As part of the Cedar Hills Champions program, the city recognized four individuals over the past two months. Lois Moessinger and RaLynn Hansen, who work as crossing guards for the elementary schools, were recognized in June. Lois has been the crossing guard for Cedar Ridge Elementary School for 10 years and RaLynn has been the crossing guard for Deerfield Elementary School for eight years. Rarely missing a day of work, both women have been responsible for safeguarding and regulating pedestrian traffic crossing streets and in helping the children of the Cedar Hills community get to school safely.
John D. Lamb was also recognized in June for receiving the Karl G. Maeser Distinguished Faculty Lecture Award through Brigham Young University. This award is the university’s highest faculty honor. In order to be eligible for the award one must be nominated and show a pattern of excellence in teaching, research, and university citizenship. BYU has approximately 3,000 faculty members and honors one each year with this award. Professor Lamb retired in June after 36 years of teaching at BYU.
Chad Lewis was recognized in July for receiving the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award through the Boy Scouts of America. This award is given to men who earned their Eagle Scout Award in their youth and then received extraordinary national-level recognition, fame, or eminence in their profession. Chad currently serves as the NFL’s Ambassador to Southeast Asia and is the Associate Athletic Director – Development at BYU.
