As I continue my fourth and final term of high school, I try and remember all the good times I had. Sadly, the truth is I have had more bad memories than good. I am a firm believer that this was caused by not wanting to participate in the various activities offered by the high school. I had the opportunity to attend 3 different high schools including, Timpview High, Salem High, and Payson High. All three of these schools were filled with outstanding school spirit, fun/enthusiastic teachers, and of course, multiple school activities. My mistake?

We live in a world where the majority of all students are glued to their smartphones or some other kind of device. Students are texting and snapchatting all day every day, but they don’t know how to communicate in a business setting.
