Minnie Harding was a founding member of Friends in Council, one of the charter clubs of the Colorado Federation of Women’s Clubs (CFWC). As President of the CFWC from 1900-1902, she initiated a loan fund.  Harding and two other donors established the fund with $90 in 1902. The fund, which continues today, provides interest-free loans to assist Colorado women in obtaining a college education. It was Harding’s lifelong avocation. She managed the fund until her death in 1937, forming close bonds with many of the recipients.  After her death, the fund was named the Minnie L. Harding Educational Loan Fund.  By 1982, it was estimated that the loans totaled more than $1 million. By 1987, the fund had helped more than 1600 girls go to college. In 2016, six recipients were enrolled, and twenty-two women were repaying their debt to the fund.

In 1915 Emily Griffith appealed to the Denver School Board for permission to open a revolutionary school that would provide a free education to any adult who needed a second chance. September 9, 1916 was the opening day of the world’s first school geared to provide basic adult education and training in marketable skills. Griffith believed that everyone deserved an education regardless of age, race, gender or background. Griffith chose the name Opportunity School and hoped that 200 adults would enroll during that first semester. Instead, 2,389 signed up for classes. The school was later renamed the Emily Griffith Opportunity School, and Emily’s concept became world-renowned and much emulated. In June 2011, Emily Griffith Opportunity School officially changed its name to Emily Griffith Technical College. It is also affiliated with DPS as an alternative high school.

At age 14, Erinea Gallegos attended Loretto Academy for Girls in Pueblo until the devastating Pueblo Flood of 1921 closed the school. She graduated from Antonito High School with just eight classmates. She studied at Adams State College, Western State, and the University of Utah, and was one of Colorado’s first Hispanic women to go to college. With teaching degrees in hand, Gallegos became an elementary school teacher and later principal in Conejos, San Luis, and other nearby communities.

Gallegos’ legacy was her firm belief in the power of education, exemplified by her simple motto “The more you learn, the more you want to learn.” The family has honored this legacy through a scholarship fund at Adams State College named for Erinea and Maclovio Gallegos. Six of their children and all of their grandchildren graduated from college, many earning advanced degrees.
