The Charlee Award:
Named after Charlee Nelson, who’s name graces the 2014 law passed by Utah to allow cannabis-based therapy to Utahans with retractable epilepsy, the award is presented to a person for Meritorious Service to the People of Utah with Epilepsy
Given to a person or a group that best creates a foundation for epilepsy awareness throughout the state or locally within Utah.
Oft times, people that give the most are not singled out for their service but do so quietly with no expectation of personal gain. For these people, the Award’s Committee selects to present the Purple Star.
Board Member of the Year:
Board Members serve tirelessly and without pay, year after year, often sacrificing personal time and resources to help the people of Utah with epilepsy. They are not allowed to engage in any activities that would provide personal gain, and are generally the unsung heroes’ of the Association.
