Congratulations to Erin Yoshimura, the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival's Executive Director! She was named one of five Livingston Fellows for 2014 by the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation.
The prestigious Fellowship provides $25,000 for Erin to use toward personal development to increase her impact within CDBF and the broader Asian American Pacific Islander community. She was a CDBF volunteer from the first year, 2001, and was asked to take the Executive Director role in 2010.
Erin is the first person of Asian descent, out of 50 recipients, to receive this nonprofit executive fellowship from the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation. Previous Fellows have traveled nationally and internationally, attended elite academic programs, met with prominent leaders in their fields, and championed causes including homelessness, aging, mental health and the arts.
