Exceptional People<br />

Life is better in <strong>Provo</strong>. Of course, that doesn’t happen without our hard-working population.<br />

Our high quality of life and leading role in innovation doesn’t happen without the<br />

talented and forward thinking people who call our city home. <strong>Provo</strong> has become nationally<br />

recognized as a great place to raise a family, get a job, volunteer, start a business, and play.<br />

These facts have only bolstered the high quality of people who are picking <strong>Provo</strong> as their<br />

choice to make a home and career.<br />

Don’t let geography fool you. Yes, <strong>Provo</strong> is right in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, but<br />

has a unique international feel. People travel from all parts of the world to <strong>Provo</strong>. A high<br />

percentage of <strong>Provo</strong> residents speak a second language. There is a diversity here that is<br />

apparent by the litany of options for food and entertainment. Our diversity helps us reach<br />

out to the rest of the world to volunteer or do business.<br />

There is a reason why Utah County is lovingly called "Happy Valley", and <strong>Provo</strong> sits right at<br />

the heart of that valley. The people are full of compassion and a desire to do good. This is<br />

obvious in the expansive volunteer programs hosted by the city and various other organizations<br />

throughout our community.
