The Board of Directors and staff of the Challenger Learning Center of Colorado is saddened by the passing of the Honorable Peter B. Teets, whose 37-year career in the aerospace industry is legendary and filled with more national and international accolades than we have room to document.
We cherished every minute his great wisdom and commitment to STEM education was brought to bear, as he served on our Board of Directors. He was a man of great wisdom and compassion and when he was referred to as “The Honorable” Peter Teets, “The Honorable” was not just a gratuitous or polite title. Peter Teets earned the title “Honorable” in everything he said and did, in his personal as well as his public life. When he “retired” from our Board he gave us a great gift. His wife, Vivian assumed his Board position and she picked up where Peter left off. It goes without saying that much of our success is directly attributable to the Teets family. Vivian retired from our Board on January 1, 2020 and we extend to her our most sincere condolences on Peter’s passing.
We will all miss him terribly.
Your gifts, both large and small, will help us to achieve our mission of providing exciting and engaging programs for teachers to use as inspiration for their students and the STEM fields.
