Kathleen King Announces Her Retirement

By Kathleen King

A wise person said “The only thing constant is change,” and as I write this, Scholars Unlimited and I are preparing for the next changes:  After seven wonder-filled years at Scholars Unlimited, I am preparing for retirement.

For me, it’s one of those melancholy moments when you sit back and reflect on all that’s shaped your past and brought you to where you are now … and while I will miss the mission and work of Scholars Unlimited, I become excited as I begin to focus on where I’ll go next.

Our Board of Directors, under the leadership of Chair Lisa O’Connor and search committee chair Holly Bennett, has conducted a thoughtful, thorough and rigorous search to find the ideal person to become only the third President of Scholars Unlimited.

And I am excited to announce that we will be introducing our new organizational leader at our upcoming Breakfast of Scholars.  It’s one more compelling reason to be a part of what promises to be a very exciting event on June 22nd!

Our Board has found someone with a tremendous depth of knowledge and a passion for helping young children.  And I know that new leadership, new energy, and a fresh perspective will propel Scholars Unlimited to new heights.

I hope you’ll join us at the Breakfast and help us celebrate the beginning of another new chapter for an organization that we both care about deeply.

And I want you to know that It has been my privilege to serve with you and the entire Scholars Unlimited community these past seven years as we have partnered together to create brighter futures for at-promise young learners in Denver.

With gratitude,


Kathleen King, President
