Counselors Attend SUU Conference!

A couple of our counselors were able to attend the annual SUU "Counselor Days" Conference this past weekend to learn of the new and upcoming things happening at SUU.  Southern Utah University is taking great strides to create a close-knit college feel, while still offering big University opportunities.  One of the biggest changes SUU has recently implemented is their Scholarship Index.  They have initiated a new scholarship index where the test score is optional for scholarship consideration.  Upon a student applying, the University will take the student's GPA or ACT/SAT score (whichever one better benefits the student). They have also provided an appeal process in which any individual student who feels that based on their school workload can appeal for a higher tiered scholarship. The University is really wanting to take into account course rigor and is therefore providing this appeal process.  SUU has worked tirelessly to still offer fun on-campus activities while abiding by CDC safe guidelines.  For students interested in attending SUU, they will still be offering student life experiences (such as their Red Riot).  Please see the attached image for Red Riot Dates which will allow students to enjoy a campus tour, a T-shirt and a night in student housing.  If your student has any further questions in regards to SUU, have them visit with their counselor! 

 

College/Scholarship Awareness for Seniors

Please read this very insightful message from our awesome counselors!     We encourage all Senior Students to look closely at the institution they are considering to attend after high school as Academic Scholarship requirements have drastically changed on account of Covid-19. For example, instead of a scholarship matrix consisting of both a GPA and an ACT Score, some colleges are only requiring one or the other. However, because this will make Academic Scholarships more attainable in some cases, some institutions will be capping the amount of Presidential Academic Scholarships that will be awarded.  Therefore, it is imperative that students apply to colleges early so they don't miss out on financial opportunities.      Remember that it does not hurt to apply to multiple colleges, even if your student is not sure where they want to attend.  If students want assistance with applying for colleges, our Utah College Application Week will be the week of October 5th.  This is a time where College Reps will come and help students with any questions they have with the application process, and some colleges also waive their application fee at this time.  Again, we recommend checking the colleges you might be interested in to know what the academic scholarship requirements are, when the deadline is, as well as if there is a cap on the amount of scholarships they will be awarding.  Please see your counselor with any questions.

Spanish Fork FFA sent nine student's applications to be judged at the national level.  We received word yesterday about how those applications did. 

The National FFA Agriscience Fair recognizes student researchers studying the application of agricultural scientific principles and emerging technologies in agricultural enterprises. The agriscience fair is for middle and high school students.   Three of our students competed in the agriscience fair competition.  Rylei Voorhees and Landen Olsen were named finalists in their respective categories. They will now move on to compete at the virtual National Convention this year.  

  • Rylei Voorhees - finalist in Food Products and Processing Division 3. Rylei studied the effect of dry aging of rib primals on tenderness and flavor. 
  • Landen Olsen - finalist in Animal Science Division 1. Landen studied the effect of pelleting feed on rate of gain in turkeys. 
  • Ashley Olsen - bronze in the Animal Science Division 3. Ashley studied the effect of feeding high Omega feeds to turkeys and if that transferred into meat. 

The Agricultural Proficiency Awards honor FFA members who, through their supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs), have developed specialized skills that they can apply toward their future careers. Students can compete for awards in almost 50 areas covering everything from agricultural communications to wildlife management. Spanish Fork had six state winners that moved on to the national level.  Ellie Ash was named a national finalist. She will receive a $500 cash prize and will now interview to see if she will become the winner.

  • Ellie Ash is top four a national finalist in the Equine Science Entrepreneurship category. Ellie's project includes raising mustangs for local wild horse challenges, giving riding lessons, and training horses for clients. She was able to grow her project from giving a few riding lessons to having clients willing to pay her for training. Ellie plans to continue this as a career and is currently apprenticing under a trainer. 
  • Lance Jensen received a gold ranking (top 7) in the Agricultural Services category. Lance uses dermestid beetles to prepare skulls for European mounts. Lance has done a variety of skulls including deer, elk, moose, and more. Lance plans to continue this business as a side job as he works towards a degree in Agricultural Education. 
  • Wade Coombs received a gold ranking (top 8) in the Nursery Production category. Wade works at Hansen's Plants were he is the main person in charge of watering. In addition he helps with planting, customer service, and sales preparation. Wade plans to use the skills that he has learned to help him with his landscaping business that he plans to continue. 
  • Russell Mangelson received a silver ranking in the Agricultural Education category. Russell is a livestock ambassador who helps to put on camps and learning opportunities for youth throughout the state of Utah. In addition Russell has given lamb showmanship clinics and works with a few families. Russell plans to use his skills and start his own business in agriculture. 
  • Tanner Voorhees received a silver ranking in the Diversified Agriculture category. Tanner works for Circle V Farms and Circle V Feedlot. In addition he raises turkeys, sheep, cattle and pigs for show and sale. Tanner plans to use the skills he has learned and the relationships he has developed to become an electrician. 
  • Megan Stewart received a silver ranking in the Small Animal Production category. Megan started her project with an accidental litter of puppies. This litter made her want to raise dogs and she has since purchased a stud and two females to breed. Megan plans to use these skills to continue raising dogs while pursuing a degree in agriculture.

We congratulate these students for their hardwork.  We can't wait to see what Ellie, Rylei and Landen will accomplish at convention in October.
