A special dinner and program were held May 7, 2014 to honor young women who have earned their Young Women Recognition Award.

These endeavors were overseen and approved by leaders and parents. Those honored were Emily Andreola, Savannah Lee, Morgan Hafen, Estelle Hafen, Accassia Berg, Kennedi Ludvigson, Janella Fiso, Kallie Graves, Shania Galindo, Bernice Fiso, McKenna Fielding, Shanna Glendon, Leah Leavitt, Mikayla Brotherson, Emily Leavitt, Riley Heath, Haley Allen, Kaydee Bingham, Jamie Fails, Rachel Cook, Resha Bunker and Cassadee Reber.
The program was organized by Ashley Bunker and consisted of a wonderful dinner for the honored young women and their parents followed by a program attended by all the young men and women of the Mesquite Nevada Stake. Special musical numbers and inspiring talks were presented to the young people and their leaders, stake presidency, and bishops.
