Earlier this year, our principal, Mrs. Kimball won a state award. She was nominated by the administrators for the title of Middle-Level Principal of the Year! (“Middle-Level” meaning the Jr. High level.) She was rewarded with a Snoopy trophy and a trip to Washington D.C. with her husband. All of the award winning principals from every state were there, too.While she was in D.C., she and her husband met with Utah’s senators, Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee to discuss education in Utah.

We asked her how she felt when she won. She said, “I was surprised and humbled. There are a lot of great principals in the state. Winning this says a lot about the people I work with. You can’t do it yourself; the kids help make the school great!” Mrs. Kimball has done a wonderful job getting our new school up and running. We, as students, feel that Mrs. Kimball definitely qualifies for Principal of the Year because she genuinely cares about her students and works hard for us so we can get a better education. We are lucky to have her as our principal. We are proud of you, Mrs. Kimball!
