SALT LAKE CITY Oct. 13, 2015 – Over the weekend, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes was honored as a 2015 STARBlazer by the Philippine American Business Improvement and Development Association (Phil-Am BID) at a gala ceremony hosted at the Marriott Marquis in San Diego, the third highest Filipino-American populated city in the United States. The STARBlazer award recognizes members of the community for their integrity and professional accomplishments, and pays tribute to their selfless service in the true spirit of “giving back.”
“The lessons of my Filipino elders have made me a stronger American, husband and father,” said Attorney General Reyes. “Any success that I’ve been blessed with comes from God and my family. I am grateful to stand in such prestigious company not only to receive the STARBlazer honor – but also the support of the Fil-Am Community of San Diego.”
California Congressman Juan Vargas, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Deputy Secretary Nani Coloretti and California Governor Appointments Secretary Mona Pasquil also received a 2015 STARBlazer Award at the Gala.
Founded in 2005, Phil Am BID is a non-profit organization comprised of a diverse group of business leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals, community advocates, military officers, and public officials whose good character, integrity, leadership, kindness of heart, and strong love for the community unite them in their advocacy.
