Nebo Hero, Amy Banks, teacher at Diamond Fork Junior, recently attended the Assembly on Literature for the Adolescents conference through the National Council of Teachers of English in St. Louis, Missouri. Mrs. Banks was the recipient of the Gallo Grant award, given to only two teachers in the United States. She was presented with the award at the Saturday morning breakfast and the first session of the conference on Monday.
Authors Rick Riordan and Neal Schusterman were the keynote speakers at the breakfast. She also received a box of about 50 new young adult books for attending, of which some were Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs), meaning they won't be released until sometime in 2018. (While in St. Louis, Amy was able to visit the famous St. Louis Arch as well as eat some true mid-western BBQ.)
Nebo and Diamond Fork Junior are so proud of Mrs. Banks.
