Loyal Broncos : The Gribbles

Supporting Boise State runs deep in the Gribble family. Vicki Gribble (BS, radiology technology, 1979) and Dennis Gribble (BA, economics, 1975, MBA, 1978) are longtime donors. Like their parents, the Gribble children are also ardent supporters of the university. Two of their three daughters, Heather Carlson (BA, communications, 2005, MA communications, 2011), and Angie Gribble (MPH, 2011) are alumni.

The legacy of former Boise State associate athletic director and alum Lori Orr Hays (’83) is embodied in the memories she left behind; kindness and compassion towards students, a strong leader, supportive colleague, and a loving wife, mother, and friend. Although she died in 2013, her passion for her studies, Boise State and its students live on today in the form of a student scholarship.


True Blue Scholar alum Ximena Bustillo, Multiplatform Political Reporter with NPR, and fellow former Statesman reporter Nicole Foy launched the Voces Internship of Idaho, which provides paid internships in local newsrooms for Idaho Latinos pursuing an interest in journalism. The program, funded by crowd-sourced donations and the Scripps Howard Foundation, has a goal of raising $20,000 to place as many interns as possible at an hourly wage of $15.
