2016 Heritage Awards
Utah Heritage Foundation will honor individuals and groups with Heritage Awards, and one individual with the Lucybeth Rampton Lifetime Achievement Award at a gala dinner on March 31, 2016, at Memorial House in Memory Grove Park.
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 Utah’s 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. Tonight I’m pleased to welcome Janet Warburton and Tony Rampton, the daughter and son of Lucybeth Rampton, and invite them to the podium to present the award.
This year that honor goes to a man who has impacted the built environment with both new construction and through historic preservation. That person is James W. (Jim) Christopher.
