Lehi Heritage Day 2021 Honorees

August 07, 2021

The Lehi Historical Society and Archives and Lehi City are pleased to announce the Lehi Heritage Day 2021 Honorees.

This year’s honorees are:

  • Paul & Karen Kirkpatrick
  • Dale H. & Carma G. Price
  • L. Kay & Sherlean Stone
  • Samuel K. & Jayleen Smuin Wycherley


Since 2014, the historical society has been selecting a handful of Lehi’s most valuable players to honor each year at Lehi Heritage Day. “It’s been so much fun to learn about these great people we have selected for this year’s celebration,” said Lara Bangerter, director of the historical society. “Each in their own way has done a lot to make Lehi a great place to live.

All of the honorees have given tremendous amounts of time to the betterment of Lehi. They are scout leaders, artists, educators, police officers, Lehi Civic Improvement Association members, church leaders, longtime club members and more.

Honorees will be celebrated in a Showcase Parade, Honoree Celebration with Lehi City Mayor Mark Johnson and the City Council, with a brick in the Walk of Fame Garden in front of the Legacy Center and with displays in the Senior Center during a greeting period from 4-6 p.m. Family, friends and the public are encouraged to attend to congratulate the honorees.

“Please come and help these wonderful people know how much we appreciate all they have done,” Bangerter said.

Sponsored by Lehi City and put on by the Lehi Historical Society and Archives, Lehi Heritage Day is created to honor Lehi’s beautiful past and celebrate those who have contributed so much to it. This year’s theme is “Back to the ‘60s,” with an emphasis placed on what Lehi residents did for entertainment during that time. All activities are free and for the public.

The day will go as follows:

  • Showcase Parade—2:30 p.m., will travel on Main Street from 400 East to Center Street.
  • Honoree Celebration—3 p.m., with the mayor and city council under a giant tent in front of the Legacy Center. Seating is limited; bring a lawn chair. During this event, honorees will be presented with their own brick in the Walk of Fame Garden.
  • Honorees greet visitors—4-6 p.m., in the Senior Center where there will be displays honoring them.
  • “Back to the ‘60s,” displays, activities and food (Chick-fil-A)—4-6 p.m., in the North Gym of the Legacy Center.
  • Classic Car Show—4-6 p.m., in the east parking lot of the Legacy Center. No entry fee.
