Milton E. Proby Cultural Heritage Room
In 2006, as an extension of the Emerging Leaders Program, El Pomar established the Milton E. Proby Cultural Heritage Room at Penrose House. This room is dedicated to preserving and documenting the contributions of African-American, Asian, Hispanic/Latino and Native American individuals from Southern Colorado. Reverend Proby was one of the first civil rights leaders to have profound influence in the campaign for equality in southern Colorado.
Each year a different ethnic minority leader is honored. A selection committee reviews applications to select an honoree.
