“Now going into its 75th year, the Utah Foundation has never been more relevant and needed in fulfilling its mission of encouraging informed public policy,” Dr. Hitch said. It has been an honor and a privilege to serve on the Utah Foundation Board with the enthusiastic and informed representatives of the member organizations.”

Mr. Westover thanked Dr. Hitch for her dedicated service to Utah Foundation’s board. “Liz leaves Utah Foundation a stronger and better organization,” he said. “We will miss her energy, passion and insights – and we wish her the very best in her future adventures.”
