Many of Nebo Elementary students had the opportunity to attend the BYU Womens’ Basketball game against Weber through generous donors in the community. The students had an amazing time. They loved seeing themselves on the large jumbotron, dancing to music, eating snacks, and cheering on BYU with, “Rise and Shout! Go Cougars!” The Cougars didn’t disappoint and won the basketball game.
