Lynn Pett and Kelly Matthews each recently received the 2011 William N. Jones Trustee of Excellence award in honor of their volunteer service with Intermountain Healthcare.
Pett and Matthews were selected from among Intermountain's 450 trustees for the award, which is given annually to board members who have been exceptionally effective in helping Intermountain achieve its mission. This honor is named for Bill Jones, who chaired Intermountain Healthcare's board from its creation in 1975 until 1990.
