Taylor Brewer, Kaylan Young, Payton Webb, Kayden Robertson and Trinity Yazzie participated in the trip, which took place July 14 through July 16. While at the USU-Blanding campus the students learned about high school preparation, college planning and career exploration, time management, money management, and leadership skills. The students were also treated with a San Juan River and science trip.
The students stayed in the USU dormitories and were allowed to visit the campus and classrooms. Some of the students also had the opportunity to visit Utah Valley University throughout the year.
The Educational Talent Search program provides opportunities for students in grades seven through 12 and is designed to motivate and support students to graduate from high school and pursue a post-secondary degree.
