Legends of the Spanish Peaks

The Spanish Peaks Community Foundation Legends of the Spanish Peaks was established to honor individuals who, by their extraordinary effort, have contributed to the betterment or enhancement of Huerfano County.

The following Legends will be honored in 2015:

Honorees are considered on the basis of contributions in the following areas: all facets of education; business and labor; arts and humanities; philanthropy; government; law; science and technology; and health and human services. If many nominations are received some names could be held back for another year. Selections are made without regard to gender, race, religion or national origin by a small committee from within the Spanish Peaks Community Foundation.

A compelling narrative of the qualifications of the nominee is necessary (not more than two pages typewritten). This should include specifics of what they have done for Huerfano County that has made it a better place to live, work and raise a family. This nomination should include work above and beyond just doing their job. Also there should be two additional letters of support from persons who have pertinent information about the nominee, including friends, relatives, historians or business associates.

The persons selected for the Hall of Fame do not have to be Huerfano County natives, nor do they have to be current residents. Posthumous nominations are also accepted as there may be a historical nomination of people who were significant to the history of the County.

Nominations should be submitted by August 15th as inductees are selected by early September of each year and are honored guests at the dinner in October. Their photos will grace the walls of the Huerfano County Courthouse alongside previous Legends.

Nomination form can be downloaded here.
