Visionary Denver businessman, Charles W. Lerch, started Denver Teachers Awards’ in 1957.  He was dedicated to strengthening our foundation of freedom and believed that the most efficient way to do this was by encouraging quality education in the Denver Public Schools.  The tradition has been continued by DTA board members who raise funds each year to support the organization and its work.   See “What You Can Do” to assist with this effort.
