Dave Young, an adjunct faculty member at the University of Colorado Denver School of Education and Human Development, recently was sworn in as a representative for State House District 50, which covers a portion of northeastern Colorado, including Greeley.

Young, who teaches in the information and technologies program, replaces Rep. Jim Riesberg, who was appointed the State Insurance Commissioner by Gov. John Hickenlooper. Young was sworn in July 28, a few days after being selected for the position by a vacancy committee.

He earned his master’s degree in information and learning technologies from CU-Denver in 2000. Part of his CU duties included designing and delivering online instruction to teachers and corporate trainers.
