As part of the Cedar Hills Champions program, the City Council recognized Priscilla Leek for receiving the Huntsman Award for Excellence in Education earlier this year. The purpose of the award is to recognize, inspire, and reward the best teachers, school administrators, and volunteers in Utah for continually seeking ways to improve the quality of education in the public school system. Ms. Leek is one of 11 educators to receive this award and was recognized for her professionalism, creative teaching approaches, and her positive influence on her students. She teaches US Studies, AP Government, Psychology, and Sociology at Springville High School. Each of the award recipients received a $10,000 award and were honored at a banquet in May.
