Cheridyn Prochnow, daughter of Brian and Cheryl Prochnow, has been chosen as Morgan High School’s General Sterling Scholar.  Cheridyn has contributed to the high school by participating in choir, FBLA, DECA, and Academic Olympiad.  She has been a member of the Troyette Drill Team and the cheer squad, currently holding the position of Cheer Team Co-Captain, and has served as Freshman Class Vice President and the Interact Service Club Public Relations officer.  Her favorite class in high school has been chemistry because it has so many real-life applications.  She loves participating in outdoor activities such as hiking, running, and four-wheeling; doing jigsaw puzzles; people watching; and doing unexpected things.  She is proud of being voted “the person you want to be stranded on an island with”.  Cheridyn’s most memorable high school experience was, without a doubt, skydiving!  Cheridyn will be attending Utah State University and majoring in biological engineering.

The Morgan School District brought in consultants to inform them how to get their tax levy approved.  They are certainly following the plan developed and strongly advised by Rich County and that is to bombard and propagandize the public with “it is all for the students, the students will suffer and be deprived unless we have more money.” Even one of our school board members has stated that the district may have to declare “bankruptcy” unless the levy is passed.  It appears to me that the district has learned very well from our present national political organizations and that perhaps even Obama could  probably pick up a few pointers from the school district and the school board.

The machines were all different shapes and all different sizes, but they all were able to scientifically do work using one or a combination of the six simple machines.  The projects ranged anywhere from catapults, to dog feeders, to homemade mouse traps.  It was a great event to take part in.
