Welcome. I'm so happy
I'm Linda Kennedy, a first-generation college graduate.
You could say I'm here to make a little history.

Please join me by looking at my work here. It's a by-product of the sacrifices of strong women who preceded me and to whom
I am profoundly grateful.
Utah's Religion Revolution
A 1979 report in The New York Times reported 85 percent of the state then were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Today, Latter-day Saints still make up the highest percentage of the state's population at 56 percent. Still, PPRI American Values Atlas for 2021, as reported in a 2022 Deseret News article, shows there's more religious diversity in Utah now.
According to Mike Moon, associate director at UServeUtah, featured in this 2020 video series, the different faith traditions in Utah share a passion for community service.
