Dave Young, founder and president of Paragon Wealth Management, created the “Live Your Dream Scholarship” in 2010. There will be multiple scholarships awarded each year up to $2,000 each and can be used for tuition for any university in Utah for an undergraduate or graduate student. The scholarship was in inspired by his daughter, Katie. Katie’s husband, Byron, passed away unexpectedly on October 21, 2005. Byron was an employee at Paragon at the time. Byron was a dear colleague, friend, and family member. His tragic death came as an unexpected shock to everyone who knew him. He added joy and meaning to many people’s lives.

When Byron passed away, Katie was left to provide for herself and three-month-old daughter. She decided to go to college to receive her bachelor’s degree. Katie searched for scholarships, but had a difficult time finding one for women in her situation. Notwithstanding, Katie persevered and after much effort was able to complete her bachelor’s degree in just two and a half years.

The Living Dream Scholarship was created to help single mothers in similar situations complete college, become financially self sufficient, and accomplish their dreams.
