During an assembly held on November 15, seniors Kevin Torgersen and Rachel Uhl were honored as recipients of the American Legion School Award Medal.
Randy D. Edwards, Command Sergeant Major of the American Legion, Dean Mendenhall Chapter, Post 13 of Provo, presented the students with their medals. The award is based on qualities of courage, honor, leadership, patriotism, scholarship, and service and is given to the most outstanding boy and girl in these categories.
“This is the highest honor awarded American Youth by the American Legion. It is a medal that proclaims to the world you are the kind of boy or girl that we, the comrades of men and women who gave their lives in battle, believe is worthy of such honor. It is our desire that wherever you go, and whatever you do, you will always be guided by the highest ideals.”
Congratulations, Kevin and Rachel, for being such exemplary students!
