Olivia Dial-Springville High

Olivia is Navajo and the oldest of five children. Olivia is currently a Senior at Springville High School. In the Summer of 2019, Olivia crowned the Nebo Title VI Princess. During her time as Nebo Title VI Princess, she has served the program diligently. She has volunteered countless hours mentoring, tutoring, and being a positive role model for younger students. After high school graduation, Olivia plans to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and plans to attend Utah State University and major in either Social Work or Education. Olivia is such a sweet and compassionate girl. We have loved getting to know her. Congratulations, Liv. We are so proud of you and all your hard work. You are truly an inspiration to our program and those around you. Keep up the great work! 

Graduating American Indian Seniors
(more pictures available)

Each year, our program holds an Awards Night to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of American Indian students in our school district. This program is intended to highlight students in 6th-11th grade and honor graduating seniors. Administrators, Counselors, Teachers, Parents, and students are invited to be in attendance. This year, we had a wonderful turnout and we are truly grateful for all who took time out of their busy schedules to join us. 

This year, we had the opportunity to hear from three speakers, two of which were Seniors in our school district, and a counselor. Kayden Cruz, a Senior of Maple Mountain gave a wonderful talk about finding balance and positivity amid a global pandemic. Olivia Dial, a Senior at Springville High then gave her talk about she successfully completed high school despite a learning disability. Concluding the program was Antonieta Yazzie, an Intern Counselor at Springville Jr. High, she shared her experience with covid this past year, and how she has found time to slow down and enjoy her family along with having a grateful heart that her father is a covid-survivor. 

Congratulations to all our students for working so hard this year, and being so resilient despite a global pandemic. We are proud of each of you! We are so grateful for the support of our school Administrators, Counselors, Teachers, and Parents. It was a truly inspiring night! We are so grateful for all that came to support these Nebo American Indian students!

Native American Storytelling (Thanksgiving Point)

"We celebrate and honor Native American tradition and heritage at Thanksgiving Point’s Roots of Wisdom exhibit, located in the Museum of Ancient Life, and What’s the Story exhibit, located in the Butterfly Biosphere. Native American leaders from Utah’s tribes will share their traditions of storytelling, and discuss how the original stewards of the land used their science to ensure environmental sustainability. Our Native American partners and our team of entomologists will discuss, compare and contrast the origin stories of invertebrates such as the ant, the butterfly, the scorpion, or the spider, and the Western science perspective on those animals. The event will be held in the lobby gallery at the Butterfly Biosphere and in the Discovery gallery at the Museum of Ancient Life, from 4 pm to 8 pm. Admission to the event is free."
