Mr. Burton received the Crystal Apple Award in 2005 and the Drama Don Legacy Award in 2018.

Mr. Burton’s philosophy includes, “I believe that everyone can learn; and that as an educator, it’s my duty to find what works best for different individual students, which can be challenging for an administrator that has 1,400 plus students in a school. But that’s what makes this job so rewarding, helping these young men and women find their personal path to success and helping them stay on it. It’s the best job in the world!”

An administrator said, “Curtis has done a fantastic job. He works well with students. They respect him and still have fun with him. He has had to deal with difficult situations with students and parents, and he performs well under pressure.”

Curtis loves to spend time supporting his kids in their various activities which have included football, basketball, baseball, track and field, cheerleading, musical theater, and dance just to name a few. He personally loves to golf and stay active physically with running and weight training. Curtis enjoys reading, theater, and playing the guitar. He loves supporting his alma mater’s, the University of Utah’s, athletic teams with his family. Curtis is married to Jill, and they have three children.

“I appreciate my parents and all the teachers and coaches in my life who’ve taught me how to deal with the various situations I’ve encountered,” stated Curtis. “There’s one quote that I’ve always loved and tried to live by that comes from the former great football coach, Vince Lombardi, which reads, ‘There is only one way to succeed at anything and that is to give it everything!’”

In closing, Curtis said, “Teaching and working as an administrator in Nebo School District is one of the great joys of my life!”
