She founded the CU Alumni choir in 1988 giving alumni from all CU campuses the opportunity to enjoy singing in an amateur choir. Upon her retirement in 2000, Dr. Bogard and her husband Charles established the Donna Bogard Scholarship in Voice for students enrolled in the College of Arts and Media at the University of Colorado Denver. Dr. Bogard was passionate about teaching and positively influenced the lives of thousands of students throughout her long career.
“Donna is so fondly remembered by her students and peers " says Dean of College of Arts & Media, Laurence Kaptain."Her joy for teaching and dedication to students serves as the foundation for the college as it is today."
The College of Arts & Media is honored and deeply moved that Dr. Bogard's family members are requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the scholarship fund that bears her name.Thank you, Dr. Bogard, for your years of dedicated service.
