Who is Milton E. Proby?

Real Estate Agent with Wagner iTeam - Re/Max Real Estate Group

If you have ever driven down South Powers Blvd, you have seen the street that leads to the Colorado Springs airport: Milton E. Proby Parkway.

I drive down this stretch of road all the time, and finally my curiosity got the best of me …

Who IS Milton E. Proby?

Well, I did some research and was delighted to learn who this gentleman was.

Per the El Pomar website:

“During his 47 years in Colorado Springs, Rev. Milton E. Proby actively championed the cause of all people facing issues of inequality and injustice in southern Colorado.”  Read the Full Article Here

Because of his great efforts, here in Colorado Springs, “In January 2006, Colorado Springs City Council voted unanimously to honor Reverend Proby by naming the gateway to the Colorado Springs Airport after him.[source]

What a great memorial to a great man from Colorado Springs’ history!

I see streets named after folks all the time, thanks for the inspiration to research them in the future and give them the time and credit where it must be due.  Never would have thought to do that if it weren't for you @mizzle.  :-))  Miss you guys, hope all is well. :-)
