Derk Hatch and his hardworking crew are getting credit where it is due as the group recognized this week by Team Uintah. Many of the people in the Uintah Basin are familiar with Derk Hatch. “Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of colorful stories about Derk as well,” shares Uintah School District Superintendent Mark Dockins. “I’m pretty sure 100 percent of the stories are true.” Derk is well known for his sense of humor and practical jokes. He is also known for his giving heart and willingness to do whatever he can to help those in need within the community, shares Team Uintah. It’s that spirit of service that makes Derk and his staff at the Uintah Conference Center, Western Park, and the Ice Arena a key part of Team Uintah. The staff helps with numerous District events throughout the year including Tournament of Champions and the high school rodeos. Congratulations and thank you to Derk Hatch and the staff of the Western Park and Uintah Conference Center, for serving local school kids so well.
