The Camera supports many great causes in our community, including Impact on Education, the Foundation for Boulder Valley Schools. Impact is proud to announce the creation of a new annual award: the Blake Peterson Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is named after one of local education’s most fervent supporters, who passed away last year. It recognizes an individual whose own passion for education and learning mirrors that of the award’s namesake. The foundation is asking for your help in choosing the first recipient.

I had the pleasure of serving on the board with Blake Peterson and can’t think of a more meaningful way to honor his service and legacy. The award will be presented at the 25th anniversary of the Impact Awards on March 15. Tickets for the event will be on sale soon.The deadline to submit your nomination is Feb. 7.

For more information on the awards event and to submit your nomination, go to impactoneducation.org (click on the Events link).
