The Community Foundation of Utah has, for the sixth year, recognized fifty individuals who are making a measurable – but often unsung – difference in the lives of Utahns.
Called the ‘Enlightened 50’, or E-50, members were nominated by members of the community. Each of the nominees then selected five fellow nominees, and the top fifty were inducted into this expanding network at a reception held in their honor at Church and State on July 15th. The 2015 ‘E-50’ includes individuals from all parts of Utah (from Logan to Moab) and all walks of life, who share one thing: a commitment to the common good.
“We are delighted to bring together these extraordinary people who, each in their own way, are committed to the future of our state and its residents,” said Alex Eaton, the Executive Director for the Community Foundation of Utah.
This year’s winners from across Utah include public servants and elected officials, nonprofit and business leaders, scientists and artists, educators and entrepreneurs. The criteria for this recognition are:
– An innovator – pioneering original and sustainable approaches to the critical issues facing our state and its people
– A builder – committed to community engagement and the common good
– A visionary – most likely to make a profound mark on Utah’s quality of life
