“The Springs Resort is always looking at ways to help support the youth in our community,” according to Tom Inman, The Springs Resort General Manager. “From internships, scholarships, career day presentations, and educational field trips through the geothermal wetlands. Our guest, associate, and community vitality are paramount to our operations.” With Pueblo Community College (PCC) partnering with Pagosa Medical Center and Visiting Angels by bringing their first Health and Agricultural Professional Program to Pagosa this Fall, “it is rewarding and impactful to contribute a $1,000 scholarship toward kicking off this new college-level program.”
This year, an opportunity surfaced for The Springs Resort to further community involvement when owner David Dronet and Tom Inman connected with Emily Lashbrooke, Executive Director of Pagosa Springs Community Development Corporation (PSCDC). They asked how The Springs Resort could get involved, and she expressed a scholarship would be the best way to support PCC and the launch of their new program. Investing in a program with long-term community impact for the next generation of Pagosa Springs was an easy choice; a scholarship for this first-year program was born.
