but skiing is definitely my life! Let's get to know each other!"


Mike Warner,

Vice President

Business Accounting Major
"I am super excited to be your Student Honors Council Vice President this year. I joined the honors program as a freshman, and can I say that was the best decision I could have ever made! I was met with so much encouragement and opportunity from the moment I stepped into the honors house, and that’s what inspired me to get involved with SHC. I am a summer camp counselor who loves to hike 14ers, and I am a business accounting major with the goal of travel. If you ever see me, please say hi! I love to meet new people and make new friends!"


Albany Lammey


Psychology Major and Criminal Justice Minor
"I cannot wait to be the treasurer of the Student Honors Council this year. I am also a student employee and work as an orientation leader, which has allowed me to get even more involved on campus. Don't be afraid to say hi if you see me around."

Kristin Nergaard


Aviation and Aerospace Science Major and Fire and Emergency Response Administration Minor
" I am honored to be serving as secretary of the Student Honors Council again this year. I joined the Honors Program in the Fall of 2020 in the heat of Covid. Even through those difficult times, I was inspired by the community I found within the program. I am excited to continue to foster that environment. In addition to the Honors program, I am also a part of Air Force ROTC. Outside of school I love hiking, flying airplanes, and watching racing with my family and friends. Please never hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything, or if you just want to discuss Formula 1 in obnoxious detail with someone."


Marissa Erickson

El Comodín

Anthropology Major and IDP Major
"The Honors Program has been one of the most meaningful experiences/communities during my time at MSU Denver in the last five years and so I am thrilled to finally be able to give back as Comodín in my last year here. I am passionate about community-making, inclusive spaces, and supporting varied experiences and perspectives---which is one of the reasons I love the Honors Program so much. Outside of school, I like to make art, play music, take photos, garden, play with my dog, camp, learn about plants, play board games, and meet new folks."
