Utah Representative and former Carbon County resident, Margaret Dayton, will keynote the 27th Annual Women’s Conference hosted by the College of Eastern Utah and Zions Bank Women’s Financial Group on Friday, April 28 in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center. Dayton will speak on “My Perspective of Public Service.”
The annual conference offers 10 workshops including Self Hypnosis: Positive Change Today, Marilyn Rose Harber, CCHT; the History of Nine-Mile Canyon, Blaine A. Miller; How to Start a Small Business, Colleen Loveless; Grow What You Want, Where You Want It, Pam Sharp; Smart Women, Smart Money – 10 Strategies for Your Financial Success, Lori Chillingworth; Basics of Skin Care, Ashley Lueck; Women’s Health, Danielle Howa Pendergrass; Estate Planning: A Woman’s Issue, Matthew L. Mitton, J.D.; Identity Theft – Protecting Yourself Against People Hackers, Carol Walker; and Everything Women Want to Know About Credit But Are Afraid to Ask, Kathy Brandon.
This is the first year CEU has teamed with Zions Bank Women’s Financial Group in offering the conference, says conference chair, Dr.. Susan Polster. The banking group is adding a practical business aspect to the workshops that every woman in American could learn something from the pertinent information. We are excited to have their expertise.
Entertainment for the luncheon will be by local vocalist, Mary Lou Steele whose voice has been compared to Patsy Cline. The conference also includes the presentation of the Outstanding Woman of the Year. Last year’s recipient, Joyce Pierce, will name the 2006 winner during the luncheon, followed by Dayton’s remarks on her take of public service.
Dayton, who grew up in a military family, attended schools in several states. Since her parents are both Utah natives, they brought their family to Utah every summer. After graduating with a bachelor’s of science degree from the College of Nursing at Brigham Young University, Dayton has stayed in Utah. She and her husband, Dr … Lynn Taylor Dayton, lived in Price 14 years – and four of their children were born here.
While living in Price, she was involved in community service. Some of her service included PTA president at Mont Harmon Junior High School, President of the Carbon County Medical Alliance and chair of the CEU Board of Trustees. She has served in the Utah House of Representatives for the past 10 years and is currently running for the state senate.

CEU students’ cost is $5 per person to attend the conference, with the remainder of their fee being paid by ASCEU leadership.
