It’s been a week and folks are still talking about the 2007 Legacy Awards Banquet hosted by Sutherland Institute. To the 250 elected officials and community leaders who attended, Sutherland expresses appreciation for taking part in this memorable evening.
Stan Rasmussen, public affairs manager for the Institute, said, “The event confirmed that great things and great changes are certainly achievable. The award recipients are truly inspiring.” Mr. Stan and Mrs. Mary Ellen Smoot received the Legacy Award for their lifetime of service in promoting faith, family, and freedom. The Charity Award was presented to Mr. Khosrow Semnani for his generosity in behalf of the Maliheh Free Clinic. Members of the Conservative Caucus were recognized with the Family Award for their work at the Utah Legislature in support of families.
This banquet is part of ongoing Sutherland efforts to recognize individuals who have taken private initiative in bettering Utah based on Sutherland’s governing principles: personal responsibility, family, religion, private property, free markets, charity, and limited government.
A write-up of the event, Smoots honored by Sutherland Institute, by the Davis County Clipper is available on Sutherland’s homepage under “Sutherland in the News.”
