Today we had the Sterling Scholars students from Lone Peak High School come and present to our 9th graders. These students explained what the Sterling Scholar program is, and more importantly, their efforts to obtain this recognition. They stressed the importance of starting to prepare for college in the 9th grade, not giving up, and trying your best. Thanks to Mr. Wright for inviting Lone Peak and providing this great presentation for our students!
