·       Brian Allen – Colorado Alpine College alumnus (1969)

·       Yesenia Arreola – Spring Valley alumna (2007)

·       George Bagwell – retired faculty, honorary member

·       David Delaplane – Colorado Mountain College co-founder, honorary member

·       Amy Jackson – Breckenridge alumna (1999)

·       George Jardine – Spring Valley alumnus (1974)

·       Janice Kauvar – Spring Valley alumna (1976) – posthumously.
The first Colorado Mountain College Alumni Hall of Fame class was honored in 2013, and inductees were drawn from alumni who had attended the college at any time since the 1960s. Also inducted that year were all the members of the college’s first class of bachelor’s degree graduates.

The college’s alumni board selects alumni for the honor based on noteworthy accomplishments and contributions to their communities. Besides alumni, this year’s class includes two honorary members: Colorado Mountain College co-founder David Delaplane and retired professor George Bagwell.
