“This ceremony recognizes the tremendous impact our future educators will have on their students and the state of Colorado broadly,” said Dr. Kim Hunter Reed, CDHE executive director. “Educators are training the next generation of artists, engineers, scientists and health professionals that will power our economy and enliven our communities. They truly make all other professional possible. We want all teachers and administrators – and especially our young educators – to know Coloradans support and appreciate their invaluable work.”

“Making this honor roll is a significant accomplishment,” said Lt. Gov. Donna Lane. “You were selected not only for your academic achievement but for your impact around student success. Education is a cornerstone of what we do in our country and here in Colorado…We need smart, creative and dedicated educators in all of our schools.”
