We are extremely grateful to Mr. Aaron Crane (Creative Director of KCSS Television) for including St. George Masonic Lodge's presentation as part of their Community Events programing. It turned out to be a very special night and are appreciative of having our Masonic Lodge activity presented in this manner.
Brothers, family, friends and special guests were treated to an extraordinary evening at St. George Masonic Temple. On Wednesday, May 7, a capacity crowd filled the Lodge room including Professor Seegmiller, his family, numerous students from Dixie State University and media coverage who recorded the event and later presented it as part of a featured story on various St. George News channels.
Lisa Hopkins-Seegmiller, Professor Seegmiller's wife and Tony Award winner for her exceptional work on Broadway, inspired the crowd by singing her beautiful rendition of “Climb Every Mountain.”
Brother Zach Reed, on behalf the Lodge, presented her with a beautiful bouquet of red roses. Professor Travis Seegmiller than gave a lecture concerning challenges in his own life that lead him back to where he was born and dedication as a scholar, attorney, civic leader and dedicated educator.
Worshipful Gerardo Flores then with well-thought-out and delivered words, presented a special plaque honoring the Professor as the Masonic Lodge’s “2017 Educator of the Year.”
Following the event, TV. interviews and pictures were taken and refreshments were served in the dining hall. St. George Masonic Lodge would like to extend a very special thank you to our Brother Zach Reed for his recommendation of Professor Seegmiller and for his part in creating a night which will be long remembered.
