Governor Issues Statement on Passing of Beverley Taylor Sorenson
May. 28, 2013
"Utah mourns the loss of one of our finest matriarchs with the passing of the ever-gracious Beverley Taylor Sorenson. Always the dedicated teacher, her extraordinary life has made a difference for thousands of Utah schoolchildren through her tireless support of arts education, not only through her generous financial contributions by the Art Works for Kids Foundation, but especially through her vision and drive to demonstrate meaningful educational outcomes and the lasting value of incorporating art and culture across educational curricula. Jeanette and I offer our sincere condolences and love to her eight children and extended family at this most difficult time."
