Congratulations to the following students who represented Mt. Nebo Junior High School in the Great Kids Awards given by the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. Each student was given $100.00 from the Utah Community Credit Union and numerous gifts from various community sponsors. 

Hayden Heaton is the son of Shelley and Rodney Heaton. Here is what his teachers wrote in his nomination:

Scott McFarland, English Teacher: Hayden is a joy to have in the classroom. He balances studying graphic novels with complex literature like "The Good Earth." Hayden is not afraid to try new things. He is creative and dynamic. He is a leader among the students. Hayden will take charge and show his fellow students what needs to be done.

Sierra Hotchkiss, Science Teacher: Hayden is a respectful and kind young man. He is always willing to work with any student either to help them or working in a partnership.  He always says “hello” when he enters the classroom and has a smile on his face. He is an example to his peers and lives what he believes.  He is a hard worker and excellent student.

Kaylee Torres is the daughter of Jamie Jones. Here is what her teacher wrote in her nomination:

Amber Capell, Math Teacher:  Kaylee is a beautiful 7th grader with a smile that brightens a room and eyes that invite conversation. She is kind to those around her: lending pencils, helping with problems, sharing food, including less popular students into her group, and always being positive. Kaylee is always picking up garbage, straightening desks, or organizing things to make our classroom a happier place. Even without being prompted, Kaylee volunteers to work with and explain math to one of the students who needs some extra attention. She is never seeking the lime-light; she just loves others and seems to see the best in them. I appreciate her example and hope she continues in her passion and integrity!
