“I have no idea just who all helped get that wonderful program together; but I will never forget it. I still find it unreal that part of that was for me. I thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.”— Mary Kraft (2015 Keystone Honoree)

2019 Keystone Sponsors:


The Annual Keystone Awards are the “Don’t Miss Event of the Year”.

This year’s 9th Annual Keystone Awards will be held on April 18, 2019, at the WYO Theater

Every year The Hub celebrates and honors three individuals who have dedicated their lives to our community.  The Keystone Awards are a one of a kind celebration, modeled after the Kennedy Center Honors.  With unique entertainment, formal awards presentations, a dream vacation raffle, delicious catering, and an after-party, the Keystone Awards is the event to attend!

Event tickets can be purchased at the WYO Theater Online Box Office starting in January.   Tickets are $75 and include a catered reception, awards presentation, and awards show.   Tickets are available for students, veterans and registered Hub on Smith patrons for $35.

This Years Honorees

Dick and Tami Davis

As long time supporters of the Arts, Richard (known to many as “Dick”) and Tami are a great example of giving back to the community. Both Richard, principal in the law firm Davis & Cannon, LLP, and Tami, have served on a number of local foundation boards, including Sheridan College, the William F. and Lorene W. Welch Foundation, the Joe F. and the Roberta H. Napier Foundation. Founders of Sheridan’s youth theater organization, Tandem Productions that celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, the Davises have worked tirelessly to support the Carriage House Theater, WYO Theater and many other organizations focused on shaping the community into a rich, culturally aware place to live through the Arts.

Don Julian

Don has served as Activities Director and head football coach for Sheridan County School District #2, positively influencing hundreds of young people along the way. His effect on the record books — as well as on the lives of the countless students who learned and played under his tutelage is difficult to illustrate as he has not only been a coach, but a role model as well. Don passionately instills the values of respect, perseverance and teamwork to everyone lucky enough to work with him. As the Activities Director for Sheridan High School he has worked hard to ensure that students not only succeed on the field, but in the classroom as well. Most recently lauded for bringing home 3 back-to-back State Football Championships, Don may be best known for remaining humble, despite his success. Currently, Don is working with an ardent group of community volunteers helping to spearhead a new park – The Doubleday Sports Complex – that will allow children and adults the opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities and build a foundation for a community focused on family values.


Tom Scott

After returning to the Sheridan area following his retirement, Tom has remained a driving force in business and philanthropy. He has served on the Wyoming Business Council Board, was Co-Chair of the Senior Center’s major fundraising campaign, has been involved with the Brinton Museum and Sheridan Ice M&M Center campaign, and is a longtime supporter of the Special Olympics. More recently, he has recently become involved with Leadership Wyoming, impacting the next generation of business leaders through mentoring. An active member of the community, Tom says that his family and values have always focused on making Sheridan a better place to live for future generations.

The Keystone Awards also recognizes outstanding high school and Sheridan College students as “Keys to the Stone”. The 2019 Keys to the Stone will be announced at a later time.
