In memory of Stephen Covey

Dr. Covey’s impact for good, which has been felt worldwide, cannot be overstated. He is an icon and a leader in the truest sense and will be missed the world over, including at Utah Valley University.

As a university, we will be forever grateful for his support as a former UVU Foundation board member and as a founding member of UVU’s National President’s Advisory Board, which he remained actively engaged in for many years. He was also front and center in the institution’s effort to achieve university status and in crafting UVU’s mission statement. Dr. Covey will never be forgotten at Utah Valley University and, as a campus community, we express our deepest sympathies to his wife, Sandra, and the entire Covey family.

    Stephen Covey has been one of the great heroes of my life ever since I first heard him speak when I was 14 years old. His words and writings continue to inspire me. Everyone should be so fortunate to have had a Stephen Covey influence his or her life.

    Dr. Covey was a great friend and adviser to UVU’s Center for the Advancement of Leadership for the past 10 years. He spoke at and attended many of the Annual Leadership Conferences where he warmly addressed and inspired thousands of high school students and teachers to live proactively using our values as principles to write our personal missions to guide our lives.

    Covey also admitted to UVU’s student body two years ago, that it was he who instigated President Matt Holland to apply for his distinguished position, of which we are grateful!

    I will be forever indebted to Dr. Covey for the inspiring teachings and contributions to leadership he made throughout his life, but especially to UVU, and to my life personally. He truly “walked his talk” to the very end.

    May God give him eternal rest & may his soul rest in peace!
    I. express our deepest sympathies to his wife, Sandra, and the entire Covey family.

    I took the 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People class that is offered here at UVU. His insights were so practical. I can’t even begin to imagine how his book has altered my life.

    I attended a keynote speech he gave on campus a few years back. After he was finished, I walked up to him with some questions. He took the time to answer them. I was so impressed by that. He was a busy man, but he gave me about 15 minutes of his time. He will be missed.
