Outstanding People and Businesses Awarded the Prestigious Crystal Bowl

Every year, Weber County presents the Crystal Bowl Award to a business, an individual, and an employee who has made a difference in Weber County. Crystal bowls have the ability to amplify and produce a pure and powerful sound that resonates for a long period of time. It is comparable to the generous people in our community that volunteer their time and resources, and whose actions continue to resonate throughout the community.

This year we honor three exceptional representatives who have made meaningful impacts on Weber County. Their accomplishments represent the best ideas, actions, and spirit that epitomize the inspirational spirit of our community.

Please join us in congratulating each of this year’s Crystal Bowl Award recipients!

Our first Crystal Bowl award goes to an exceptional organization in our community.
Since 2005, when they made their first vat of cheese, Pat Ford and Tim Welsh’s mission has been to “use business as a force for good.” This philosophy permeates every aspect of their cheese creamery. Not only does the company make incredibly tasty cheese, but for the past three years, they’ve donated thousands of pounds of cheddar to the local food banks—feeding thousands of families and encouraging the community to do the same. Today we salute Pat, Tim, and all their workers for showing how businesses in our community are at their best when they inspire us to help others.

Our second Crystal Bowl recipient is Steffani Ebert.
Steffani is the first county employee to receive the award. She works as a Senior Accountant in the Clerk/Auditor’s office. We are so thankful that Steffani has chosen to work at Weber County for the last 28 years. We appreciate her hard work and dedication. She is always willing to help her fellow employees. Steffani is an example of what a great work ethic is. Today, we are especially proud to honor Steffani Ebert for all the hard work she does for all of us in Weber County.

Our final Crystal Bowl Award goes to an inspirational young woman, Addison Redd.
This year, Addison won the prestigious Miss High School Rodeo America Award, beating out 42 competitors from all over the United States. Addison embodies the long tradition of Western values, following in her mother’s footsteps as a Rodeo queen.

Addison began riding horses at the age of four and proudly represented the values of her family, the association, and Weber County throughout the competition. The contestants were not only judged for their abilities to ride, but also for how they stayed true to the virtues of Western Heritage, family bonding, and regard for their animal partners.

Addison represents the optimism we have for Weber County’s young people. We are blessed with so many exceptional teenagers, and Addison continues to inspire her peers and her community with her exceptional accomplishments.
