2020 Chair’s Initiative Award: Success in Education
The Success in Education Foundation is a public charity created to promote excellence in education, increase literacy, and help Utah students prepare for post-secondary education. They are driven by a commitment to excellence in education and a desire to contribute in a meaningful way to every student’s educational experience. They seek to motivate students to improve academically by working with schools to reward educational accomplishments.
The Success in Education Foundation was created by the Robert H. and Katharine B. Garff family as they wanted to leave a legacy of lifelong learning. They believe in the transformative power of engaging education, and enhancing and enriching scholastic experiences by creating, enabling, and integrating programs that change the world. The Foundation has been changing lives through the Road to Success, Keys to Success, and Code to Success programs. These efforts are in line with the Chamber’s Board Chair’s initiative to raise awareness on gender-related issues in opportunity and the Chamber looks forward to continuing to work together as it relates to our future workforce.
