Congratulations, Leona!

Published: January 5, 2018


In celebrating their 35 years covering Boulder Valley Business, BizWest selected 35 people and teams they felt had been influential in shaping the region into the desirable place it is today. Imagine! ambassador extraordinaire Leona Stoecker was one of the folks they selected, and we couldn’t agree more.

Leona is highlighted on page 17, and they even mentioned her involvement with the Imagine! Foundation.

Congrats, Leona, and thank you for all you have done, and continue to do, for Imagine! and for your community.
