As the school year starts to end, we get to see the fruits of the students labors.  This year was no exception of the caliber that the ALC and its students bring to Nebo School District. They never cease to amaze us with the oustanding things they have done over the course of the school year.

One of these examples came to pass this past week during the Utah Digital Media Arts Festival at UVU. Our amazing students from both, Mr. Arnold's class, and Mr. Powell's class came home with most of the awards!!

The students and the peices they entered are as follows:

Caitlin Slade in Ms. Keetch's History Class, was excited when they started talking about the Vietnam War. She was excited because she has grown up hearing stories about that war, and she knows personally, a very special person, who gave time out of his life to serve our country in that horrible war.  That special person is her grandfather, James Slade.
