He is there for you. He is at your event. He’s listening to your issues and he really takes it to heart.”Other awards to be presented include ‘Family Owned Business of the Year’ to Kurt, Bryon and Marty Smith of Edwards Furniture; ‘Technology Business of the Year’ to Chris Ball of Cache Telecom Voice and Data; ‘Exporter of the Year’ to Tom Carlin of Inovar; ‘Small Business Champion of the Year’ to Cindy Roberts of the Cache Business Resource Center; ‘USU Community Advocate of the Year’ to Patty Halaufia of the USU Alumni Office; and, a ‘Special Recognition’ to Tom Jensen for his work on “Envision Cache Valley.”USU President Stan Albrecht will be the keynote speaker.
