The Mayor of Moab and the faculty and staff of Helen M. Knight Intermediate School have named Josh Jones as the recipient of the Mayor’s Citizenship Award for January. 

Jones, a fourth-grade student, is the son of Ryon and Traci Jones. 

The staff and faculty of HMK described Jones as “a great student and an excellent athlete,” and also said he was given the honor, in part “for being a good friend.”

Staff members also said that Jones “has a competitive spirit, yet has a strong sense of understanding for the underdog.”

Moab Mayor Dave Sakrison and the Moab City Council presented the award to Jones at the Jan. 26 council meeting.
