Jordan Valley School, Canyons District’s facility for the severely disabled, on Friday, May 31, 2013 honored five students for the completion of their education at the school. 
This year’s Transition Exercises, held at the school, 7501 S. 100 East, was attended by family, friends, faculty, staff and members of the District’s administration, including Superintendent Dave Doty, Deputy Superintendent Ginger Rhode, Assistant Superintendent Kathryn McCarrie, and Special Education Director Robin Collett.
Board member Steve Wrigley congratulated the students and encouraged them to keep learning and growing. “Everyone can make a difference,” he told the students, as they sat on the stage in gold and blue caps and gowns. “I am looking forward to seeing the difference you make” in the future.   
Wrigley also lauded the parents of the students. “You parents are my heroes,” he said.  “You’ve held in there and have been (the students’) supports. We all need support … We all need people to be a part of our lives.”
After the students were presented certificates, Principal Mark Donnelly bid the students and their families a fond farewell. “You will be immensely missed at Jordan Valley,” he said.
