Congratulations to Perry Ewell for being recognized as the Outstanding Arts & Education Educator in Utah by the Artistic Resource for Teachers and Students, Inc. (A.R.T.S.).
Governor Gary R. Herbert recognized that the A.R.T.S. has fostered the development of cultural studies and fine arts education in our public schools as a collaborative effort between educators, businesses, government, and community and fine arts organizations.
Mr. Ewell’s nomination read in part:
Nebo School District’s students received over $9.6 million in scholarships across our five high schools.
Just one example of the many scholarships is the Rotary Club of Spanish Fork and the Spanish Fork/Salem Chamber of Commerce Scholarship. This group funds scholarships for students graduating from Salem Hills High, Spanish Fork High, and Maple Mountain High through their golf tournament held every spring. Thank you to all those businesses and individuals that made the following scholarships available.
These Nebo School District employees are following this year’s theme “Come Join Us” in unity and service. Summer is a time to create unity and renew the spirit. These employees inhaled some fresh air and saw sweeping scenic sights of the mountains and trees that are part of Nebo School District.
The four wheeler ATV ride was up Monk’s Hallow (answer to Wednesday’s Challenge).
