LYMAN — Several Bridger Valley residents and three entities were named as leaders for the Valley April 13, at the annual Bridger Valley Chamber of Commerce awards luncheon.
The 21st annual luncheon was held at the Heritage Barn in Lyman and played to a host of Valley residents. The theme for this year’s event was “Spring into Action.” Awards were presented by entities to employees recognized for their willingness to go above-and-beyond the call of duty.
In keeping with the theme, chamber president Cindy Haggit spoke about spring bringing new life and the people who have the ability to dream and then take action on their dreams are the ones who make their dreams happen.
“They say anything is possible,” Haggit said, “You need to dream as if you’ve never seen obstacles.”
This year three organizations were recognized as top groups in the Valley. The Uinta County Senior Citizens was recognized as the Business of the Year. According to Haggit, the Uinta County Senior Citizens had risen above the challenges it had faced during the past year by reorganizing management, holding fundraisers, offering breakfast the first Saturday of the month and more.
A second entity recognized for the group’s accomplishments was Uinta County School District #4. District #4 was recognized by the Town of Mountain View as Mountain View’s Citizens of the Year. This was in response to the district obtaining the highest graduation rate of all school districts in the state.
The Citizens of the Year award for the Town of Lyman, presented by councilman Shane Hooten, was presented to members of the Bridger Valley Ambulance crew who have served 15 years or more.
