Hillcrest, Corner Canyon Students Win Big At Sterling Scholar

It was a golden night for three Canyons District students at the 2016 Sterling Scholar Awards.

A Hillcrest Husky and two Corner Canyon Chargers walked away big winners at the yearly academic-excellence program sponsored by the Deseret News and KSL Broadcast Group.

Hillcrest High’s Anthony Cheng was announced as the top mathematician – and the overall general scholar – in the 54th annual competition, and Corner Canyon High’s Sadie Chidester and Camden Seeborg won in the Skilled and Technical Sciences and World Languages categories, respectively.

Three other Canyons students also earned honors in their categories. Helen Schroder, a senior at Hillcrest High, was announced as a runner-up in English; Jared Sagae, a Corner Canyon Charger, was a runner-up in Business and Marketing; and Hillcrest’s Alexandra Palmer was a runner-up in vocal performance.

A whopping 22 CSD students hailing from all five of the District’s traditional high schools were named as finalists in this year’s Sterling Scholar Award competition. Students vying for recognition in the contest were judged on their academic achievements as well as their leadership and service efforts.

Awards are given in 14 categories – English, mathematics, social science, science, world languages, computer technology, skilled and technical sciences education, family and consumer sciences, business and marketing, speech/theater arts/forensics, visual arts, dance, instrumental music and vocal performance.

More than 1,000 nominees from 80 schools participated in this year’s Sterling Scholar Awards Program. Each category winner receives a scholarship. Fifteen universities, colleges and business and technical schools also provide scholarships to winners and runners up.

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!
