Carmen Rose Hepworth Award

Carmen Rose Hepworth (’53, elementary education) dedicated her life to public education, civic engagement and Southern Utah University. She and her husband Mel ('50, elementary education) never had children of their own, but they influenced the lives of hundreds of students by serving as strong role models and loving mentors.
