Utah Governor Spencer Cox visited Payson School on his educational tour on Wednesday, April 19, 2023. He met with all of the student leaders and was available to answer questions.
Governor Cox talked about growing up in a small town and his vision for the future of our great state of Utah. He took a tour of the school and even had to visit the famous Footloose locker.
At the school assembly, Governor Cox interacted with a student panel and answered questions that are important to our student body. The student panel consisted of Joshua Laker, Emma Mathews, Bre Jardine, Kelsey Argyle, and Oscar Menjivar. Each student came prepared with a question for the Governor and were able to receive advice and answers.
When the Governor was asked about his advice for graduates going into the workforce, he said to not stress too much. The key is to work hard with determination and that the future is bright.
When the Governor asked the students what was the best thing about their school, they said, their peers, faculty, student body, many opportunities, and friends.
The student panel told Governor Cox that you don’t have to be afraid of teenagers, you can expect more from us, we can do it, we have unified hope, and we are a kick-butt generation.
After the panel discussion, Governor Cox was able to leave the students with some great advice such as “There is no substitute for hard work,” “Be recklessly good,” and “You never have to tear someone down to get ahead in life.” Governor Cox’s messages left the Payson High students feeling encouraged and excited for the future.
Thank you so much Governor Cox and his staff!
