About the Lisa Poff Bold and Brilliant Scholarship
The Lisa Poff Bold and Brilliant Scholarship was founded to support team member’s commitment to learning and exploring new challenges. The scholarship is named after Lisa Poff, who was an extraordinary person and team member, who exemplified all of Colony’s values, most notably her passion as a lifelong learner and her drive to explore new challenges.
Lisa brought out the best in each person who had the privilege of working with her by encouraging everyone to step outside their comfort zone and embrace their zone of genius. She did so in her own personable, thoughtful, and convincing manner. Lisa’s passion for learning and developing her team and other colleagues led to growth and achievement both for the company, and for the people who surrounded her. She was a coal advocate for many at Colony, and her support of them made them better professionals and better humans.
