Nebo School District’s Ryan McGuire named Principal of the Year

Ryan McGuire is the principal of Mt. Nebo Middle School, a new middle school in the Nebo School District, and has been named Principal of the Year for 2021. 

McGuire received his bachelor’s degree in history from Brigham Young University in 2000 and a master’s degree in Education Administration from Southern Utah University in 2007. 

McGuire served as principal of Springville Junior High for five years, as assistant principal of Payson High for five years, and was the assistant principal of Payson Junior High for two years. He taught Spanish and history at Spanish Fork High for three years, and Spanish and history at Spanish Fork Middle for five years. 

He has also coached basketball throughout his teaching career, including head coach for girls’ varsity basketball while at Spanish Fork High. 

McGuire has earned past recognitions including a Nebo School District PEAK (Positive Energy And Kindness) Award in March of 2018, Region IV Coach of the Year in 2006, Nebo Notable for Nebo School District in 2006, and was recognized for teaching excellence at Spanish Fork Middle in 2000. 

McGuire feels that the best award he has ever received is a hand drawn picture of a knight, from one of his severe/profound special needs students, that reads, “Mr. McGuire – You’re a Superknight!” 

When asked about his personal motto, McGuire shared a favorite quote: “The two most important days in someone’s life is the day we are born, and the day we find out why.” 

McGuire added, “I believe that education helps students figure out that why. I love education and being involved in my community and the lives of students. I hope to make a positive difference each day for kids,” McGuire said.

Ryan enjoys spending time outdoors and fishing of any kind. He is married to Trudy, and they have four children. (Serve Daily submission.)
