On behalf of the BYU Management Society, Frank Layden will be honored at the 23rd Annual Distinguished Utahn event on June 14 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Layden was the cornerstone of the organization for more than 20 years as a head coach, general manager and president, helping establish the Jazz as an integral part of the Utah community and bringing national attention and respect to the franchise.

Past Distinguished Utahn honorees include Larry H. Miller, Lavell and Patti Edwards, Spencer Eccles, Jon and Karen Huntsman, and Governors Olene Walker and Michael Leavitt. Proceeds from the dinner and auction provide need-based scholarships for Utah high school seniors. For more information, please visit
