I went into pay for my gas at Brook­side in Springville, I told the cashier I would like $20 on pump #3. She said, can your tank take $35 in gas. I told her it could, but all I had was 21.27 just enough for gas and a drink. She said, well, that gen­tle­men gave me $35.00 to fill up your tank. I just knew the gen­tle­men made a mis­take, “he was re­ally old” I thought he told her the wrong num­ber.

I ran out and stopped the man and ex­plained, that he had put $35 on pump #3 and I was on #3, he smiled and said, “isn’t that in­ter­est­ing some­one thought that I made a mis­take, when I was just per­form­ing an act of ser­vice for some­one, ev­ery week for 45 years I filled up my wives car, washed it and checked the air and oil. She has now passed on. I just wanted to con­tinue to do it, by keep­ing her mem­ory alive. Please, don’t re­pay me, just do some­thing kind for some­one else, to the point they think you have made a mis­take,” and he chuck­led, “think of my Betty.” I think about that man and his wife Betty and I have no idea who they are and yet I feel I know them. The ser­vice that was given to me that day was far more valu­able than $35. The echo will be ev­er­last­ing. - Traci Worthington Mecham

Melissa treats ev­ery stu­dent, par­ent and em­ployee as if they were fam­ily. She truly has ex­cep­tional lis­ten­ing skills. She treats ev­ery­one with re­spect and com­pas­sion. Melissa is a hard worker and spends many hours of her pri­vate time do­ing things to ben­e­fit Mt. Nebo stu­dents, em­ploy­ees and par­ents. Our coun­sel­ing team would be at a loss with­out her knowl­edge, skill and will­ing­ness to go the ex­tra mile.” Melissa Niel­son, Coun­selor, Mt. Nebo Ju­nior Nom­i­na­tor: Nan Davis

“Many of us took AP Bi­ol­ogy be­cause Coach Green was the teacher. He en­cour­aged us to al­ways be our best. Coach Green’s motto in bas­ket­ball is ‘lady, scholar, ath­lete.’ He wanted us to fol­low that motto ex­plic­itly. He was proud of us when we per­formed well on the court but even hap­pier when we ex­celled in the class­room. Coach Green is a great ex­am­ple. He rarely yelled at the ref­er­ees and ex­pected us to have the same re­spect for the of­fi­cials, the op­po­nents, and each other. At times we would be dis­cour­aged, but he was a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence in our lives. Coach Green pro­vided an at­mos­phere where we not only learned from him but also from each other.” Coach Cory Green, Coach, Maple Moun­tain High Nom­i­na­tors: 2012 Girls’ Bas­ket­ball Team: Kara Betts, Bre Bate, Jayci & Wesli Peay, and Sadie Wil­liams.
