To celebrate KSB’s 40th Anniversary, we had a special guest speaker who can weave Sedona into a broader context. Lisa Schnebly Heidinger is a very dynamic speaker, story teller, and accomplished author. Lisa’s love of Arizona is as deep as her roots; Sedona was named for her great-grandmother, Sedona Schnebly. For 30 years, Lisa has been a journalist, finding and recording Arizona’s stories, first as a newspaper and television reporter, then as a columnist and author. She has written six books and countless articles about aspects of Arizona
February 14, 2012 was the Arizona State Centennial, and Lisa’s most recent book is the official State Centennial book, “Arizona: 100 Years Grand.” This book was a six-year labor of love. Besides writing our state’s official centennial book, Lisa serves on the Arizona Historical Advisory Commission and the Arizona Centennial Commission, as well as the Centennial Foundation Board.
Tom & Shondra were our Masters of Ceremonies for our Awards of Excellence presentations.
