William Hybl, chairman and CEO of the El Pomar Foundation, and William Tutt, chairman of the Colorado Thirty Group, were recognized for their support of the Department of Defense yesterday during the first Commander’s Community Leader Commendation Ceremony.
General Victor E. Renuart, Jr., Commander, NORAD and USNORTHCOM, presented the commendations.
“When you look at what the community has done for the Soldiers, the Sailors, the Airmen, the Marines, the Coast Guardsmen and their families, it’s pretty hard to find a place that is as positive and supportive as Colorado Springs,” Renuart said. “I think these first two recipients truly symbolize what has made Colorado Springs such a special place to be.”
A plaque commemorating the program and the first two awardees will be displayed inside the USNORTHCOM headquarters building.
