The Titan Awards is held annually to honor individuals and businesses that have risen to the call to serve and strengthen the community. Along with Bioteau, this year’s honorees are former Brigham Young University head football coach LaVell Edwards and Sandy City Mayor Tom Dolan.
The Greater Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce Titan Awards were created to honor individuals and businesses recognized in the community as leaders, innovators, and philanthropists who have made their lasting mark on the state through their efforts to improve the community. They have provided economic growth and jobs while also investing in the community through donations to education, the arts, and other community projects and services.

Dedicated to community service and collaboration, she currently serves on the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce Board of Governors, EDCUtah Executive Committee, and the Salt Lake Convention and Visitors Bureau Board of Trustees. Nationally, she serves on the Manufacturing Institute of the National Association of Manufacturing, the Board of Directors for Regence Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and is the previous National President of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges. She is a member of RC2020 (Renewal and Change 2020), a selected leadership consortium of metropolitan community colleges across the country and a presidential advisor for the Community College Research Center at Columbia Teacher’s College.
In addition to the 2012 Titan award, she received the YWCA’s Outstanding Achievement Award in Education, the Salt Lake Chamber’s Athena Award, and was recently named by the Utah Business Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Utah.
