B.A. English, '87
The CSUN Alumni Association announced its first Distinguished Alumni Award back in 1981. In years since the Association has singled out scores of Matadors for the honor from among CSUN’s 350,000-strong lifetime graduate body, showcasing the University’s impact on the personal and professional lives of individuals, and highlighting the profound contributions of CSUN grads to regional and national business, education, arts, and culture.
Distinguished Alumni Award recipients in 2018 include the Honorable D. Zeke Zeidler, a judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court. Judge Zeidler ’87 (English), a friend and booster of the College of Humanities, notes his delight in joining the ranks of Distinguished Alumni honorees such as Frank del Olmo, Irene Tovar, the Honorable Linda Lingle, Cheech Marin, Larry Feldman, Bill Imada, and Judy Baca. “What they all have in common is the ongoing commitment to better our society, while also continuing to find time to support the wonderful work going on at CSUN,” says Zeidler. “I can only hope that I have been able to make a small fraction of the impact that each of them has.” Zeke Zeidler article continues
