Founded in 2010, the Utah National Parks Council established the Influential Women in Scouting Award to pay tribute to women whose exemplary lives and activities have benefited the cause of Scouting.
The women are selected for the award by their noteworthy service and contributions made by women in the Utah National Parks Council who have shown through their lives and activities a desire to help youth. They also have effective involvement at the unit, district and council levels and a significant number of years in service to Scouting and/or service to youth in the community.
Thousands of hours have been spent and thousands of lives have been changed for good because of the efforts of these women. This year, twenty-four women will be recognized at the ceremony: DaLayn Bing, Nancy Brimhall, Thea Jo Buell, Kaye W. Carter, Carolyn Engstrom, Julene Furr, Debbie Grimm, Zaneta Hendrickson, Esther Hepworth, Betty Jean Herbert, Sheree Jacobson, Deb Jones, Corinne Macbean, Gayle Moore, Barbara Nielson, Ruth Marie Parker, Selma Porter, Lori Ricks, Colleen Scholz, Sharlene Skidmore, Vicki Stulce, Jill Taylor, Kathleen Tibbs, Kristeen and Van Wagoner.
