Lynn Vosler, director of workforce development at Front Range Community College, has been named Volunteer of the Year by the Economic Development Council of Colorado.
The award is given to the person “who has demonstrated a multi-year commitment to the vitality, growth, and sustainability of the Colorado economy.”
Vosler was recognized for her extensive sector partnerships and engagement with private industry. Being a longtime supporter of economic development, she was integral in the success of sector partnerships – not only in her community, but throughout the Front Range. Sector partnerships are industry-specific, such as manufacturing, tourism, or health care.
Under her leadership and working with industry partners, FRCC has developed specialized trainings, such as Web Development Boot Camps, Medical Coding Boot Camp, a Clinical Documentation certificate program, and fast-track non-credit machining training
