After 24 years in the district (and 18 years at Canyon, since it opened), Mrs. Higginson is retiring at the end of this year!
Mrs. Higginson always brings a smile to everyone's face, whether it be the students, parents or teachers. She has made Canyon Elementary an awesome place to be!
"I feel so fortunate to have been hired by the Nebo School District in May, 1990 as a secretary at Park Elementary School. I absolutely loved working there with Principal Howard Creer and all of the teachers and staff who have become my life-long friends. In 1997, I transferred to the new Canyon Elementary where I have remained a secretary ever since. I honestly believe I have had the best job in the whole world. I have truly loved all of the students over the past 24 years and loved rubbing shoulders with the faculty and staff there, as well. I loved going to work every singel day. The parents are amazing and have always been so supportive and kind. I have had the privilege of working under wonderful principals: Howard Creer, Garth Bird, DeAnn Nielsen, Jeanne Baadsgaard, and Dave Harlan. I appreciate all that they taught me, their patience and their support. I have also had the privilege of working side by side for many years with another secretary, June Hawkins, who helped make coming to work with her fun personality and her southern drawl, and absolute joy. What a blessing and a wonderful opportunity it has been to work with amazing administrators both district and school, and the phenomenal teachers who I love and respect for all they do for our children. Thanks for 24 amazing years!" -Julie Higginson
We'll miss you Julie! Enjoy retirement!
