Honoring Cary Kennedy: A Note from Executive Director Liane Morrison

Dear Friend:

As an organization that empowers Coloradans who believe that we can and must do a better job of investing in our schools, Great Education Colorado values action over talk, leadership over timidity, creativity over resignation, and passion for improving education, even when the going gets tough.

That’s what we were thinking about when we began planning our “Inaugural Great Education Colorado Luncheon” and had to make the decision: Who should be the luncheon honoree?

The answer was easy and obvious: Cary Kennedy.

Action, leadership, creativity, and passion.  When it comes to public education, nobody embodies those attributes better than Cary Kennedy. Her accomplishments are remarkable: spearheading the successful citizen initiative in 2000 to reverse school funding cuts; crafting innovative solutions to Colorado’s budget knots; and designing the Building Excellent Schools Today (BEST) program, under which dozens of crumbling, unsafe school buildings throughout Colorado are being renovated and replaced.

Cary Kennedy has been a champion for public education like no other. We hope you will join us on September 21 to say thank you to Cary for all she has done, and all she will do in the future for the benefit of our students, schools, colleges and – as a result – our state and our economy.

Liane Morrison
Great Education Colorado Executive Director
