Mayor Steve Bach has recognized Colorado College Senior, Tiffany Calabaza, with a Spirit of the Springs “Celebration” Certificate for bringing renewable energy to her hometown of Kewa, New Mexico.
Donna Nelson, Economic Vitality Specialist at the Office of the Mayor is shown here presenting the Certificate.
“Tiffany is a great example of the excellence and vision our young people possess. Tiffany worked with advisors and fellow students to make a meaningful improvement for family and friends living hundreds of miles away. Our goal is to develop and engage talented young leaders like Tiffany,” said Mayor Bach.
The White House recently recognized Tiffany for persuading tribal leaders to convert a community windmill into a solar water-pumping station, thus creating a more efficient method to supply drinking water to livestock. The project will continue in collaboration with Colorado College students and Kewa tribal members.
Mayor Bach recognizes noteworthy achievements with Spirit of the Springs “Celebration” awards when a volunteer activity or noteworthy achievement brings great honor and pride to the City of Colorado Springs or a citizen is distinguished at a state, national or international level.
