In the year 2010, Cheryl Lant, former Primary general president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, founded the Influential Women in Scouting event in the Utah National Parks Council. This award pays tribute to women whose lives have influenced youth and communities throughout Utah. It is an award for noteworthy service as exemplified in the lives of these great women as they serve in their respective communities. These women have exceptional character that promotes the values and ideals of Scouting. They have significant years of service to Scouting and/or service to youth in the unit, district, council or community. This service is rendered within the community, inside and outside of Scouting.
