  1. I found this article to be very lacking in information. Congratulations to Ms. Erickson on this award but what is it about her and her company that makes her deserving of it? The article says that she has an unwavering commitment to providing jobs in Colorado Springs. That is great but how many employees does this business have? This article does not even say anything about what type of business this is.
