Nebo's Barnett Elementary's Student Lighthouse Team was invited to bring four students to the Utah State Capitol on February 16, 2017, to have breakfast with state representatives and state senators. Students had the opportunity to discuss leadership and why it is important to teach leadership in schools and in our government. After breakfast, students toured the Capitol Building and even visited Govenor Herbert's office. The students were recognized by name on the floor of the senate by Senator Deidre Henderson from Nebo School District area. It was a wonderful experience for these students to practice their leadership skills!

Congratulations to Ien Richins for answering the "Where are we Wednesday?" challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
