Holly Harsh

Sustainer Rep


Holly was raised in Pueblo, Colorado and a graduate of Pueblo Central High School. She is a proud first generation American citizen; her mother was born in Germany but was brought over by an Nebraskan church from a deportation camp as a young girl.  Holly is a mother of two daughters. Zoe and Mara both attend CU Boulder. She attended CSU-Ft.Collins and received her bachelor’s degree in Social Science Education. She holds a Master’s degree in Special Education and an endorsement in Career and Tech Education.  Holly has taught in District 60 for over 20 years and currently is working at Central High School.

As a young teacher, newly returning from Atlanta, Georgia, joining the Junior League of Pueblo in 1997 provided her with an instant circle of friends in her old hometown, and the League offered her a wonderful support system in her first years as a new professional and later as a new mother.  Holly was introduced to Junior League by founding member Sandy Stein and former neighbor as a child.  During her years in the League, Holly started the Book Swap, Chaired Funds Development and Community Impact and as a sustainer of many years, she is proud to host and support the League today.  Holly’s closest friends were all developed through my work in Junior League.  Because of this connection, I know we share the same values, beliefs, and hope for the future of Pueblo.  Together, we all make a positive impact on Pueblo. 

The JLP really gave me the skills and leadership experience I needed in all aspects of my professional career as well as other community service organizations.  

I hope to continue to give and transfer what I have learned and gained from the Junior League of Pueblo into all organizations and community experiences I am privileged to be a part of.
