Uintah Student/Athlete of the Week

The Uintah High School Student of the Week is senior Sarah Jones, nominated by Mr. Richens. “Sarah is a fabulous student,” shares Mr. Richens. “She is a science club officer and placed at state last year in the Science Olympiad...She spent a significant amount of time over the summer working on a project in conjunction with Ashley Drinking Water. This project involved determining the zeta potential of the water in the streams that feed into the drainage for Ashley Drinking Water.” Congratulations Sarah Jones, Uintah Student of the Week. The Ute Athlete of the Week is soccer player Whitney Walk, nominated by Coach Brian Calder. Coach Calder says what sets Whitney apart is the measure of her heart. “Whitney loves the game, and more than that, she loves her team,” shares Coach Calder. “She can often be seen on the field making her contributions by way of skill and determination, but the scope of her influence goes beyond simple athletics. Off the field, on the bench, or from the training grounds, her influence is felt.” Congratulations Whitney Walk, Ute Athlete of the Week.
