Coors Chair

The Holland H. Coors Chair in Education Technology was established by gifts to ARDI from the Coors Foundation and other organizations and individuals to honor Ambassador Holly Coors for her unwavering and selfless commitment to her country and the improvement of life quality for all.

Ambassador Coor’s services to the USAFA were many and exemplary, including serving on the Board of Visitors to the Air Force Academy. She was also a founding board member of ARDI.

Ambassador Coors gave her efforts to the boards of the Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society. One of her many accomplishments included founding the Women of our Hemisphere Achieving Together, and serving as president  of the WHAT to assist women from Central America and the Dominican Republic.

Holland Coors also served in senior positions for many other institutions and organizations, and President Ronald Reagan appointed her as the goodwill ambassador for the Western Hemisphere.
