SANDY — The city has bestowed its highest honor on a Canyons School District employee and longtime Sandy councilman — and a park will be named after him.
Scott Cowdell in February was named the recipient of the Noal Bateman Award, named for a noted volunteer and humanitarian.
In addition, the former Center Street Park, 8920 S. 150 East, has been renamed after Cowdell, the school district's custodial coordinator and a 23-year member of the Sandy City Council. The council honored Cowdell for his lifelong advocacy in helping to secure state and local funds for improvements on streets, sidewalks, parks and roads.
Cowdell and his family are lifelong residents of Sandy, with his roots spanning back five generations. He is serving his eighth term on the Sandy City Council. He helped organize the annual Heritage Festival held each September to celebrate Sandy’s history.
