Outstanding Service Award
The Healing Field is the display of thousands of American flags along the Sandy Promenade and in front of Sandy City Hall each year around September 11th. After the 2012 Healing Field event, there was some question as to whether or not the event would continue. Shauna Jorgensen stepped up and took on the task of putting on the Healing Field in 2013, 2014 and 2015. She recruited help and volunteers, organized new supporting events, and did everything she could to make the Healing Field a bigger part of the community.
Even after her partner left due to the enormous time obligations, Shauna persisted and picked up even more of the responsibilities. However, not only has she put on the Healing Field, but she has taken any proceeds from the event and used them to support Homes for Heroes, a non-profit organization to help veterans and first responders purchase a home. Shauna is a great example of patriotism and tireless service in our Sandy community.
