Payson Mayor Award - December

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
