The Brigham Young University Alumni Association recently honored two BYU graduates from Salt Lake City with Alumni Community Service awards.
BYU President Rex Lee presented bronze plaques to Wilma Workman Gardner, retired business owner and church worker, and Bruce Lindsay, KSL-TV managing editor and news anchor.Gardner has served the community as a volunteer with unwed mothers and adoption groups, the PTA and Utah Associated Women.
She and her husband, the late Kenneth Gardner, were serving an LDS mission in India when he suddenly became ill and died. Upon her return, she managed the family's electrical supply company until her retirement. She recently accepted a call to serve another full-time mission for the LDS Church.
Since joining KSL-TV in 1974, Lindsay has produced numerous award-winning news and documentary features. From 1983 to 1988, he hosted "Prime Time Access," a nightly news magazine and won three Iris awards for best program in that format.
The program also won the Silver Medal at the New York Film and Video Festival. He co-anchors the 6:30 evening news and is the station's business news specialist. He received an MBA degree at the University of Utah.
The Alumni Association gives Community Service Award to graduates and former students who have distinguished themselves in their professions and in volunteer service.
