Nebo District’s Legacy Mentoring coordinators presented to Nebo School Board this month. The Legacy Volunteer Mentoring program is designed to match a carefully screened adult volunteer (Mentor) with a child (Mentee) in a school environment.

Nebo Legacy Mentoring is a partnership project through the Parent Teacher Association and Brigham Young University funded with a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. Dr. Gary Wall, former school district superintendent, established this program during the 2008-09 school year.
