Nominate for American Indian Leadership Recognitions

“We want students to be recognized for their efforts. When students are recognized for the good things they’re doing, it’s positive reinforcement, and it strengthens the possibility that they’ll maintain their efforts — or raise the bar.” – David Shirley, CSD Counselor on Special Assignment

Join us in nominating an American Indian high school student to be recognized for their achievements at the 15th annual American Indian Leadership Recognition event. Students can be nominated for recognition in a combination of areas, including:

– Academic achievement
– Arts
– Athletics
– Community projects
– Cultural recognition
– Leadership
– Scholarship
– Service learning

Submit your nominations here.

The American Indian Leadership Recognition event, “Seeing Through Native Eyes,” is scheduled for Saturday, April 19, at Granger High School, 3580 S. 3600 West. The event gets underway at 1 p.m., and includes speakers from the State Office of Education, Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake, and other organizations.

Canyons School District’s Office of Student Advocacy and Access collaborates with the American Indian Community on a number of projects and events, including Native American Heritage Month/Indigenous Day; Academic Collaboration of American Indian Students (ACAIS); Native American Family Nights; Navajo Government class at Jordan High; Artists in Residence; Indigenous Storytelling Festival; and the annual CSD Senior Honor Night.

CSD also congratulates Corner Canyon junior Alex Moushey, recipient of the 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Youth Leadership Award. The award, bestowed by the University of Utah Alumni Association and Office of Diversity and Equality, is awarded to Utah students in grades 7-12 who show a dedication to the beliefs of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. For Moushey, the award recognizes his commitment to serving the community through the ACAIS program.

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!
