Youth School Board meets with Nebo School District Board of Education
A highlight for the Nebo School District Board of Education is to meet with students from each of the high schools and junior high schools on a quarterly basis. Each Youth Board representative is selected by his or her principal to be a spokesperson for their school.
The Nebo school board took this opportunity to ask the Youth Board students questions concerning college and career readiness, technology and one-to-one devices, and readiness for mathematics.
An advantage of these group discussions for students is to learn from each other and implement successful ideas in their own schools. This sharing opportunity promotes friendships between the schools in our Nebo School District that is growing by about 650 students each year with over 32,000 students this year.
Members of the Nebo Youth Board included (front row in no particular order): Josie Nelson and Zach Gowans of Payson High, Kenny Van Ausdal and Rachael Black of Salem Hills High, Preston Adams and Peggy Sorenson of Springville High, Josh Jensen and another Josh Jensen of Maple Mountain High and Oyati Tubby and Colin Speers of Landmark High.

Tischner, Board Vice President Shannon Acor, Superintendent Rick Nielsen, Board President Kristen Betts, and board of education members Dean Rowley and Randy Boothe.
