Youth School Board meets with Nebo School Dis­trict Board of Ed­u­ca­tion

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Lana Hiskey

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. Pic­tured on the back row are: Sec­ondary Direc­tor John DeGraf­fen­ried, Nebo School Dis­trict Board of Ed­u­ca­tion mem­ber K.L. Tis­chner, Board Vice Pres­i­dent Shan­non Acor, Su­per­in­ten­dent Rick Nielsen, Board Pres­i­dent Kristen Betts, and board of ed­u­ca­tion mem­bers Dean Rowley and Randy Boothe.
