If every citizen worked to be a guardian of freedom, we would be a nation of principled leaders, engaged communities, and effective government. Our 2017 Leader in Action Award goes to Helen Krieble, an extraordinary individual who is a tireless champion of building that kind of citizenship, one neighborhood at a time.

Helen is founder and president of The Vernon K. Krieble Foundation and serves on the Board of Directors for the Leadership Program of the Rockies. A true citizen activist, Helen created a unique program in America -The Lens of Liberty, designed to educate Americans on what it means to be a United States citizen.

In addition, Helen has spearheaded the “Unsung Hero Award”, an annual national recognition of everyday people who fight for freedom in their communities.

Our Leader in Action is also known as a highly sought-after speaker and noted leader in the national debate on immigration. As the author of “The Red Card Solution”, a private sector initiative to secure borders and address the illegal immigration stalemate, Helen is known for her creative and practical approach to issues that face our country.

Helen Krieble is a guiding beacon for The Leadership Program of the Rockies. We are proud to honor Helen as our 2017 Leader in Action.
Beginning in 2012, the Leader in Action Award is awarded annually to an alumnus of the Leadership Program of the Rockies who has displayed leadership, risk, courage, entrepreneurship, and success while promoting the timeless constitutional principles and impacting public policy.
