In the early morning hours of Saturday, March 7, 2009, groups of sleepy but intrepid young women from the San Juan School District boarded buses and vans to travel to Utah Valley University in Orem for the annual career day, “Expanding Your Horizons.”

E.Y.H. introduces students to a multitude of careers in math, science and technology. Three of the event highlights were a pet skunk on a leash, dogs in the hallways and a talking parrot!

Olivia Lansing, a faculty member from Whitehorse High School, took three of her students: Celeste Lansing, Tondra Benn and Brandi Silversmith.

Mary Ann Pugh, the counselor at A.R.L. Middle School, accompanied 16 of her best behaved and most serious students: Chisedda Stash, Rebecca Silversmith, Brielle Pugh, Katrisa Ward, Gabrielle Black, Kiera Pugh, Brittany Bleak, Tanisha Bitsinnie, Melaine Daniels, Starla Lee, Katey Pugh, Brianna Pugh, Jennifer Webb, Alea Locklear, Megan Harvey and Liz Meyer. Chaperoning were Candice Holiday and Kline Carroll.

San Juan High School had 13 girls participate. Natasha Anderson, a junior and future veterinarian, remarked “I liked how there were ‘hands on’ activities and I loved that they had live animals! I got to meet people and make friends.”

Another SJHS student, sophomore Pam Smith, said “...I enjoyed learning new things about nursing and the medical field, and the program showed different opportunities we have in life!”
