Leadership Evergreen

We are so proud to announce the 2020 Leader of the Year is BETSY HAYS of Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice


As President of the Evergreen Chamber until mid September, Betsy showed exemplary leadership and was a champion for local businesses during one of the most difficult years our businesses have ever faced. She initiated new programs that were instrumental in promoting businesses in the mountain community, and continued to strongly support our area nonprofits. Thank you for all you do Betsy!

The Leadership Evergreen Class of 2019-2020 is excited to have the water filling station installed! It will be ready for use in the spring when there is no danger of freezing. Look for the ribbon cutting date as spring approaches.

The Class had to put its  project, “Keep the Green in Evergreen,” on hold due to COVID for several months this spring/summer. Their efforts to bring fresh water to downtown for both our residents and visitors is becoming a reality!

The Class of 2017 had a wildfire danger sign built on Evergreen Parkway in 2018. Due to hazardous weather conditions, a truck hit the sign in 2019 but the rebuild is complete!

Thank you to Steven at Brook Forest Stone & Landscaping and Todd at Zuni Signs for the build and re-build! Thank you to Rotary Club of Evergreen for funding this project in the beginning!



Leadership Evergreen (LE) is a non-profit organization that connects people within the Evergreen, Colorado area and surrounding mountain communities in a dynamic way. Since the first graduating class of 1996, there have been over 100 graduates of the program and that number continues to grow.

The purpose of LE’s year-long module structured program is to broaden community awareness, strengthen leadership and team-building skills, and to engage our graduates as proactive community participants.

From executives to homemakers to area newcomers, LE’s program is encouraged for anyone who wants to learn more about the unincorporated dynamics of the mountain community … how we are governed, how decisions are made and how to make a difference, have a voice and become involved.

Classes are held every two years beginning in odd numbered years. Class members have the opportunity to connect and develop new professional and community relationships, and unite together to create a class project that benefits the community. Past class projects can be found under the ‘LE Gives Back’ tab.
