Locals are also invited to thank a noteworthy fellow citizen through the GSCRA’s Citizen of the Year Award given in the name of Dean Vogelaar, a longtime chamber director and the award’s first recipient. The award is intended to honor an individual (or in particular instances a married couple) who makes a substantial contribution to Glenwood Springs. As a result of the nominee’s efforts, the community should have received notable benefits and become a better place to live and work. Deb and Mike Wilde were the 2022 recipients of this prestigious award.
The ATHENA® Leadership Award is presented to a leader that is honored for professional excellence, community service, and for actively assisting women in their attainment of professional excellence and leadership skills. The ATHENA Young Professionals award recognizes an emerging leader who gives back to the community and serves as a role model for young women. The most recent ATHENA® and ATHENA Young Professionals award recipients were Julie Olson and Ashley Mauldin, respectively.
