Great Education Colorado Luncheon

Great Education Colorado’s annual luncheon each year honors a public education supporter. Past honorees include:

  • Cary Kennedy, Denver deputy mayor;
  • Elaine Gantz Berman, state board of education member;
  • George Sparks, president and CEO of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science;
  • Donna Lynne, President of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Colorado.

In 2014, for the first time Great Ed gave out a new award created in fond memory of our former Board Chair, Vicki Mattox, to recognize and celebrate those who have dedicated their lives to educating the students of Colorado. The first recipient of this award was Dr. Cynthia Stevenson, former Superintendent of Jefferson County School District.

On October 1, 2015, Great Ed will honor Bob Deibel, President of OfficeScapes with its annual award and Colorado’s School Superintendents with the Vicki A. Mattox Education Award.
