Mandela Washington Fellow, Ibrahim, and El Pomar Fellows Trevor Zalkind, Ryan Burton, Emily Padgett, and Matt Nuñez, were in Denver today with Posner Center for International Development and The GrowHaus for productive conversations about community development!
The High Country Council met with six grantee organizations to learn more about their work to serve youth in the High Country region. It was a wonderful day for coming together to discuss unified goals surrounding out of school time for youth!
Spencer and Julie Penrose's great granddaughter visited the Foundation today; she thanked El Pomar's team for keeping the family legacy alive! A joyful moment occurred when she saw a painting of her great grandmother and "Pitty Pat", the dog she loved during her childhood.
