Six Generations Call Southern Utah University Home
Six Generations Call Southern Utah University Home
Nearly 125 years ago, the founders of Southern Utah University believed so strongly in the power of education that they risked their lives to build the school. Among those dedicated men and women was Lehi Willard Jones, a man willing to mortgage his home to support the dream of SUU. With that sacrifice, Jones began a legacy of his own through SUU and five generations later, his great-great-great-granddaughter Maren Marie Street will attend SUU in the fall.
