Chamber statement on passing of former ATHENA Leadership Award recipient, June Morris

“We were saddened to learn of the passing of June Morris last week. She was an entrepreneur, champion and trailblazer for women in business. In 1993, June received the Salt Lake Chamber’s ATHENA Leadership Award for her remarkable work in founding Morris Travel and Morris Air, which sold to Southwest, where she was the only female leading a major airline. 

“June will be remembered for the lives she touched, jobs and adventures she created, and her pioneer spirit in the business world. Her legacy will continue to inspire entrepreneurs and business leaders everywhere, as well as all of those who will change the world as they experience more of it. Our condolences to the entire family but our deepest gratitude for the life she lived.”
