In 1995, Gardner Lynch Gordon Carney died in a kayaking accident in his senior year at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His family, Jim, Laurie and Winston Carney, established a restricted endowment at the Fountain Valley School in Colorado, in his memory.
Dawn Baldwin is Fountain Valley School of Colorado's administrative assistant in the Deans’ Office. She works with the dean of students, assistant dean of students and director of studies, along with students and faculty. She is responsible for administration support of student programs, and student and faculty database management. There is a lot to the job that she continues to learn day in and day out; with patience, determination and a welcoming smile.
Before joining FVS, Dawn worked at Fort Carson Army Post in Colorado Springs assisting soldiers who are transitioning from military to civilian life. She also worked on redeployments, welcoming home soldiers from their tour of duty. Prior to that, she worked in Tampa, Fla., at MacDill Air Force Base. She has over 10 years experience managing the office administration process, including nine years of direct procurement in support of base operations. She has experience working with diverse ethnic and cultural populations in both the private sector and military settings.
She lives in Colorado Springs with her husband, Christopher. Chris is a Colorado Native. Together, they love to travel and love sports, hiking, swimming, biking (road and mountain). As a matter of fact; while Chris completes the Mountain Top Bike Ride and the Triple Bypass Bike Ride, Dawn enjoys being his number 1 fan (SAG and Photographer). They hope to welcome a child into this world one day, but until then...they will enjoy the splendors of life together and embrace every moment they have together.
