 Get Your Glamour On

The Women's Success Center is updating our look! We're producing brand new printed materials, updating our event booth, and redesigning our website.
To help us out, students from UVU's Modeling Club and the Cultural Envoy Leadership Program joined us for a glamorous photo shoot. New friends were made, pizza was served, and only a few of us got hit by a surprise sprinkler attack.

Utah Women's Walk Honoree: 
Hannah Blakeslee Morley

Hannah Blakeslee Morley is representative of the common pioneer woman in Utah who may seem notable to those of us who are descendants, but in reality was just another pioneer woman settling in Utah who did so at extreme personal cost. 

Enroute to her final home in Utah, Hannah lost three of her four sons and her first husband, Edwin. After arriving in the Salt Lake Valley in 1948, she and her second husband, Isaac Morley, were asked to move by Brigham Young with sixty other families south to Manti. There, they carved dugouts in the hillside in order to survive the first relentless winter. While in Manti, Hannah faced tremendous physical deprivations as well as conflicts with the Sanpitch Indians who at one point took her baby, Simeon, as a hostage until supplies were sent from the north. 

As one of the few pioneer women who wrote a journal while crossing the plains, Hannah represents the thousands of common pioneer women who entered the state. Through their uncommon acts of bravery and formidable courage, they helped to create settlements throughout the Intermountain West.  The statue pictured in the Utah Women's Walk represents the reunion of Hannah with her son.
