CSU, PBS & Temple Grandin
The World Needs All Kinds of Minds
by: Mary Watterson, Fort Collins Dog Walker & Pet Sitter
CSU is teaming up with Rocky Mountain PBS to put on yet another special documentary about our very own Temple Grandin. Ms. Grandin, the subject of the recent HBO biopic played by Claire Danes, is an esteemed, world-renowned professor at CSU.
Through her personal struggles with autism, Grandin's insights single-handedly ushered in humane practices for cattle and farm animals - turning the industry upside down. Simply put, Grandin's mind completely changed the mind of an entire industry.
The new documentary, entitled "Temple Grandin: The World Needs All Kinds of Minds," is set to air 4/15 @ 1:30 on Rocky Mountain PBS channels, just in time to mark National Autism Awareness Month in April. It can also be viewed after its debut by visiting www.colostate.edu/templegrandin.
Our hats off to Prof. Grandin for her tireless, humanitarian work in the field of education and animal welfare!
