Government, religious, and civic leaders will gather for the Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast with the purpose of praying for America’s leaders. This year's key note speaker is UVU President, Astrid S. Tuminez! Utah County mayors have chaired this event to encourage the community to gather and reaffirm spiritual values upon which this nation was founded. The Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast was designed after the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, first held by President Eisenhower in 1953. The event originated as a time of personal reflection and re-dedication to God, as well as an opportunity to restore and reaffirm the spiritual heritage of America. The Mayor’s Day Breakfast echoes these objectives through prayer, word and song. Invitation required. Public invitations available upon request. Please contact (801) 818-1776 or email contact@freedomfestival.org.

Astrid S. Tuminez

Dr. Astrid S. Tuminez was appointed the seventh president of Utah Valley University in 2018, and is the institution’s first female president. Tuminez brings to UVU a broad and rich experience in academia, philanthropy, technology, and business. Born in a farming village in the Philippine province of Iloilo, Tuminez moved with her parents and six siblings to the slums of Iloilo City when she was two years old, her parents seeking better educational opportunities for their children.

Her pursuit of education eventually took her to the United States, to Brigham Young University where she graduated summa cum laude in 1986 with a bachelor’s degree in international relations and Russian literature. She earned a master’s degree from Harvard University in Soviet Studies (1988) and a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in political science (1996).

Before assuming her current position, President Tuminez was a world leader in the fields of technology and political science, most recently serving as an executive at Microsoft, where she led corporate, external and legal affairs in Southeast Asia. Tuminez is also the former vice dean of Research and assistant dean of Executive Education at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore, the premier school of public policy in Asia. She and her husband, Jeffrey S. Tolk, have three children. In her spare time, she enjoys running, dancing, and martial arts.
