2017 Graduates Moving On
Grace Bown, the 4th of five daughters (and one son) of James and Paula Bown, not only graduated top-of-the-class at Dixie High School but was also named Valedictorian. She was also named to Academic All-State which recognizes students who have excelled in the classroom as well as in athletic competition. With over 85,000 students participating in high school activities, this award is the most prestigious honor the UHSAA presents to senior students. This well-rounded young woman plays volleyball, piano and maintains a 4.0 gpa and states her most memorable high school experience involves the whole journey to becoming valedictorian.
Hannah Kerr, oldest of Charlie and Sarah Kerr’s four offspring, has now graduated from Dixie High School where her grades earned her scholarships to her choice of either Dixie State University or Southern Utah University. Her future plans include a semester at DSU, after which she hopes to serve a fulltime mission. Her most memorable high school experience is – unquestionably – being part of DHS's two time winning Utah state championship drill team!!!
Aspen Honey Bair, one of three B7 Ward graduates and 3rd of Bishop Mike and Lori Bair’s four children, was also recently awarded Dixie High School’s 2017 Atlas Award Female Athlete of the Year. The main criteria for her selection was participation in multiple sports. Aspen has played volleyball, basketball, and track and field at Dixie High School for 4 years. She has been an ambassador for the past two years at Dixie High and her academic GPA puts her on the high honor roll and earned her several scholarships. She will be attending Dixie State University in the fall and will be DHS’s 9th grade volleyball coach this coming year.
Congratulations to these amazing young women!
