Grandin’s early life and career are the focus of an award-winning HBO movie released in 2010.
Temple Grandin, world-renowned animal scientist at Colorado State University (CSU), was named among the 2012 inductees to the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame for her trailblazing work in livestock welfare and autism advocacy.
"I’m really pleased, and very honored,” says Grandin.
She and nine others will be honored during the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame 2012 Induction Gala on March 8 at the Denver Marriott City Center.
Grandin, who has autism, has been a faculty member in CSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences for 22 years. During that time, she has earned international acclaim as a pioneer in farm-animal welfare and as a champion for people with autism and their families.
