On Wednesday, August 8th, 2018, CEO Lori Canova and Board Chair Allen Ginsborg officially dedicated the “I Have A Dream” Building in honor of Irene Lopez Wessell.
Lori thanked Irene for committing her life to working with children and youth in Boulder County, saying “Irene’s impact in our community is impressive! She’s worked with Camp Fire Girls, Head Start, Boulder County Latina Women’s League, and AmeriCorps. She also spent 20 years at RSVP providing volunteers to school programs, intergenerational programs like “I Have A Dream” Foundation and she was awarded the USC’s Outstanding Award for Intergenerational Services in Boulder County.”
“Irene has also served on the Governor’s Commission on National and Community Service and served through the Bright Mountain Foundation. Today she continues her legacy as a Kiwanian to serve youth in our Boulder County community,” Canova said.
