Posted By Justin Ruen, Monday, June 22, 2020

Twin Falls Mayor and AIC President Suzanne Hawkins was honored with the Harold Hurst Award for her outstanding contributions to the association on June 11 during the AIC Virtual Annual Conference June 10-12, 2020.

The Harold Hurst Award is given annually to a city official who demonstrates exemplary performance in city government and who has contributed to the accomplishments of the Association of Idaho Cities. The award is named for Harold Hurst, the mayor of Heyburn for 24 years and a Past President of AIC.

Suzanne has served on the Twin Falls City Council since May 2012 and was elected Mayor in January of this year.  She has been actively engaged in AIC, serving on the Legislative Committee and currently as President.

In addition to her service to the City of Twin Falls, Suzanne has co-owned Computer Connection with her husband and currently works for Edward Jones.  Suzanne was recognized as one of Idaho Business Review’s Women of the Year in 2019.

"Suzanne has led AIC through what was likely the most difficult year in the Association's history,” said AIC Executive Director Kelley Packer.  “She dealt with extremely sensitive issues with compassion, resolve and strength.” 

Suzanne has been a champion for youth engagement and the Twin Falls Youth Council, and has played a vital role in mentoring these future leaders.   

For her exceptional service to the association, we are proud to recognize Suzanne with the Harold Hurst Award.
