“Anything I may have accomplished during my lifetime, I owe to the blessing of being able to surround myself with so many close friends, fellow employees and advisors. I humbly owe any success to them, any of my failures are mine alone.”
Anyone who knows Hank Bosco has heard this at least once. A great belief from an incredible man worthy of a day of celebration.
Hank is best known for his long tenure at the helm of Glenwood Hot Springs. A key member of the original ownership group in 1956, Hank served as General Manager for many years, as the President for over 30 years, and continued to be actively involved as Chairman of the Board until this year.
Always civic-minded, Hank served as a Glenwood Springs City Councilman for eight years and sat on the City Planning and Zoning Commission. He was a founding member of the Valley View Hospital Association, which today employs hundreds of people. He is a 60-plus year member of the local Kiwanis Club and a 50-plus year member of the Elks Lodge. Hank also helped establish YouthZone, an organization that provides support and counseling for at-risk teens and their families.
Known throughout the state, Hank is often recognized for his longstanding legacy of leadership and servce as highlighted in this letter from Senator Bennet.
