CMC Aspen gives accolades to business instructor
Midvalley resident Bennett Bramson has been selected as the adjunct Faculty of the Year at Colorado Mountain College Aspen.
Bramson is the teacher of a popular, interactive business course. His forte is getting students out into the community to learn firsthand about the economy. Bramson also happens to be a magician, and he incorporates his skills in the classroom.
“Bennett uses his magic to draw students into deeper topics, using magic as a metaphor and a teaching tool,” said Rick Johnson, assistant dean of instruction at Colorado Mountain College’s Aspen campus.
Each year, students, staff and faculty of Colorado Mountain College nominate outstanding faculty members from each of the college’s seven campuses and the online learning department. Fulan Li was one of the students who nominated Bramson for the award.
“He is responsible, creative, and he cares about students,” Li said. “He has inspired me to have a greater sense of community service.”
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Bramson, who has lived in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2002, is a well-known super volunteer. He donates his time to countless civic causes in Basalt and Aspen. Pitkin County gave him the Greg Mace Award for Volunteer of the Year in 2013 — the same year that Basalt recognized him as Citizen of the Year.

Somewhat vanilla on the outside, relying on a heavy dose of the power run, the Basalt High School football team’s offense has always had its share of wrinkles under coach Carl Frerichs. The latest involves the twitchy arm of junior Kade Schneider, who is in his first season as the Longhorns’ QB1.
