About the award:
This scholarship was established in 2006 by the Salt Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau in memory of Dianne Nelson Binger. Dianne served at the Bureau for 18 years, where she progressed from Convention Sales Director to Vice President, to Senior Vice President and, in 2001, President and CEO. She promoted Salt Lake City and Utah as a travel destination and knew the tremendous cultural and economic value that tourism brings. Diane took great efforts to mentor the careers of people around her, and nothing pleased her more than seeing their achievements.
