On Saturday, May 19, 2007, the Sutherland Institute was honored as Utah’s top Education/Advocacy organization at the Best of State Awards Gala. This is the second year in a row that Sutherland has received the award for its innovative program, the Transcend Series.
Sutherland created the Transcend Series after the Institute identified the need for a way civic leaders could become better informed, equipped and skilled to serve in their respective roles. More than 300 public officials and citizens across the social-political spectrum have benefited from their participation in this ground-breaking program, now in its fourth year. The experience enables participants to transcend politics as usual in the service of their communities and colleagues.
