Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Bryce Walker

Jan Searle of American Leadership Academy in Spanish Fork was recently recognized as the charter school business administrator of the year.

During her nine years of service at American Leadership Academy, she has been instrumental in the growth and expansion of the school’s enrollment from 1225 students to 1825 students. She has also been responsible for providing all financial services and state reporting.

American Leadership Academy has recently expanded their campuses and received the highest bond rating available to charter schools. As a result of her financial management, ALA qualified for the state credit enhancement program.

The principals of the elementary school, jr. high and high school have all noticed that ALA’s financial resources are continually improving. Commenting on this fact, Kimberly Searle, Assistant High School Principal (no relation) said, “Jan Searle has played a vital role in putting more money into the classroom for the advancement of student learning and academic performance.”

Director Rich Morley said, “Mrs. Searle’s recognition as business administrator of the year is well-deserved, and accentuates the wonderful work and commitment she has provided to American Leadership Academy over the years.”

Mr. Morley made a surprise announcement of the award in front of all the faculty and asked her to come to the stage. “Thank you,” she said. “But this is really because of all of you. I couldn’t do my job without the help of my co-workers and all of you.” The audience applauded and cheered Mrs. Searle on her much deserved recognition.
