FOA UNGOR:  UVU

Did you guys enjoy the Keys to Success Assembly?  Best assembly of the year!  Where else do you get to watch students win fabulous prizes, teachers race on trikes, humans inside hamster balls, and great dance moves.  Hands down, though, my favorite part was the scholarship awards (although Jonathan Cox’s dance moves were a close second)!  These scholarships will give Jason, Miranda, Crystan, and Foa a great start on their college education and training.  Way to go guys!  Best wishes, high fives, hugs, fist pumps, and confetti and cake for all of you!

I posted a few pictures on Twitter (link on the bar on the right)…love the one of Mrs. Syra’s and Mr. McCluskey’s high five.
