Each year, the Brigham Awards seek to recognize five BYU students, faculty, or staff for their genuine commitment, example, and contributions to others throughout the world and/or the BYU community. The awards will be given to those who demonstrate consistent qualities of selflessness, charity, and service to others. This year, our professor Marv Gardner was given this distinguished award along with four other students. Congratulations!
