Payson High Salutatorian: Belen Moyano

By: Ryan Shumway and Audrey Miller

Payson High’s 2010 salutatorian is Belen Moyano. Daughter of Gloria and Jose Moyano, she received the H.O.B.Y. Scholarship (Hugh O’ Brian Youth Scholarship) after competing against 50 of Utah’s top students. As a junior in high school, she took three Advanced Placement classes while participating in two high school choirs, acting, and performing with Payson High’s Dance Company. Moyano has been in over 15 play productions, of which only two of them were dramas and not musicals. As a senior she’s taken two AP classes, Physics and Calculus, and has continued to be active in her other activities and clubs. Belen loves pudding and Facebook, and is looking forward to beginning her college career at USU.
