The Uintah High School Student of the Week is Brandon McDonald, nominated by Mrs. Eliza LeBeau. “Brandon comes in as an aide during math to help a blind student,” shares Mrs. LeBeau. “He has gone above and beyond by helping us brainstorm ways to help our student be able to graph. He has taken this to the next level by working with our wood shop teacher to build a graph board out of wood. [He] has done this project in addition to his regular work.” Congratulations Brandon McDonald, Uintah Student of the Week. The Ute Athlete of the Week is girls basketball player MaKayla Parker, nominated by Coach Joe Meanea. “[MaKayla] is a great leader on our team and leads by example by being one of the hardest workers on the court,” shares Coach Meanea. “She also has a great attitude and loves to keep the team laughing and having fun.” Congratulations MaKayla Parker, Ute Athlete of the Week.

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.
