Thanks to all the students, parents, and faculty that helped us win the Sportsmanship Award from the UHSAA.
Congratulations to all of these students!
Congratulations to Haley Medford! She was selected for the A.C.E. (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) Award provided by the West Jordan Exchange Club. This award is given to students who have overcome challenges in their personal or family life and continue to strive for excellence. She was honored at a breakfast on March 14th, and received a $500 scholarship. The Exchange Club then selected her to advance on to the Rocky Mountain District for further award. Haley is an inspiration to many as she has battled Leukemia for the last year and a half but continues to smile and accomplish her work, earning top grades. We are proud of Haley and wish her the best!

She received the honorable mention Violet Richardson award for service. She and the 1st place winner were honored at a banquet on Feb. 27th, where she spoke on her experiences with service.
