Greg Stevinson to be inducted to the Jeffco Hall of Fame

It is my pleasure to announce that the Jefferson County Historical Commission has accepted the nomination of Greg Stevinson to be included as their 2013 Hall of Fame living honoree.

Hall of Fame

Each year since 1979 two individuals significant in county history or in the preservation of county history, one living and one deceased, have been named to the Hall of Fame. Their portraits are on display in the County Administration Building. See the full list: Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame Ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, October 17, 2013 at Mount Vernon Country Club.

The annual Hall of Fame Ceremony is a public event at which two new designees to the Jefferson County Hall of Fame are announced, and historic sites placed on the National Register of Historic Places and the State Register of Historic Sites are recognized. Finally, historic properties designated through the County Historic Landmark Program are recognized with a Certificate of Designation.

The hall of Fame nominees should be people who have molded and shaped the history of Jefferson County in one or more of the following ways:

THE WRITTEN WORD - The nominee has written articles, stories or books on Jefferson County.

RESEARCH - The nominee has done extensive research on geology, archeology, or history of Jefferson County.

PHOTOGRAPHY - The nominee has been active in photographing or mapping Jefferson County.

POLITICAL - The nominee has contributed to or changed the course of events in Jefferson County.

INDUSTRY - The nominee has been prominent in industrial or agricultural development in Jefferson County.

PUBLIC SERVICE - The nominee has been involved in founding or promoting a charitable or public service organization.

EDUCATION - The nominee has been involved with educational progress in Jefferson County.

CULTURAL - The nominee has made artistic and/or cultural contributions specific to Jefferson County.

Greg’s contributions to Jefferson County have been numerous and quietly conveyed. From his role as chairman of the Jefferson County Open Space Advisory Committee to his personal interest in capturing local natural assets through art placed in public spaces, this honor is truly deserved.
