League of Women Voters of Estes Park Honored at Statewide Convention
At the bi-enniel convention of the League of Women Voters of Colorado recently held in Boulder, the Estes Park League was awarded the Colorado League of the Year award for strong community involvement and visibility. This award shows the dedication and work of our membership in service to Estes Park and placed us first among the 19 local Leagues in the state. In addition, Donna Shavlik, a long-time member and leader with the Estes Park League, was awarded the first ever Eva Fifkova Lifetime Achievement Award. This award recognized Donna for her life’s work of improving women’s lives and communities. Donna spent nearly a quarter of a century working for, and ultimately leading, the American Council on Education, Office of Women in Higher Education, promoting women’s equality and leadership. Her efforts helped lead to the implementation of Title IX legislation. We are lucky to have such an illustrious crusader for women here in Estes Park. The incoming president of the State League, Barbara Mattison, described the Estes Park League as “dynamic, fresh, strong and successful” in her most recent message in the Colorado Voter, the State League’s quarterly newsletter.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization. We promote informed and active participation in government. Membership is open to anyone – female or male – of voting age.
