Brent Richardson, President of the Weber School District Board of Education, passed away yesterday after a valiant battle with cancer. Brent was an Ogden native, graduating from Ogden High School in 1967. After high school, he enlisted as a member of the 19th Special Forces Group, and after serving his country, he returned to Utah to attend Weber State College. He obtained a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and later went on to manage several successful businesses in the Ogden area.
During his career, Brent served on numerous boards including the Ogden Weber Chamber of Commerce; School of Technology, Weber State University; and the Board of Trustees of the Ogden Weber Applied Technology College.
Brent had served on the Weber School District Board of Education since 1999 and as Board President since 2009. Under his stewardship, three successful bonds were passed which led to the building and renovation of many schools throughout the district. The combination of Brent’s expertise as an entrepreneur, ingenuity, passion, and continual community involvement, helped craft Weber School District into what it is today.
Representing Precinct 3, the patrons of South Ogden and Uintah cites, and all children throughout Weber School District, President Brent Richardson’s leadership will be greatly missed!
West Haven Elementary shows their support for the American Cancer Society by hosting their annual Hawk Walk. West Haven students walked in this mini Relay for Life and America First donated $5.00 for every student who walked between 7:00 and 8:00 AM. In addition to walking for a cure, students collected donations from family and friends. The Hawk Walk concluded with a survivors walk to honor our Hawks that have fought and beat cancer.
Kimberlee, a 6th grade student at Kanesville Elementary, had amazing achievements at this year’s science fairs. She won first place at the school science fair, and then won first place in Chemistry at the district science fair. She also won a Broadcom Master’s Award at the district fair. Kimberlee also attended the regional Ritchey Science and Engineering Fair, and won first place in Chemistry there as well! Her project was titled "Blood Glucose Challenge." She tested several people of different ages to see if age had an effect on how quickly sugar is metabolized. She did this by having people drink a sugar-filled soda, and then tested their blood sugar at regular intervals for the next hour. Kimberlee was even able to tell someone to go to the doctor, where they were diagnosed with diabetes, based on this project! She is amazing!
Students were asked to recognize a problem they have experienced and then invent something to fix that problem. The kids had to keep track of what they used and what they expected the invention to do. Parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles were invited to come see all the inventions and ask the kids about them. It was a very fun event. Read more to see pictures from the event.
For the 3rd year in a row, Green Acres Elementary will send students to the World Robotics Championship in Kentucky. This year two Green Acres’ teams qualified: Minute to Win It and Crossfire Blue. At the championship they will have the opportunity to collaborate with other robotics teams from all over the world. This is an incredible opportunity for our students. If you’d like to help these students get to Kentucky you can donate at the school. Green Acres is a Bronze STEM Designation School. The robotics after school club is part of their Science Technology Engineering and Math emphasis.
