2015 Heritage Awards
Utah Heritage Foundation honored thirteen individuals and groups with Heritage Awards, and one individual with the Lucybeth Rampton Lifetime Achievement Award at a gala dinner on March 12, 2015, at the Leonardo.
Each award recipient represents a model that others can look to for meeting the challenges of preservation. As a group, the recipients represent the many and varied ways preservation is accomplished in our communities. They include: exciting adaptive use projects, the tireless efforts of dedicated homeowners, threatened buildings that have been saved from destruction, and the lifetime efforts of a committed preservationist. Through this awards program, Utah Heritage Foundation congratulates our award recipients and thanks them for their contribution to preserving Utah's architectural heritage.
The Lucybeth Rampton Lifetime Achievement Award was established in honor of former First Lady Lucybeth Rampton, a founding member of Utah Heritage Foundation. The Lucybeth Rampton Award is presented to individuals who have demonstrated a lifetime commitment to historic preservation and whose vision and activities have significantly impacted the preservation movement in Utah. And this year that honor goes to a group of people who have supported preservation for decades – The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation.
Many communities across the state are in a better place because of our 2015 Lucybeth Rampton Lifetime Achievement Award winner.
