Mother of three honored as Asset Champion
Helping parents raise healthy, happy, responsible children turned out to be a calling for Kerry Stutzman, who was honored as an Asset Champion by the Community Asset Project on Sept. 6.
“Kerry has become an Asset Champion through her work in the community as a parent coach, public speaker, family therapist, certified Love & Logic facilitator, and most importantly, the mother of three wonderful sons,” said Steve Cohen, a member of the Community Asset Project Board.  “Kerry was finding her way after divorce and attended one of the Cherry Creek School District’s “Building Assets/Building Strong Families and Communities” parenting classes. This was just the step she needed as she gained new skills and went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Social Work.”
Cohen presented the Asset Champion award to Stutzman at the September Parent Information Network (PIN) meeting, just before Stutzman’s presentation on “Loving your kids enough to let them make mistakes.”  Stutzman explained that children become prepared for the real world only when their parents allow them to make plenty of “affordable” mistakes, when the price tags for these mistakes is small.
The Community Asset Project is a partner of the Cherry Creek School District.  It positively impacts more than 50,000 students and their families through youth leadership training, Positive Behavior Supports, drug and alcohol abuse prevention, suicide prevention and other important programs.  For more information, visit
