Beverley Taylor Sorenson, a shining example of philanthropy, passed away on May 27 at the age of 89. Her legacy of compassion and love for the arts and education will continue to live on through her family and the untold number of students she touched. Mrs. Sorenson was presented with the Universityâ€™s first Presidential Medallion of Service during the March 2013 Founders Day Celebration, but that is not the end.
Her life will continue to be honored with the groundbreaking of
the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Center for the Arts in March, 2014. We are forever grateful to Mrs. Sorenson and the crucial aid she gave to not only SUU but also, the entire state of Utah in support of arts education.
