The Nebo Education Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District. Board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students. Many of the donations received are for selected projects, yet a substantial amount is available for the greatest need. Greatest need monies are considered for grants submitted by area schools.
Nebo’s Monica Rudd, a special education teacher at Sierra Bonita, was honored at the state's Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders (CCBD) conference. Kendra McPherson nominated Monica because she believes Monica honestly cares about and loves children with behavioral disorders.
Just this past week, 20 Nebo female students attending the Advanced Learning Center (ALC) along with the architecture teacher and pilot, Ms. Adriane Wilson, and the CTE specialist, Mrs. Ronda Hair met at the Salt Lake National airport to join a group of 120 girls from all over the state of Utah to take part in the 2019 WING Flight. This WING experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Nebo students.
Congratulations to Cherry Creek Elementary, in Nebo School District, and their school PR person, Jan Grotegut, for earning the Nebo #Hashtag Award. This award is given to the school that communicates to their parents and students, in a variety of ways, the events and important news items happening at school. Cherry Creek has posted over 15 stories a month. The school also has approximately 200 percent of their student enrollment connected on social media to get the latest news from the school.
The Nebo Title VI Native American Indian program held their 5th Annual Leadership Day for their junior high and high school students and administration. Naat’áánii in the Navajo language means “leader.” The root of this word means to plan, so Naat’áánii Day teaches those to use their thinking and planning for leadership.
Attendees at Naat’áánii Day were able to hear from Sahar Khadejenoury. Sahar is a TV/Film producer, a digital storyteller, a former educator, as well as an advocate for Native American rights within the entertainment industry.
Young Women from across Nebo School District were able to experience a unique celebration of Ada Lovelace Day at Qualtrics in Provo, Utah today. As part of Women’s Leadership Development at Qualtrics, students learned about career opportunities and growth for women in technology fields. Students were able to tour the Qualtrics Provo beautiful facilities and unique offices. The students participated in breakout leadership sessions and were part of an engaging panel discussion with women leaders in research, marketing, and engineering.
The Nebo Education Foundation board had a large number of grants in October. Here are a few more that received funds to meet the many needs across the district. This Foundation Board functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses as well as fundraisers where all the money goes to educate students in Nebo School District. Thank you to all those that so generously supported Nebo students through donations.
Congratulations to the following teachers that continue to enrich the lives of students.
A big thank you to Maple Mountain High football players for taking time out of their busy schedules to read to Sierra Bonita students. Nebo loves seeing our athletes being Nebo Heroes to our younger students. These younger students look up to athletes on and off the field. Thank you!
