Best of State 2015
The Utah best of State Award Gala was May 9, 2015 at the Salt Palace Convention Center. As in the past years I have attended, the event was overboard with great entertainment and food. Shauna Lake and Mark Koelbel were co-Masters of Ceremony. Savannah Lancaster, Miss Utah Teen USA 2104 and Nicol Elizabeth Powell, Miss Utah USA 2015 served beautifully as Award Attendants. Some outstanding performances were offered by the likes of Caleb Chapman’s Little Big Band, The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic, The Strike, Walt Gregory, Theron Milo and many more.
This, my seventh consecutive year attending as an award winner was a hallmark year. I am honored to have been chosen as a triple winner!! In the Arts and Entertainment Division I was given the nod for Carving and Handicrafts. Branching into a new world, the Merchandising and Consumer Services Division saw Jewelry category go to my efforts.
All in all, a night of grand blessings with good friends and family. Congratulations to each and every winner and my countless gratitude to the many people who made this night possible. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
