Davis Technical College Foundation Honors Community Partners

Kaysville – The Davis Technical College Foundation honored organizations and outstanding individuals for their commitment to changing students’ lives at its annual Life-Changer Luncheon on Thursday, October 20 on Davis Technical College’s campus.

This year, the five honorees are as follows:

  • Alan & Jeanne Hall, Haven J. Barlow Legacy Award
  • Young Automotive Group, Industry Partner Award
  • Bountiful Food Pantry, Lorna Koci & Cathy Turnbow, Community Advocates Award
  • Barbara Smith, Presidents Award
  • Utah State University, Education Partner Award

“Donations to the Davis Technical College Foundation help to create life-changing opportunities for students. We have so many wonderful people in our community who are true life-changers at Davis Tech,” said Davis Technical College Foundation Director Marcie Valdez. “In addition to thanking many of our incredible donors and partners, this year's provided the opportunity to honor and recognize individuals who have dedicated their lives to education, a local nonprofit organization, and an industry partner for their significant contributions to Davis Technical College and education in Utah.”

This year's celebration is particularly poignant, as it is the first time holding this event after the passing of Haven J. Barlow, one of our greatest benefactors and the "godfather" of technical education in Utah.


“It's fitting that this year's Haven J. Barlow Legacy award is presented to Alan and Jeanne Hall, who, like Haven Barlow, are true champions for education. Their love of learning and devotion to educating the next generation has changed the lives of thousands of people across the state,” said Valdez.


Each donation makes a difference in the community through the support of technical education, and Davis Tech thanks each of our generous donors.
