Uintah High School Student of the Week

The Uintah High School Student of the Week is color guard member Rachel Powell, nominated by Coach Wendy Girot. “Rachel is one of the color guard captains this year,” shares Coach Girot. “She is a great example in all that she does. Rachel is a good leader and works well to help improve the skills of the new members of the color guard.” Congratulations Rachel Powell, Uintah Student of the Week. There is no Ute Athlete of the Week as sports are now between seasons. Also in school news, students have November 23rd through 27th off for Thanksgiving break. Everyone enjoy the holiday and travel safe!
