Norma Carr is the first Utah woman to serve as athletic director for both men's and women's sports programs. She was also the first woman to officiate both men's and women's basketball.

She started coaching at Davis High before becoming the first woman to coach Division I women's athletics at the University of Utah. She was the U.'s head volleyball coach and an assistant coach for basketball and softball. In 1989, Carr was named the athletic director for Salt Lake Community College.

The Cup event creates scholarships for current and future Salt Lake Community College students. All of the proceeds from the tournament go directly to benefit deserving Salt Lake Community College students.
On Monday, September 29, Salt Lake Community College President Deneece G. Huftalin honored former SLCC President Jay L. Nelson by dedicating the newly opened green space where the former Taylorsville Redwood Campus administration building once stood. Former President Jay L. Nelson was in office for 29 years while the school was still named Utah Technical College. The dedicated green space and the legacy fountain located east of the Student Center now show Nelson’s name, as well as his family’s, in the form of pave stones and a dedicated bench. Part of President Nelson’s legacy comes in the form of SLCC’s independent status; he didn’t allow the college to be absorbed into other institutions, providing an affordable technical education for citizens and creating a second home for many alumni and students. Former President Nelson’s son, Bruce Nelson, spoke on behalf of his three brothers and sister. Nelson talked about his life with his father and his childhood spent at SLCC while President Nelson was active.
