Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Every spring at the Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Luncheon, the College of Business highlights an entrepreneur who has made a significant impact on our community. This year, we are excited to honor Mr. David Jenkins.
Founder of Nor'wood Development Group, David has been a long-time steward of our community. With a philosophy of sustainability, economic revitalization and community advancement, David is truly a transformational leader, and his work is seen throughout the city. Under David's leadership, Nor'wood has been key in the development of the First and Main Town Center, Interquest Marketplace, Plaza of the Rockies and the Powers Autopark (just to name a few). Moreover, Nor'wood actively sponsors programs such as "Art on the Streets" and UCCS' Gallery of Contemporary Art in creating community and inspiring future generations.
In addition to his business, David is an ardent supporter of several local charities and social initiatives. He is a 38-year member and past president of the East Colorado Springs Rotary Club and a 37-year member and past president of the Pikes Peak Range Riders. He is an active member of First Presbyterian Church and currently serves as an elder trustee.
Please join me in honoring David Jenkins at the Lifetime Entrepreneurship Award Luncheon on Friday, May 9, 2014 at the Gallogly Events Center. For more information on the LEA Award Luncheon and to purchase tickets, please visit the event website at www.uccs.edu/LEA. Special credit is due to our alumni leadership who play a critical role from planning the event to bringing it to fruition year after year. A special thanks to all our sponsors for supporting this exciting award luncheon.
