Written by: developer

On April 24, Space Foundation team members watched as their Chairman Emeritus William B. Tutt was inducted into the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Hall of Fame. Award-winning singer R.W. Hampton hosted the 75th Anniversary event, held at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. The Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo has been a Colorado Springs tradition since 1937.

Tutt served on the Space Foundation Board of Directors from 1984-2004, and was its Chairman from 2002-2004 before being named Chairman Emeritus.

In addition to his long-time support of the Space Foundation, Tutt made significant impact on the Colorado Springs region through his many charitable contributions. He was trained in hotel management and left his mark on The Broadmoor, The Colorado Thirty Group and the United States Olympic Committee.
