Canyons Board President Named Elected Official of the Year

tracy_cowdell_1Canyons Board of Education President Tracy Scott Cowdell has been named Elected Official of the Year by Sandy City for his leadership, community service, and vision for Utah’s first new school district in a century.

Cowdell received the award Feb. 1, 2011 at the Sandy City Appreciation Awards Banquet at the South Towne Expo Center.

“The Cowdell name represents some six generations of a family that has called Sandy home. It is also a name that has been associated with volunteer, civic and political leadership in the city,” Sandy Mayor Tom Dolan said in presenting the award. “Tracy has dedicated enormous energy and commitment to the success of the Canyons School District. His vision is that the Canyons School District will not only become the best school district in Utah, but will also achieve national acclaim. He remains a strong supporter of Sandy City, and under his leadership, new and emerging partnerships have been developed between the City and School District.”

Elected to the Jordan Board of Education in 2006, Cowdell became a member of the inaugural Canyons Board of Education in 2008. His fellow Board members have twice elected him to serve as Canyons Board President. He also has served on the Sandy Board of Adjustment and the Sandy City Community Development Block Grant Committee, and is a former chairman of the Sandy Elementary School Community Council.

Mayor Dolan and the Sandy City Council host the annual awards banquet to honor volunteers dedicated to improving the quality of life of Sandy City residents.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
