" For me, from the age of nine, it was
an expectation that the children in the
family participate in community service, "
says Zink. " Our parents were big
on making sure projects got completed
but not doing the work for us. "
For Zink and Short, that meant cleaning
up the neighbor's yard or the local cemetery
and plugging into 4-H, where they
learned the importance of discipline
and teamwork.

W
ith their family's roots in Southwest Colorado dating
back to the early 20th
century, Karen Zink and Steve
Short are walking the walk of their ancestors. Their
parents, Merl and Marilyn Short, taught the sister
and brother the same values that their own parents and grandparents
had imparted to them: serving others is why we're here.
WE WERE THE FIGHTINGEST TWO
SIBLINGS YOU COULD IMAGINE
" We were the fightingest two siblings
you could imagine, " laughs Zink, who
is three years older than Short. " We'd
have these classic barnyard fights,
tearing each other's clothes, and
throwing manure at one another.
Now we are besties. I admire him to
the moon and back. "
Best known for his decades-long
stint as president, CEO, and popular
loan officer at First National Bank in
Durango, Short served as chairman of
FLC's Board of Trustees and has sat
on numerous boards in the region,
including the FLC Foundation. He
was awarded the Durango Chamber of
Commerce's prestigious Citizen of the
Year award in 2017 for his commitment
to the well-being of Durango's
economy, schools, and culture.
