The Community Foundation of Utah has recognized 50 individuals who it says are making a measurable — but often unsung — difference in the state.
Members of the community nominate members of the "Enlightened 50," a news release said.
To qualify for nomination, an individual must be an innovator pioneering original and sustainable approaches to the critical issues facing our state and its people, a builder committed to community engagement and the common good, or a visionary most likely to make a profound mark on Utah’s quality of life, according to the release.
The program is in its fifth year, the foundation said. It will induct this year’s Enlightened 50 members on June 18.
