Seven of Canyons District’s high school seniors are among the first Utah students to receive Academic All-State Awards in theatre and music, an honor previously reserved for athletes who excel academically.

The Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) has now broadened the list of eligible activities to include sports and the disciplines of debate, theatre and music.

Twenty-one CSD seniors made the Academic All-State list for the winter season– bringing to 47 the total number of 2019 honorees so far in Canyons. Among them, is Brighton High state swim champion Rachel Butler. Recognized as one of the fastest swimmers in Utah, Butler clinched two state titles this year with a record-breaking, first-place swim in the 200 individual medley and first-place finish in the 500 free.

The UHSAA selects students on the basis of their academic achievements and athletic and artistic abilities.
