We'd like to extend a big thanks to everyone who made this year's Common Good Awards such a record-breaking success! We heard Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez, UVU President, share her story on how the power of a vision for the future took her from extreme poverty to international leadership in the tech industry. Using Singapore as an example, Dr. Tuminez also explained Utah's unique potential to plan for the future and harness rapid growth. In addition, we were pleased to honor this year's Common Good Awardees, Kids On The Move, Cowboy Partners, and Gail Miller. Congratulations! In the words of Dr. Tuminez, "You make Utah a better place to achieve so many dreams."

Born into extreme poverty in the Philippines, Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez relied on education to rise and become an international leader in the tech industry. She’ll share her story and her thoughts on Utah’s position in the global market – and what that means for the fastest growing county and university in the state. Click here to watch Dr. Tuminez share a little of her story. Dr. Tuminez became the seventh president of Utah Valley University in 2018. She is the first woman to serve full-time as UVU president.

Governor Gary Herbert presented the awards and spoke about Utah County and the explosive growth headed its way. He shared what we need to do to ensure the area remains a great place to live – including his vision for Utah County (and the rest of the state) as an example of quality growth, nationally and internationally. Click here for the PDF invitation.
