Linda Janezich Generation Now
Linda has had an amazing impact on the Fort Collins community through her work, especially in the mobile home parks and in the Generation Now nonprofit, where she works with under-resourced children. She heads the team to develop the curriculum, recruits other retired teachers as volunteers, sets and stages everything, teaches the kids and does it all with a genuine smile on her face.
Jane Stuart Estes Valley Investment in Childhood Success (EVICS)
Jane has served on the board at EVICS for 4 years, currently serving as the Board President. She works tirelessly to connect families to ALL the resources they may need in the community. Much of this she does on her own time, because she is so keenly aware of the fact that what happens to children in the early years will impact them for the rest of their lives.
