Terry Considine, former Colorado Senator and Aimco CEO, was honored at the Adam Smith Award Dinner on October 10 for his commitment to economic education in Colorado schools. The event took place at the Seawell Ballroom with 265 friends attending.
Considine is a life-long entrepreneur and businessman, who, in addition to his two terms as senator, has served as Chairman/CEO of five public companies, including Aimco and the Considine Companies. He is also one of the co-founders of Club for Growth, anorganization committed to advancing economic growth and limited government.
Considine gave a moving acceptance speech on the generational impact of economic literacy, and the legacy of Adam Smith. He emphasized how free markets guarantee free people – with freedom to work, speak, live and worship as they choose.
Economic Literacy Colorado, an educational nonprofit providing economic and financial literacy to teachers and students, hosted the Adam Smith Award Dinner.
“It was a privilege to honor Terry for his contributions to our community and free enterprise system,” said Debbie Pierce, president and CEO of EconLitCo. “Thanks to Terry and our generous sponsors, ELC’s classes and programs will continue to provide important life skills – economic and financial – to teachers and students across the state.”
The Dinner was sponsored by Lanny and Sharon Martin, along with Marcy and Bruce Benson, Terry Considine Family, Brian and Caryn Deevy, Meg and Jamie Duke, Buz and Sherri Koelbel, Mike and Gloria Komppa, Sturm Family/ANB Bank, Daniels Fund, El Pomar Foundation, and many others.
