FARMINGTON -- Miss Davis County, Ellie Tucker, was presented with the Sadie Huish Memorial Scholarship Service Award during Thursday's Miss Utah preliminary competition.
Tucker was recognized for her work with Hope Kids.
Eagle Mountain residents Zac and Tiffany Huish began the Utah Chapter of The Cure Starts Now foundation in 2009. The foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for cancer.
The Huishes' daughter, Sadie, 6, died June 25, 2009, from diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma after fighting the aggressive brain cancer for 16 months, said Neka Roundy, Davis County Community and Economic Development staff member. The scholarship award is in Sadie's honor.
The public can meet Tucker from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at the Sweets Gala and Auction in Room 131 of the Davis County Administration building, 61 S. Main St., Farmington.
