THIS IS MICHAEL DE GROOTE FROM THE SALT LAKE CHAMBER, WITH YOUR METRO BUSINESS REPORT
Tonight the Salt Lake Chamber and the community honor Don Cash and Nick Rose of Questar as Giants In Our City. In their combined 60 years of service, Don and Nick transformed Questar into a major integrated Western energy company that takes special pride in being headquartered in Utah.
Under Don and Nick's direction, Questar expanded its contributions to economic development, education, cultural arts, and the overall well being of the community. They created endowment funds for higher education and cultural arts. They organized the Questar Volunteer Team, through which employees donate thousands of hours to community-service. They also served as chairs of the Salt Lake Chamber's Board of Governors and helped create the Economic Development Corporation of Utah.
Don and Nick provided long-standing support for Salt Lake's quest to host the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, culminating with Questar Gas being named the Games' Official Natural Gas Supplier.
But it is from the perspective of needy children that they truly take on giant-like stature. With Don and Nick's support, Questar volunteers have constructed playgrounds; hosted Christmas parties in disadvantaged areas; raised funds for a children's abilities center; and supported a national conference to prevent child abuse, among various humanitarian projects.
For a lifetime of professional accomplishments and community service, for demonstrating the power of enlightened leadership and corporate citizenship, the Salt Lake Chamber is proud to recognize Questar leaders Don Cash and Nick Rose as Giants in Our City.
