GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – As two members serving on the Colorado Mountain College Foundation Board of Directors step down, three new members are coming on board.

Eileen Miller of Vail and Herb Feinzig of Carbondale have served two terms each on the CMC Foundation’s board. Their second, and final terms end June 30.

Miller, a former English and history teacher, says she will miss her association with the college’s foundation, which raises funds to support scholarships and capital projects at the comprehensive community college.

“This is really a special board,” she says. “Being a part of it provided a great experience for me to learn all about CMC’s different campuses.” The college has sites in eleven different locations across 12,000 square miles of north-central Colorado.

Feinzig was a vice president with GlaxoSmithKline for nearly 20 years before retiring in 1996. He says he’s seen Colorado Mountain College grow and mature during his time on the board.

Ed Hill of Steamboat Springs, a former chairman of Colorado Mountain College’s elected board of trustees, will once again serve the college by joining the foundation board. Hill’s history with the college goes back more than 30 years, when he helped secure funding for the Alpine Campus in Steamboat. He is retired president and chief executive officer of The First National Bank of Steamboat (currently Vectra Bank).

Ron Speaker and Rich Glasier, both of Carbondale, will join Hill.

Glasier is a consultant with the Aspen Community Foundation’s Executive Service Corps, which provides management expertise to Roaring Fork Valley nonprofits. He retired from Royal Caribbean Cruise Line as an executive vice president and chief financial officer.

Speaker has more than 23 years of professional investment experience, starting with Janus Capital Group. He recently formed his own company, Equus Private Wealth.

“CMC is a valuable and underutilized asset to the Western Slope,” Speaker says.

For outgoing member Feinzig, now is an exciting time for the foundation’s new board members.

“Colorado Mountain College needs to handle the greater demand for classes, more students and the need for more scholarships,” Feinzig says. “The college needs to continue to sell education as the great asset it is for all who receive it.”
