Letter from the Executive Director

Dear Friends of PHEF,

Beverly SparksAs I enter my fourth year as the Executive Director, I am humbled to serve the foundation and continue the work of our predecessors that began in 1988 of removing financial barriers that might prevent students from gaining an education and employment.  PHEF helps students turn their educational dreams into goals and those goals into reality by providing scholarships for higher education to students in need from all backgrounds from Pueblo and Southern CO to assist them in achieving lifelong success.  All students should be afforded the opportunity to pursue the American Dream and it is imperative that we remain committed to this goal.

I want to thank my Board of Directors for all their hard work, dedication, and support. They are truly a group of individuals who are committed to our students and the work that we do. I also wish to thank our donors for your continued support and financial contributions. We believe great things happen when we work together toward the shared goal of improving the lives of our students and making our community a better place to live.

Beverly Duran
Executive Director
