16 Nov Boettcher Scholar Alumni Board bids farewell, welcomes new members
By Jose Martinez III
Boettcher Scholar Alumni Board
Someone once told me that gratitude means nothing if we do not take the time to express it. With this sentiment, we on the alumni board would like to take a moment to say thank you to two very important groups of people. With the first group, our gratitude comes with an additional farewell as these individuals will not be returning to the alumni board this coming year.
These individuals have all served alongside us with grace and determination, and we are forever grateful for their contributions and their friendships. We wish them nothing but the best as they continue their personal and professional journeys, and we feel honored to have them be a part of our network of Boettcher Alumni. Thank you, Alex Ruehle, Kara Penn, Randy Clark, Kay Stafford and Blanca Trejo.
With our second group, our gratitude comes with an additional welcome as these individuals have elected to join our 2017 Boettcher Scholar Alumni Board. We are ecstatic to work with these incredible individuals, and we want to say thank you ahead of time for your passion and energy which will help propel this board forward even further. Without further ado, please welcome our newest members.
- Alex Gordon, 1997, University of Denver; chief operating officer and chief compliance officer at Syntrinsic
- Bob Yandrofski, 1982, Colorado School of Mines; president of development and chairman of Fundamental Artists
- Carly Stafford, 2012, Colorado College; admissions counselor at Colorado College

This board could not exist without the efforts of all of our members, and the staff at the Boettcher Foundation. We wish to extend one final thank you to all of our members and to all of the Boettcher alumni out there. Each and every day, you do incredible things that make our organization and network stronger and stronger.
