Governor visits students in Beaver and Piute counties
April 16, 2015
Gov. Gary Herbert met with students in Beaver and Piute counties yesterday to share the importance of education and listen as they sang and told stories about their schools and communities.
He stopped at Circleville Elementary (students from nearby Oscarson Elementary were also in attendance) Beaver High School and Piute High School.
Students from Circleville and Oscarson Elementary Schools sang the national anthem and other patriotic songs about American heroes. The governor spoke to them about the importance of getting a good education in order to qualify for good jobs.
He also participated in a Q&A period at Beaver High School and was shown around the school by his Chief of Staff, Justin Harding, who is a proud graduate of the Beaver High School class of 1993. The students shared their famous “Beaver Cheer” with the governor.
High school students at Piute HS shared a presentation with the governor that included information about their school and historical facts from their community. They also presented the governor with a baseball hat, making him an, “honorary Thunderbird.”
At the end of the visit, students from both the high school and elementary schools lined the hallways of Piute HS to sing Utah’s state song, “Utah, This is the Place” which they learned and practiced specifically for the governor’s visit.
