The Utah Valley University Christine M.

Durham, a current Utah Supreme Court Justice, served as the high court’s Chief Justice from 2002 to 2012. The award was created to recognize Justice Durham’s national work in judicial education and efforts to improve the administration of justice. This award honors her service over many years as well as honors those whose commitment to public service has made a serious impact of the lives of those served.
