Utah Mothers Honored at Capitol

The Utah Association of American Mothers announced the selection of the 2011 Utah Mother of the Year and Young Mother recently with a trip to the Utah State Capitol. The 2011 Utah Mother of the Year is Sally Fitzgerald Olsen.

The 2011 Utah Young Mother is Emi Dalton Edgley. 

Both women were recognized by Utah Governor, Gary Herbert. Linda Knavel and Marilyn Harris were also honored as Merit Mothers.  

After meeting with Governor Herbert,  the women were taken to the floor of the Senate where they were recognized and asked to speak. Members of the House of Representatives congratulated the honored mothers as well.  The Legislature read a citation honoring each mother and the Utah State Association of American Mothers. It was a wonderful day for Utah Mothers and their families.
