Congratulations to the Advance Payson Jr. High Orchestra for their performance at the Nebo School District Assessment last Thursday, March 8th. They received a straight superior, which is the highest grade possible. The guest judge was none other than Denise Willey, who got our school's whole string program going here in Payson about thirty years ago, and who we have to thank for our wonderful tradition of excellent string classes in our area.

Spencer is so positive and such a good influence on other athletes. He knows how to set goals, work hard, and then reach those goals. – Mrs. Bragg
