Lifetime Achievement Award
The Honorable Keith King
The Colorado League of Charter Schools presented former state Sen. Keith King with a Life Time Achievement Award on Friday, March 2 for his longstanding dedication to improving education for students and families throughout the state of Colorado.
Recently, the League celebrated 25 years in existence at the annual Colorado Charter School Conference March 1 and 2 at the Denver Marriot Tech Center. This year, the League recognized King, the founder and administrator of Colorado Early Colleges, for his substantial contributions over the years for the charter school community.
“We are honored to present Keith King with the League’s first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award for his life of service, leadership and creative social entrepreneurship," said League President Ben Lindquist. “Over time, we hope to identify other candidates for the Lifetime Achievement Award who can stand up to the remarkable precedent that King has set.”
In 2007, King started Colorado Early Colleges, a network of charter schools that has grown to four campuses up and down the Front Range from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins. Through innovative legislation that King helped to get passed and enacted, Colorado Early Colleges is providing thousands of high school students with the opportunity to take courses for college credit towards two- and four-year undergraduate degrees while earning a high school diploma.
“I am especially proud of my work with the great staff of dedicated employees of Colorado Early Colleges,” King said. “We have students accomplishing great things because they are believed in and the believe in themselves to be champions. All students can succeed, No exceptions, No excuses.”
