Colorado: Kourlises named 2010 Citizens of West
CRAIG, Colorado – The National Western Stock Show will honor a husband and wife as the 2010 Citizens of the West.
Tom Kourlis, a former Colorado agriculture commissioner, and Rebecca Love Kourlis, a former Colorado Supreme Court justice, are the newest honorees.
The Denver-based stock show gives the award each year to a person seen as embodying the Western spirit and ethics.
The Kourlises are the third couple to win the award in its 40-plus history. Mary McMorris of the National Western says Rebecca Kourlis’ parents, former Gov. John Love and his wife, Ann Love, received the award in 1989.
The Kourlises will be honored at a dinner Jan. 13 in Denver.
