DENVER – The Latino Leadership Institute (LLI) is a Colorado group whose purpose is to elevate Latino leaders across the state, and among the honorees this year was none other than Denver7 anchor Anne Trujillo.

On Thursday, the LLI announced the recipients of the 2023 Latino Leadership and Legacy Awards. Among them:

  • Cultivando, a Colorado nonprofit which champions environmental justice for Colorado families. The nonprofit was awarded the Innovation Award.
  • Marisol Villagomez, the director of multicultural marketing for the Denver Broncos. She was awarded the Heritage Award.
  • Tony Salazar, the vice president for outreach and engagement at the University of Colorado, was awarded the Influence Award.

But the Legacy Award went to someone who we all know pretty well.
See Anne’s reaction in the video below.
