Students at Salem Junior High were surrounded by a sea of “I Voted” stickers and talk of candidates and politics on Monday morning when the school put on its first-ever mock-election. All students were given the opportunity to vote for a new US President and Utah Governor, with ballots just like those the adults will be given, except this was an election where students were the voters.
The Nebo Education Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District. Board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students. Many of the donations received are for selected projects, yet a substantial amount is available for the greatest need. Greatest need monies are considered for grants submitted by area schools.
Nebo School Board of Education congratulated Julie Sumsion, Springville High School, as a State Champion in the 4A Cross Country 3 Mile.
