Representative Patrice Arent was inspired by Luke Parker—a student at Upland Terrace Elementary who regularly waves a sign at adults in idling cars during school pick up—to launch a campaign where the scripts are flipped and students educate adults on idling. His ingenuity in creating a way to remind people to play their part in preventing pollution reminded her that students often speak with the clearest voices, especially in issues where adults are sometimes forgetful.

Each week for the past sixteen years, KSL  Newsradio and Zions Bank have sponsored a program highlighting teachers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Each week hundreds of nominations are sent to KSL where a panel of judges from Zions Bank, the State Office of Education and KSL Newsradio help select the well-deserving teacher. This program, known as “Teacher Feature,”  is announced each Tuesday morning as part of KSL Newsradio’s Grant and Amanda Show. This week Morgan was honored when Morgan Elementary school’s own first grade teacher Mrs. Christine Tyrrell was picked.  Monday afternoon she was highlighted in an assembly to focus on what a wonderful  influence she has been. Zions Bank representative, Dennis Porter, was very excited to be able to present this award as they grew up in Morgan together.
