Marcy and Bruce Benson were named the 2020 Citizens of the West by the National Western Stock Show (NWSS).

This annual award “recognizes those who embody the spirit and determination of Western pioneers and perpetuate the West’s agriculture heritage and ideals,” according to the NWSS.

The award will be presented at a dinner on Jan. 13, 2020 during the stock show.

According to the NWSS announcement of this year’s award, the Bensons are respected leaders in the business, education, civic, political and philanthropic communities, and chaired the University of Colorado’s $1.5 billion Creating Futures fundraising campaign, which exceeded its goal in donations raised to support scholarships, academic research projects and capital improvements across Colorado University’s campuses.
