The awards are given to one school each year, in acknowledgement of the school's commitment to freedom of speech and ideas. Dr. Alan Morgan, Chairman of the Freedom Committee and Tony Rasmussen, President-elect of the Provo Sertoma Club, presented the large, handsome, wood framed plaques with the Bill of Rights and The Declaration of Independence etched in brass. The Sertoma Club, an international organization, also encourages junior high students to participate in history classes, enter, essay competitions and take part in the American Heritage programs. One of the oldest service clubs in the United States, Sertoma means "service to mankind." Tom Rasmussen, a former student at UTC, told President Higbee he was "grateful to be in an area where there is such a fine college." Both men said they hoped the plaques would be displayed so that all UTC students and faculty could enjoy them and feel proud of their accomplishments. . .i Jo President J.
