In 1964 scholar and diplomat Josef Korbel founded the school that would become the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies. Tonight, the School’s extended community gathered at the Sheraton Denver Downtown to celebrate the School’s golden anniversary and to honor three individuals who embody the School’s mission and vision.
A highpoint of the evening was the presentation of the annual Korbel Dinner awards to three individuals who have significantly impacted Colorado and the world.
Hill presented local philanthropists Anna and John J. Sie with the Josef Korbel Humanitarian Award for their generous philanthropic work. Hill explained, “Anna and John are truly pillars of the community. They have used their acumen and their passion in ways that have benefited many people and organizations here in Colorado and around the globe.”
