Dave Guinther Honored with Distinguished Alumni Award

Guinther-DAA-Bio_resizeDave Guinther received a CSU “Distinguished Alumni Award” during Homecoming October 5th, 2017. Dave is not one to easily accept the spot light and only did so to bring recognition to the Champion Campaign/Heritage Project and promote the CSU Viking Swimming & Diving program. He is a leader and makes everyone around him better for his presence.

Dave and his wife Jane invited the Heritage Committee, coaching staff, two current team members and friends to the award dinner, an amazing event that honored the 12 DAA recipients for 2017.

We are so proud of Dave and everyone who contributed to the Champions Campaign/Heritage Project as well as CSU giving day, an event where he has lead our friends, alumni, team and athletic department to the front of all other CSU colleges.

No one is more deserving than Dave Guinther for the Distinguished Alumni Award he received based on his career, community service and especially his impact on CSU Athletics. Guinther-1972-national champion_resizeHe exemplifies the very best of Cleveland State University.

Dave’s 3-minute thank-you video highlights his relationship with Bob Busbey, and honors those who donated their time, treasures and talents to the Champions Campaign and Heritage Project.

  1. Wally, I perfected my back turn in that locker room shower floor. (..or was it Fenn?) It’s hard to ever remember Bob’s pool as anything but spanking new. But that was 45 years ago! Wow. Put me down for $125 Enjoying So. Carolina. Joe
