Anna Stout - 2018 YPN of the Year

Executive Director/Roice-Hurst Humane Society

With big dreams and incredible motivation, Anna served our community as a young entrepreneur, founding an organization – at age 19 – called the Foundation for Cultural Exchange. This local nonprofit promotes meaningful partnerships with the people of El Espino, El Salvador, working toward lasting economic and social development. She also wrote a book about her experiences and lessons-learned called, “El Salvador: Lessons on Love and Resilience”.

After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Mesa State College in 2009 and receiving her Master’s in Global Affairs from the University of Denver, Anna was named the Executive Director of Roice-Hurst Humane Society in 2015. Since then, she has grown that organization’s endowment from 50,000 to almost 800,000 in less than two-years while creating a culture that focuses on empowering animal-owners.

Anna has served on several boards including the Latino Chamber of Commerce, KAFM Community Radio Advisory Board, The World Affairs Council, CASA of Mesa County, GJ Rockies host families, Riverside Education Center, and many others. And now, Anna continues her mission in serving our community by announcing her candidacy for the Grand Junction City Council.


Congratulations to our 2018 Young Professional of the Year – Anna Stout!
