Utah Jazz Owner Gail Miller Selected As Congressional Award Foundation’s Horizon Award Recipient
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Congressional Award Foundation announced that they will honor Utah Jazz and Larry H. Miller Group of Companies Owner/Chairman Gail Miller with the Horizon Award.
The foundation will recognize Miller at the annual Gold Medal Ceremony on Capitol Hill on June 20, 2019.
A special recognition from the Joint Leadership Commission of The Congressional Award Foundation and its Board of Directors, the Horizon Award recognizes individuals from the private sector who “have worked to expand opportunities for all Americans through their own personal contributions.”
“Gail embodies the spirit of this award by demonstrating thought for others in her decision-making and using her influence to shape communities for the better,” said Paxton K. Baker, Chairman of The Congressional Award National Board of Directors. “Gail’s story is about finding true individuality, and her life’s work serves as an extraordinary example for our nation’s youth, particularly young women.”
Drew Brees, America Ferrera, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Bob Lanier, Wynton Marsalis, Cal Ripken Jr., Pat and Emmitt Smith and Arnold Schwarzenegger are previous award recipients.
Gail and her late husband Larry established one of the largest privately-owned group of companies in the western United States, with ownership of over 60 car dealerships, the Utah Jazz, Megaplex Theatres and more.
In April of 2018, Miller published the book “Courage to Be You: Inspiring Lessons from an Unexpected Journey.” The book’s central focus is about finding purpose. She shares anecdotes about the role faith played in shaping her as a person, the strength of women, and how she measures wealth.
