Kennedy Ercanbrack – 9TH GRADE
Mt. Nebo Jr. High School
Kennedy Ercanbrack, an 8th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, was nominated to receive the Payson City Mayor’s Award for the month of January. Kennedy is a kind and considerate student at MNJHS. We are thrilled to have her receive this award from the Payson City Council.
Here's what some of Kennedy's teachers had to say about her:
Kennedy is a smart, resourceful student. Kennedy immediately grasps concepts with ease and always provides thoughtful insights to class discussions. She is an accomplished student and a dedicated friend to her classmates. It is a pleasure to have her in class.
Kennedy has a plethora of great qualities: she is kind, intelligent, friendly to everyone, and she demonstrates great leadership. But the most impressive trait she demonstrates is that she is fearless. In choir it is an intimidating experience to audition for a solo. And, even though she is so nervous she sometimes shakes, she has never missed an opportunity to audition. It is an impressive use of courage. I am proud to have her in Women's choir.
Kennedy has a scientific mind. She loves to push questions to explore the world around her. Her persistence and determination to gain answers to her intriguing questions serves her and others around her well. Kennedy's ideas are inspirational. It is a pleasure to be her teacher.

Abraham Figueroa – 9TH GRADE
Mt. Nebo Jr. High School
Abraham Figueroa, a 9th grade student at Mt. Nebo Jr. High, was nominated to receive the Payson City Mayor’s Award for the month of December. Abraham is a hard working student at MNJHS. We are thrilled to have him receive this award from the Payson City Council.
"Abraham is an exceptional young man. Although new to our school this year, he is friendly to everyone. Teachers, students, and others involved at Mt. Nebo Junior High comment on his willingness to work, his kindness, and his can-do attitude. Abraham is conscientious about his learning and grades. He completes all assigned work, including extra credit, on time. He fixes mistakes on assignments and tests to help him understand better. Although Abraham is focused on doing his best, he is also willing to help others achieve. Fluent in both English and Spanish, Abraham patiently works with other Spanish-speaking students to help them understand the math. Because of his dedication to learning, his compassion for others, and his commitment to being his best, I expect to see Abraham do impressive things in his life!" - MNJHS Faculty Member
