Business & Digital Media CAPS (Center for Advanced Professional Studies) students have been involved in a major rebranding effort for Salem City. Students have been busily creating slogans and new logos for Salem City's fleet vehicles, as well as other Salem City digital and print communications. A presentation of these designs was delivered by ALC student Sydney Ward, a Business CAPS Project Manager, on Wednesday, October 16th at the Salem City Council Meeting.

On this Boss' Day we are grateful for our principal at the ALC, Ben Ford.
Ben is universally admired by the faculty and staff of the school. He brings with him more than 20 years of educational and administrative experience, which is quite apparent in the daily operation of the school. Ben is each teacher's biggest advocate, allowing them to focus on student success. As the ALC opened its new building, he was instrumental in cultivating the welcoming culture that allows our students to thrive.

On October 9, 2019, 6 girls who attend the ALC were invited to take part in the 12th Annual Women Tech Awards. It was held at the Grand America Hotel. The girls who were in attendance were Madison Heaton, Jade Poulson, Rebecca Whyte, Katie Solorzano, Rachel Durfee, and Kaylee Bishop.
The counselor, Ms.Natalie Grant went to a lot of work to make sure that the students here were well informed about all of the college options that are out there for the students here at the ALC. She had guest speakers, tons of swag and lots of information to give them. She visited the English classes and helped walk them through the process of applying for colleges. All in all, this week was a huge success.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK MS. GRANT!!

Young Women from across Nebo School District were able to experience a unique celebration of Ada Lovelace Day at Qualtrics in Provo, Utah today. As part of Women’s Leadership Development at Qualtrics, students were invited to educate themselves in career opportunities and growth for women in tech fields.
A college education is the KEY to your future, which can be anything from a one-year certificate to a four-year degree and beyond. This week at the ALC, we are hosting our Utah College Application Week (UCAW), which acquaints all our students with the importance of preparing for and attending college.
At the ALC, we are specifically helping our seniors in our ENGL 1010 courses, to complete and submit at least one college application, as well as learn about college admissions, scholarships, and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
On Saturday, October 5, A group of 20 girls from the ALC along with our architecture teacher and pilot, Ms. Adriane Wilson, and our CTE specialist, Mrs. Ronda Hair met at the SCL airport to join a group of 120 girls from all over the state of Utah to take part in the 2019 WING flight. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for these girls.
They alternate a different state to be picked to go on this flight, so it was such a privilege for Utah to be chosen this time.
Ms. Ronda Hair took 3 of our ALC students to the Adobe I-Heart-Tech Conference that Adobe hosted recently.
There were close to 350 students who attended.
The workshops were based on STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education. In a robotics workshop, students faced several programming challenges. The final task was to have their “mBot” robot follow a curving black path. The team with the fastest robot advanced and raced other teams. The coveted prize was Fitbits for the fastest bot.
