When Dr. Kent Hutcheson founded Colorado UpLift in 1982 as a summer jobs program for urban and underserved youth, he had no idea what kind of impact he’d have, not only in the Denver area, but around the country. In this special episode, we talk with Dr. Hutcheson’s son about the life of his father, the impact he saw, and how to pass on a legacy that lasts for generations, all while sharing many stories along the way.
