Excellent work and vision - tying together Colorado's: 1. Ranching, agriculture, and technology heritage, 2. The unifying needs of our rural and urban regions, 3. The growth, water, and health challenges of our communities. As the grandson of a Buena Vista area rancher (failed but valiant effort), son of an outdoorsman and food-health enthusiast, and as a technologist, business leader and non-profit enthusiast, the National Western Center's vision is exactly what we need. Not just for the betterment of our state citizenry, but as a model and beacon across the country and globe. We must aspire to such high impact change and innovation across all the topics covered, all the better to be done with such a solid foundation.
