The Two Rivers Community Foundation has new volunteer board members for the new year.

“It allows all of us who are passionate about where we live to direct financial resources to worthy local causes with the opportunity to leave a legacy to our community,” said 2RCF board member Dave Sturges.

Sturges, a 25-year Glenwood Springs resident, is a consultant offering strategic planning, meeting facilitation and alternative dispute resolution specializing in land-use and environmental issues. Sturges retired after practicing law for 30 years. He has volunteered with the Roaring Fork Transit Authority, United Way, LIFT-UP, the Garfield County Jail Advisory Committee and the Glenwood Springs Transportation Commission. He serves on the Glenwood Springs Planning and Zoning Commission.

Don Click, owner of Financial Resource Planning since 1976, is the past president of 2RCF and continues to serve on the board. He is active in Mountain View Church and is a member of the Glenwood Springs Chamber Association. Click is a certified financial planner and a securities representative of the Commonwealth Financial Network. He has volunteered as the president of Garfield Economic Development and has worked with the Re-1 Roaring Fork School District’s finance and accountability committees. Click passed the position of 2RCF president to Sheri Scruby.

Scruby has been involved in volunteer work throughout her 11 years in Glenwood Springs. She is active with the Valley View Hospital auxiliary, Friends of the Library, Boy Scout Troop 225, the Glenwood Springs High and Middle schools and the Chapter AO PEO. Scruby is an avid bookseller and will open Book Grove in downtown Glenwood at the end of the month.

The group’s new vice president, Terri Miller, joined the foundation’s board in 2003. Most recently, Miller was the office administrator for S2M Construction Co. She has been treasurer of the Sopris Barracuda Swim Team since 2000 and is spearheading fund-raising for Let’s All Pledge for an Aquatic Center at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. As a parent of three, Miller has volunteered time with St. Stephen’s religious education program, as well as various school and sports activities.

C.C. “Jitter” Nolen moved to Glenwood Springs 10 years ago with his wife, Patricia, and has served as the foundation’s treasurer since its inception in 1999. Nolen retired after 15 years as vice president of the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation in Oklahoma City. Prior to 1994, he served as president of North Texas State University in Denton and vice chancellor of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. He is a founding member of the Roaring Fork Education Foundation and serves on the board of the Community Concert Association, as well as the Glenwood Springs Arts Council. He is active with the Thunder River Theater Company, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and the 100 Club.

The board’s new secretary, Judy Huston, joined the 2RCF board in 1999 because it “can make a big difference in the welfare of our community.” Huston grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley and has lived there her entire life. After teaching second grade in Glenwood Springs for 31 years, she retired but still volunteers at Sopris Elementary School and tutors its after-school STAR program. She also sits on the board of the Glenwood Springs Community Concert Association.

The 2RCF’s purpose is to promote active local philanthropy and to help build a stronger community. The main goal is to match caring people who have resources with caring people who have solutions.
