Twenty-eight projects from the Junior/Senior Division and 100 projects from the Elementary Division will advance to the Central Utah Science and Engineering Fair at BYU.  Congratulations to all of Nebo’s science winners.

Nebo’s Fine Arts Specialist, Julie Christofferson, Inducted into UMEA Hall of Fame

Julie began teaching music in the summer of 1976 helping with the Jr. High feeder school marching band (Mt. Jordan Jr. High) to her assigned school; Jordan High. The previous year Jordan had only 13 students involved in any kind of instrumental music.  There was nowhere to go but up.  Thanks to a very kind, mentoring choir teacher, Rod Zabriskie, building the program was less intimidating.  The concert/marching band eventually grew to 80 and the jazz, orchestra, and guitar numbers were solid; and Jordan High boasted the first AP Music Class in the Salt Lake Valley.
