Serve Daily - - MERIT ACADEMY - By Lana Hiskey

Nebo School Dis­trict is ex­cited to part­ner with the Cham­pion Rodeo team to chal­lenge our stu­dents in the Span­ish Fork area to read.

Span­ish Fork City will host the Cham­pion Chal­lenge Rodeo on June 3 in the Span­ish Fork Rodeo Arena where the top cow­boys in the na­tion will com­pete. Span­ish Fork City ap­proached Nebo School Dis­trict with the idea of team­ing up for a Cham­pion Rodeo Read­ing Chal­lenge. Wayne An­der­sen, Steve Money and Nick Hanks met with Nebo Com­mu­nity Re­la­tions Ad­min­is­tra­tor Lana Hiskey and all the lo­cal ele­men­tary school prin­ci­pals to or­ga­nize this win/win sit­u­a­tion.

The ele­men­tary schools de­signed their Read­ing Chal­lenge around Nebo dis­trict’s “Choose2­mat­ter” theme.

Cham­pion Read­ing Chal­lenge as­sem­blies were held Feb. 27 and 28 and March 1 with 2017 Rodeo Queen McKenna Hales from Mor­gan along with Kevin Higley of Og­den who is the bar­rel man for the Cham­pion Chal­lenge Rodeo this year. Mem­bers of the rodeo com­mit­tee will sup­port the ele­men­tary as­sem­blies as well.

The top stu­dent read­ers will be an­nounced June 3 at the 2017 Wran­gler Cham­pi­ons Chal­lenge Rodeo in Span­ish Fork. The Cham­pi­ons Chal­lenge fea­tures the Pro­fes­sional Rodeo Cow­boys As­so­ci­a­tion’s best con­tes­tants com­pet­ing on the best stock. The chal­lenge is a made-for-tele­vi­sion event and will be broad­cast in June. The win­ning stu­dents will re­ceive tick­ets to the rodeo, Justin boots and other Western cloth­ing items as well as be in­volved in the open­ing cer­e­monies.
