CMC President Dr. Armen Sarafian and University of Colorado President Dr. Gordon Gee.

Staff and faculty arranged the first comprehensive transfer agreement between a two-year college and the University of Colorado at Boulder. CU President Dr. Gordon Gee rode the train to Glenwood Springs to sign the agreement with Interim CMC President Dr. Armen Sarafian. At a light-hearted farewell party on June 30, 1987, Sarafian was “ticketed” by Glenwood Springs Police Lt. Dion Luke for “speeding” down the road of higher education. This was a reference to the President’s reputation for being fast, both at work and on the road.
