Submitted by tyler.lewis on Wed, 12/18/2019 - 15:05
We want to give a shout out to sophomore artist, Julia Hart, for her artwork, a 9"x 12" pencil drawing referencing a 1905 photographic portrait by Edward Curtis of the Sioux Lakota warrior 'Chief Three Horses.' This drawing was the only artwork chosen to represent all of the students in Nebo district this year and was accepted to the Utah State Senate Visual Arts competition, which is a serious award!

Go see the MMHS art show up in the auditorium hallway! Unfortunately, it won't be up for very long, as we're taking 13 of the entries (those with ribbons) on to represent our school at the Springville Museum of Art next week.If you have a chance sometime, you might like to see what some of the students have been up to.

Where do you want to see yourself in five years?  Owning several dogs and finishing college.

What are your favorite hobbies?  Drawing, skating and listening to music. 

If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask them?  If I could have a conversations with anyone from history, it would likely be George Washington to ask if the rumors I'm hearing are true.
