Tavah DeHart – 9TH GRADE
Mt. Nebo Jr. High School
Tavah DeHart, a 9th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, has been nominated to receive the Payson City’s Mayor’s Award for the month of March.
One teacher wrote that “Tavah is quiet, but always doing what she’s supposed to be doing. When she asks a question, it’s an important one that everyone should hear the answer to. She is a calming influence on a class”.
Another teacher stated that “He hasn’t had her as a student, but she and her teammates did well at our science fair and moved on to the District Science Fair. She is a very kind person and I’ve heard many good things about her”.
Tavah is an accomplished athlete. She loves playing tennis and was on Mt. Nebo’s tennis team her 7th and 8th grade years, doing very well. She competed this year (9th Grade) for Salem Hills High School.
“Tavah is an excellent student here at Mt. Nebo Jr. High. She is respectful and conscientious in her classes. She treats teachers and peers kindly and she possesses a sweet disposition that allows others to be her friend. She works hard academically and she is diligent about keeping up with her work. She consistently performs well in her classes and makes an effort to be successful” states another teacher.
Tavah has served on Mt. Nebo Student Council for the past 3 years. She is dedicated and always willing to help out with anything that the council is doing. She is proactive and when she sees a need, Tavah does it without asking. Tavah is a role model for all that serves with her. She makes other feel important and helps them feel good about themselves. She has been co-chair for several activities that the student council has been in charge of and as the advisor, I’ve never had to worry about if the activity was going to succeed or not. She comes early to school to make sure that everything is ready to go. Tavah is a tremendous leader. I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to get to know her.
Mt. Nebo Jr. High is lucky to have Tavah at our school. She is a delightful person and a joy to be around. She will be a success in life because of her dedication and determination. We feel that she is very deserving of this honor and award.
