Sorenson Legacy Awards

The Sorenson Legacy Foundation was created to improve the lives of others and the world in which we live. Founded by the late biotechnology pioneer and entrepreneur, James LeVoy Sorenson and his wife, education philanthropist Beverley Taylor Sorenson, the foundation provides support for a wide range of endeavors, from community development and education to health care, scientific and artistic pursuits.

Earlier this month, the Sorenson Legacy Awards for Excellence in Arts Education were presented during an awards dinner held at the Salt Lake Marriott City Center. The fused-glass awards were designed by Carrie Trenholm, a Sorenson Legacy Awards for Excellence in Arts Education 2015 Lifetime Achievement in Arts Education award winner
