We just got back from our state FFA contest and our Horse Evaluation team rocked it. They took 4th out of 62 teams! Ashley Rothaug was the 9th place overall high individual and Hannah Smith was the 10th out of about 180 kids! 

If you see the horse team, which is made up of Hannah Smith, Ashley Rothaug, Breanne Henry and Breanna Harding, tell them congratulations. Horse is one of the hardest contests to win, and they sure got close!

Where do you want to see yourself in five years 
I want to see myself going to college after having returned from an honorable full-time mission. 

What are your favorite hobbies?  
I really enjoy music. Whether I'm teaching, listening or playing, I'm happy when music is around me.  If you could have a conversation with anyone from history, who would it be and what would you ask?

Utah High School Film Festival Results

Submitted by tyler.lewis on Thu, 04/20/2017 - 09:05
I am so excited to announce that we had our best year EVER at the Utah High School Film Festival. I've never known a more hard working and deserving group of students. Not only did they deserve it, but they earned it. It was a pretty cool experience for me to see the hours and hours they put into it and see the smiles on their faces as that was recognized at a state level.
