Cody McFarland received the Mayor Youth Recognition Award at Payson City's September City Council Meeting.

We are honored to have Cody at our school. He is a friend to everyone and is always willing to help others. Here is what some teachers said about Cody:

“Cody is a kind, humble boy who thinks of others before himself. He is not afraid to try new things, and he is always willing to go out of his way to help others. He served on Spring Lake Hawk Squad and adults have entrusted him with many responsibilities that others would not want  or be qualified for. Last year he earned the Student of the Year award.  He is an honors student in both English and Math. He is new to our school and he is already very friendly and welcoming. Our librarian has already seen his value and trustworthiness and awarded him with a year-long library pass.”

"I've known Cody for about 2 weeks which may not seem like a lot, but he's made an impact on me.  Our class "get to know you" game was a literal game of Clue.  Students needed to gather information about their classmates and input it into a spreadsheet.  Cody organized his data not only with the written information but also included colors on his sheet.  He organized it in a completely unique way - - it gave me the opportunity to teach the class, using his spreadsheet as an example, that there can be multiple right ways to solve a problem."

Congratulations Cody!
