Congratulations to recipients of the Lt. Governor’s Volunteer Recognition Certificate in February of 2022. The contributions made by these volunteers make lasting impacts on communities across our state.


Daniel Armel, Nominated by TriCounty Health Department MRC

This MRC Volunteer showed up on a daily basis to help do pretty much anything we needed help with. From setting up for max vaccinations right down to cleaning toilets. We could not have kept up without his help.


Katie Bristol, Nominated by Uintah County Library and Uintah County Heritage Museum

Katie volunteers at the Uintah County Heritage Museum by working on computer projects and learning computer skills, by putting stickers on Museum merchandise, and by greeting Museum visitors.


Makayda Cloward, Nominated by Uintah County Library

Makayda has been a teen volunteer for me for over a year now and has quickly become a big part of my programs. She has calmed down a crazy youth council by coming in and stepping up to be the Vice President and was even voted President for this year’s term. She has learned the ins and outs of the Library so well that she trains new volunteers as they come in for me and has even supervised some. This has been a big help to me this year and last year and has freed me up to help our teen patrons that come in more often lately for individual help. She has contributed to major projects including, the Prom Drive, Summer Reading, Youth Council Retreats, Food Drives, Harry Potter Night, and our huge Christmas event. She has even completely taken over our Teen Book Box Subscriptions program, picking out books for patrons, packing them for pick up, and creating themes. And has helped me prep the teens and my area for when I had to leave for my heart surgery. Makayda can step into any role at the Library when needed with great maturity and has started to be known as my little assistant. She has made a huge impact on the teen volunteers, youth council, and our young adult area since starting.
