Twenty-two Utahns have been recognized for their efforts to make Utah a more diverse and inclusive place to live, work and play.

This year’s Living Color Awards, sponsored by Living Color Utah and Utah Business magazine, will honor the awardees at the fourth annual Living Color Gala on Friday, September 9 from 5-8:30 p.m.  

The recipients range from community workers, cultural ensembles, local and state lawmakers, activists and the only Black CEO of a Utah tech unicorn, a term that refers to a company that has reached a one-billion-dollar valuation.

Sheri's career in radio began at 7 years old in Los Angeles, California with a secret little radio tucked under her bed that she'd fall asleep with, while listening to The Dr. Demento Radio Show. She went on to produce the first science radio show in Utah in 1999 and has been reporting local, national and international stories ever since. After a stint as news director at KZYX on northern California's Lost Coast, she landed back at UPR in 2021.
