Congratulations Mrs. Keetch, MNJHS Speech Specialist!

Kjirsten Keetch, speech specialist at Mt. Nebo Junior, said of her recent Nebo Education Grant, “Thank you so much for the receipt of this grant that will be so helpful toward making improvements in the speech and language services we offer our students at Mt. Nebo Junior. With the SKILL program, I'll be implementing the strategies to improve comprehension of all types of reading and spoken narratives for students with language impairments. This will also help in areas such as vocabulary, sentence complexity, and comprehension. For me, this means a lot because language impairment is so complex, and if students don't have a solid foundation for the parts and flow of narratives, it is difficult for them to build on other language skills.  The students will be directly benefited from this generous donation.”

Thank you Nebo Education Foundation!

MNJHS Winter Sports Captains Academy

MNJHS winter sports captains recently had the opportunity to attend the Nebo School District Captains Academy.  This event focuses on the principles of good sportsmanship and team leadership skills.

Students participating from MNJHS were:

Mo Draper - Basketball

Enoch Vance - Wrestling

Brett Renzello - Basketball

Skylee Draper - Basketball

Zayden Godfrey - Basketball

'Chris Loveless, Assistant Principal at Payson High School and former coach, presented to the students on sportsmanship. He said this event has a tremendous impact on the students who participate.

“I think this is a great opportunity for students,” Loveless said. “They are able to learn some very important skills, interact with other students, and then they can return to their schools and influence their other teammates based on what they learn here.”

Dustin Smith, founder and president of the organization “Especially for Athletes” spoke to the students about leadership. He emphasized that leadership is thinking outward and being humble.

“It’s important to not get caught up in the ‘disease of me,’” Smith said. “Just because you’re a leader, it doesn’t meant that you deserve more recognition or praise or that you should be appreciated more than your counterparts. True leadership respects others.”

Troy Bohling, Coordinator of School Services, said that this event promotes camaraderie and good sportsmanship between the schools.

“What I love the most is to see the interaction between the tables,” Bohling said. “These students compete against each other all the time, but they like each other and it’s really fun to see them work together.”'- Nebo School District
