Dinosaur National Monument School Partnership

As agents for Dinosaur National Monument, Davis Elementary 4th graders have taken an active role in an effort to save endangered fish locally. According to Davis Principal Rick Johnson, Ms. Biggs 4th grade class is once again raising Razorback Suckers in their classroom and at the end of the year the class will go on a field trip to release the fish into the wild. The Razorback Suckers are only native to the Colorado River Basin and the effort to preserve their species is taken seriously. The Razorback classroom project is a hands on opportunity for students to raise an endangered fish species in the classroom, shares Ms. Biggs, who says the project incorporates teaching of science, art, language arts, math, communication skills and preservation and conservation of our local area.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
