Snow College is pleased to announce that they will be awarding four honorary degrees during the commencement ceremony on Ephraim’s campus on April 29th. It is a unique year because all four of the honorary degrees are Snow College Alumni.
The honorary degrees will be awarded to Lt. Governor Spencer Cox and his wife Abby, as well as Mark and LeAnn Stoddard.
Both Spencer and Abby graduated from North Sanpete High School, Snow College, and Utah State University. Spencer continued his education at Washington and Lee University School of Law. The Cox’s currently reside in Fairview, Utah and they have both been heavily involved with the community.
Spencer is currently serving as Utah’s Lieutenant Governor and Abby is focusing on raising her four children three sons and one daughter. The Cox’s enjoy spending time with their family in the outdoors. Spencer plays a bass guitar in a local rock band and Abby ran her first marathon in October.
Mark and LeAnn Stoddard both graduated from Snow College and all four of their children have attended Snow College. Mark has attended Utah State University and Brigham Young University, and he has had a great deal of success in his professional career. He is currently working in the health care industry as the President and CEO of Central Valley Medical Center and Chairman of the Rural Health Group, Chairman of the Rural Health Foundation, and President of Rural Health Management Corporation.
LeAnn is currently the chair of the Snow College Foundation Board. She has been an active member of her community and considers her home and family her greatest achievement. The Stoddards give generously of both their time and resources to the College. They are recognized as Distinguished Alumni and received the CRD’s Beneficiary Award for their support.
An Honorary Degree is the highest degree that an institution can bestow upon an individual. The Snowdrift staff commends those who will receive these degrees and thanks them for their service to Snow College, the local community, and the state of Utah.
