In the fall of 2014, the CMC Foundation invited supporters of Colorado Mountain College’s Isaacson School for New Media to a special event at the Aspen Institute. Walter Isaacson moderated a panel discussion about the Isaacson School and announced a $1 million gift made by John and Jessica Fullerton in support of the school. The event also included an unveiling of the Isaacson School’s newly designed website, which creates a global presence for the school.

“Jessica and I are pleased to make this leadership gift to the Isaacson School,” said John Fullerton. “This program is assisting local students to enter this exciting new career field, and we believe it will also attract students from across the county to our region and will help increase the profile of new media in the Roaring Fork Valley.”
