Logan attorney and state senator Lyle Hillyard to be recognized as Outstanding Citizen of the Year

Once again the Cache Chamber of Commerce is presenting special awards to individuals or businesses deserving of the honors for 2014. Chamber President and CEO Sandy Emile invites everyone to attend the annual awards banquet on Thursday, January 23 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Riverwoods Conference Center.

Awards this year will be presented in several different categories but, as usual, the most important is the Outstanding Citizen of the Year award. Emile says that honor will go to Logan attorney and Utah State Senator Lyle Hillyard. In her words, no one should be surprised.

“Lyle does so much more than the wonderful political representation that he offers our valley,” Emile explains. “He and his family are give-back people. They support the arts, they support health care.

“Anything of any value in this community Lyle is either in it, he’s aware of it, (or) he’s supporting it. His family attends all sorts of functions in this valley. I seriously don’t know how the man goes.”

She says Hillyard seems to be able to get 26 hours out of a 24 hour day. Other award categories are Economic Impact, Technology Business of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Best Small Business, Best Large Business, and Best Volunteers of the Year.

New Utah Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox will be the keynote speaker.
