THE LASTING LEGACY – Homer & Diane Blackwell

Homer L. Blackwell

5/18/1945 – 1/30/2014

My dad started Blackwell Bail Bonds in Pueblo, Colorado in 1998. He built the largest bond agency in Southern Colorado bar none. Dad did life his way and his legacy continues. Dad you are my role model and my hero.

My mom was the heart of Dennis Blackwell Bail Bonds since its inception in September of 1992. She made relationships with clients that still exist. Twelve years after mom passed we still receive calls asking to speak her. Mom you are the heart and soul of our business in Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

In 2010 Colorado State University-Pueblo Announced Blackwell Presidents Leadership Award

PUEBLO – Student leaders at Colorado State University-Pueblo will receive additional recognition and a cash award thanks to the generosity of the Blackwell and Titus families.

Homer Blackwell, Dennis Blackwell, and Janice Titus have established an endowed award, the Diane Blackwell Presidents Leadership Award, to be presented annually to a student leader who “displays exceptional leadership skills, is very involved with the campus community, and contributes to make CSU-Pueblo a better place.” The award honors the memory of Diane Karen Blackwell, who passed away in May of this year.

“My mom was an inspiration, my best friend,” said Janice Titus. “She not only inspired me, but almost each and every person she came into contact with. I would like her memory and legacy to continue to inspire our future leaders of America.”

The Diane Blackwell President’s Leadership Award will be presented to a student at the annual student leadership recognition ceremony in April/May. The award will be given to an outstanding student leader from a pool of nominations. Candidates for the award will have excelled as student leaders with a distinguished record of extraordinary service, spirit, advocacy, and involvement within the University community. Recipients will have a history of positive and significant accomplishments resulting in major contributions that enhance the quality of life at the University. Other criteria for the award include being a current CSU-Pueblo student enrolled in six or more credit hours, junior class rank or higher, and having a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 or above.
