Fall 2020 Signature Student

  • Kevin Ortiz Hernandez

    I am very humbled to be named a COBE Signature Student. I am graduating this spring with a degree in marketing and a minor in entrepreneurship management. I have grown up in the local area all of my life. I decided to stay at Boise State due to my love of the city and what Boise State had to offer. Throughout my time at Boise State, I served on the executive board of Alpha Tau Omega, was proudly working as a peer mentor for the TRIO Rising Scholars Program, served as the TRIO Club’s financial officer and played as many intermural sports as I could! The connections and experiences I have made at Boise State have been life-changing. As a first-generation college student, this not only serves as inspiration for me to keep working hard. But for incoming students to see what possibilities can be achieved. I am very excited to see where the future takes me. Go Broncos.

    I am humbled to be acknowledged with the Signature Student award. As a transfer student during the spring 2020 semester that was moved online due to COVID-19, I was unsure of how I would fit into COBE. With the support of outstanding faculty and staff members, I have been challenged and engaged during my pursuit of a degree in marketing and a minor in human resource management. I will be graduating in December of 2021 and can’t wait to pursue my career remembering the many lessons that I have learned as a Bronco!

    I am honored and humbled to be named a Boise State Signature Student. I am graduating with a degree in marketing, a minor in entrepreneurial management, and a certificate in applied leadership. I came to Boise State without realizing how much I would love the city, the College of Business and Economics, and all the lifelong friendships and connections I have made. Throughout my time at Boise State, I served on the executive board of Alpha Chi Omega, was a proud member of the business academic honor society Beta Gamma Sigma, played on the Boise State Women’s Lacrosse Team, and interned as a data analyst for Albertsons Companies at the corporate office. Following graduation, I plan on continuing my work in the grocery industry with PepsiCo, in the Frito-Lay division office as a district sales leader. I cannot express enough gratitude to all my professors and mentors who have helped me throughout my journey and encouraged me to pursue my passions. Go Broncos!

    I am a senior at Boise State but am originally from Vancouver, Washington. Along with my marketing degree, I have a minor in entrepreneurial management and plan to graduate in Spring 2020. I came to Boise State because it felt like home to me, and I have fallen more in love with the city and the university as time has gone on. Currently, I have two internships to balance along with my schoolwork; the first is as an Athletics Marketing Intern for Boise State Athletics, and second as a Digital Marketing Intern for PlexTrac, a Boise-based cybersecurity software company.
