The life experiences of individuals whose unyielding commitment, focus, and determination have resulted in achievements beyond expectation inspire us and often provide us hope as we go through challenges of our own. The selection of the 2013 Freedom Award recipients has been focused on individuals who have exhibited absolute resolve in the support of the traditional American values of family, freedom, God, and country. They join an impressive list of previous recipients who have each demonstrated a unique contribution to the cause of the freedoms guaranteed in the US Constitution and these cherished American values.
This year’s Gala will be held at one of downtown Provo’s newest landmarks—the Utah Valley Convention Center. Get a first-hand look at this beautiful new facility and join us for a formal evening of fine dining and entertainment. The highlight of the event will be the honoring of four individuals who have each, in their own way, shown the importance of commitment—to a spouse, to duty, to a sure knowledge of God, and to their fellowman.
