Nebo Excels in Utah County Math Contest

Nebo School District had eight schools place in the top ten of the Utah County Math contest. Coming in first place is Aktin’s class from Spring Lake Elementary. Nebo had nine placers out of the top ten students. Excellent work.

Overall class scores are the average number of correct answers out of the students in that class. At least 10 students from the class must have played in order to get an average score.

Springville Councilman, Dean Olsen, has a lot to smile about as he honors two outstanding students at Springville’s Mayor Recognition Awards. Standing next to Mr. Olsen are Lila Blaser and Kyler Wood. 

Both Westside Elementary students were nominated by their teachers.  Ms. Bair wrote in her nomination that Lila is a “student who consistently strives to do her best in everything she does. Students look to her as a leader because she is respectful and friendly with everyone.”
