Miffie (Miriam) Blozvich

Miffie has been a resident of the Grand Valley since 1967.  During that time, she attended junior high, high school and Mesa Junior College (now Colorado Mesa University). While raising her children, Miffie launched a twenty-five year involvement in fundraising, serving as Parent Teacher League president for Holy Family School – focusing on the annual luncheon/fashion show which she helped build into one of the school’s biggest fundraising events.  Over the course of that time, she has worked as Director of Fundraising for United Way of Mesa County, Community Relations Manager for Mesa County Libraries, and Development Director for the Museum of Western Colorado.

Her interest in supporting environmental issues was sparked in 1979 by Project Lighthawk.  Her involvement on the boards of Mesa Land Trust and the Colorado National Monument Association served as a foundation for education on the need for conservation of our unprotected lands.

She currently serves on the board for the Wayne Aspinall Foundation and is Co-Chair for The Legends of History Sculpture Project (for Art on the Corner). Her fundraising involvements have included: Mesa County Historical Society, The American Cancer Society, Marillac Clinic, The Women’s Foundation of Colorado, St. Mary’s Hospital, KPRN Public Radio, and KAFM Community Radio.

As Director of Marketing and Development for Gateway Canyons Air Tours (her first job outside of fundraising in over 25 years) she had the opportunity to fly at low levels over the vast landscapes of western Colorado and eastern Utah for over two years.

She continues her involvement in the community through her efforts in land conservation, historic preservation and scholarships for Colorado Mesa University students.
