Competing in Chicago, Illinois among 12,000 students in over 70 categories, Weber High’s FBLA Chapter went with high expectations and came home with high awards from this summer’s National Conference.

Indiana Plant, a Weber High student brought home 1st Place and the title of National Champion in the Intro to Event Planning Event. Kyler Ferrin, a recent graduate earned 6th Place in Digital Video Productions and the Community Service Project presented by Raegan Rogers, Alyse Radle, and Indiana Plant took 3rd Place.

Congratulations to all of these students who are led by FBLA advisers Alan Rawlins, Kyle Stanger, and Angie Larsen who are also business/marketing instructors at Weber High.

Only two percent of FBLA students advance to the national level, so just getting there to compete is a great achievement. For students to make finals at Nationals in a presentation event they must be in the top 2 of their preliminary section out of 13-14 students or in the case of Indiana Plant she had to have at Top 15 test score to get to the role play round.

In the Community Service Project event there were 94 teams, while Digital Video Productions had 97 and Intro to Event Planning had 88 teams. Along with these five students, Weber High’s Partnership with Business team also made finals and Top 12, however, did not make Top 10. Sixteen other students besides these eight listed also attended the Nationals Conference in a variety of other events make a total of 24 total who attended the conference with their three advisers.

YouthBuild is a group that provides students that are disconnected from a traditional education to be able to reconnect, gain a high school diploma and gain trade skills. These students built chairs and donated them to North Ogden Elementary. Students that delivered the rocking chairs were Levi Gibson, Eder Charles King, Alex Prescott, Jaxsen Clark, Michael Rodas, James Salas, Christian Johnson and staff William Nielsen, Gavin Leavitt. We love their craftsmanship and celebrate their skill.

WSD Board Names New Superintendent

Written by
The Weber School District Board of Education has named Gina D. Butters as the new superintendent of Weber School District. Gina will be replacing Dr. Jeff Stephens who is retiring at the end of the school year after serving 11 years as superintendent. In July, Gina will become the 15th superintendent of the district which was established in 1905, and the first woman to serve in this capacity.
 
Gina is a “home-grown product” of Weber School District, having graduated from Bonneville High School. She went on to attend the University of Utah where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a minor in psychology, and Master of Education degree in Educational Studies.
 
She started her teaching career in Weber School District, where she also coached girls’ basketball. She went on to serve as assistant principal at Roy High and Bonneville High, principal at North Ogden Jr. High School, later becoming the principal at Roy High. In 2016, she was selected to serve as the director over Students Services, and in 2019, she was chosen to be the Executive Director of Secondary Education.
 
While serving as principal at Roy High, Gina was a team leader in the Roy Cone Project. She has also served on many other community-oriented task forces and committees. During her almost 30-year career, she has received multiple honors including the prestigious Huntsman Excellence in Education Award.
 
Gina is a focused, optimistic leader centered in the whole-child approach to education. She is a strong communicator, experienced educator, and passionate advocate for all children. Her student-first philosophy truly inspires confidence and trust, and Weber School District will be in wonderful hands moving forward.
 
The selection of Gina Butters as the district’s new superintendent comes after a nationwide search conducted by the WSD Board of Education. In January, the board sent out a survey to employees and parents asking them to identify the qualities they felt were most important in a superintendent.
 
Using the results from this survey, the board worked closely with the Utah School Boards Association (USBA) in creating the announcement of position. During the application period, UBSA received ten applications from qualified candidates from around the state and country.
 
In February, a special Citizens’ Committee was formed to review and evaluate each candidate’s application materials. This 24-member committee was composed of local community members, business leaders, and representatives from within the district. The committee met in mid-February to evaluate the candidates, and the results were presented to the Board of Education for consideration in determining the top candidates to interview for the position.
 
On February 17, the board conducted interviews with four highly qualified candidates from within the district and out-of-state. Gina Butters was chosen as the top candidate to replace Dr. Stephens and to lead the district. The decision was formally announced by the board of education during their board meeting on March 2, 2022.
 
Weber School District comprises 45 schools which serve over 33,000 students throughout Weber County. It is the 8th largest school district in the state of Utah.
 
Two other administrative appointments were also made during the meeting. Dave Hales was promoted from Elementary Supervisor to Executive Director of Elementary Education. Mary Jo Williams, who has been serving as the principal of Orchard Springs Elementary, has been selected to serve as the Elementary Supervisor.

Lakeview celebrates all the holidays

Written by

We are celebrating all the holidays in December! On December 3rd, it was "National Roof Over Your Head Day". We discussed why we need a roof, how roofs keep us safe, and then how a roof is built. Students thought like engineers and designed their own roof. Then, they used graham crackers, frosting and candy to build their own gingerbread house roof!

Weber School District honored with three commendations this year for having the best of the best statewide

This week the State of Utah presented the U-RISE award to Weber School District’s Mike Evans in our maintenance department.

This award is the third statewide commendation this year to go to Weber School District: Utah Superintendent of the year Jeff Stephens, Utah Teacher of the Year Mark Daniels, and now the U-RISE recipient Mike Evans.

We think our school district is amazing, but when officials in the Governor’s Office as well as the Utah State Board of Education take notice of our great people and programs, it is a proud moment.

This triple-crown achievement for Weber School District in 2021 is shared with all those who are part of a great organization that do amazing things every day for children. When we all work together to put children first in each decision, everyone wins. It’s the Weber Way.
