Vision Award

The William M. Lyles Vision Award honors individuals who’ve had a positive impact on the Central Valley by recognizing its potential as a region of flourishing entrepreneurship and innovation. The Vision Award is made annually as a tribute to a leader who’s shown dedication to students, the community and the region. The Vision Award was established in 2010 to honor the substantial contribution William M. Lyles made to the Central Valley as an advocate for innovation and entrepreneurship. Each year, an individual will be selected to receive the Vision Award with the presentation to occur at the annual Lyles Center banquet held in May.
