VISION AND MISSION:
The Education Pillar wants Wasatch County to be recognized as producing some of the finest youth on the planet.
Heber Valley is working to become the Educational Everest of the country. Besides her natural beauty, her Mount Timpanogos, her beautiful lakes that guard every entrance, we are working to create her most beautiful attraction and the #1 product she produces: THE FINEST YOUTH ON THE PLANET! Exporting the very best youth into the World’s Marketplace will also attract the quality of people to our valley who will help us continue with that vision.
Our Education Pillar Team is currently supporting the UVU Wasatch Campus to establish a new accredited Hospitality and Tourism degreed program, with a Fall 2021 start date. We are also partnering with UVU and Wasatch High School to develop a trades program for the 30% of graduates that do not go on to college.
The Education Pillar was involved in the building of the UVU Wasatch Campus where both the young and the ever-learning in our valley continue to learn. We also assisted the Wasatch Education Foundation in becoming the esteemed student scholarship and teacher recognition program it is today, with local Wasatch High School Senior scholarships totaling more than $250,000 in 2021.
