Kevin Kaufman and Wendy Kale Scholarship
“Wendy Kale was a long-time music writer/critic for the Colorado Daily and through the decades Wendy’s work was pivotal in attracting local and nationally recognized speakers and musical acts and furthering the cultural diversity of extracurricular programming at the University of Colorado Boulder, as well as helping firmly establish Boulder as a music destination for not only artists—established and up-and-coming—but also fans. Wendy passed away on August 2, 2011. Kevin Kaufman worked in journalism for 35 years. He joined the Boulder Daily Camera in 1994, was named managing editor in 2005, and was appointed as the newspaper’s executive editor in 2006. Kevin made an immeasurable impact on journalism and trained a generation of journalists. He was a fierce advocate for the public’s right to know, holding public servants accountable and, above all, doing the invaluable job of local journalism. He passed away on Feb. 10, 2019. This scholarship was created by friends and family of Wendy and Kevin to recognize their contributions to journalism.
