One of our UNHS families has been honored with an invitation for their daughter to represent Utah Track and Field on the Western Conference Team, competing in the 2014 Down Under International Games.
The games will be held this summer on the Gold Coast of Australia. Alexia Stash, daughter of Valencia and Jerome Stash, has been invited to participate. Alexia is a 10th grade student at San Juan High School, in Blanding. She is a life-long resident of Blanding, also attending Blanding Elementary and Albert R. Lyman Middle School.
She participates in cross-country and track. She's won medals in both sports and has been outstanding enough to be invited to the Down Under Games.
Alexia is in the process of raising funds to help pay for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity she's been offered. The family is planning fund-raising events and they would also invite members of the community who can help with any donations to do so.
Valencia has been employed at UNHS for 12 years as a certified Medical Coder. Jerome has been employed at Redd's Mechanical, in Blanding, for over 28 Years.
Anyone wishing to make a donation to help Alexia can call 435-459-1685 or 435-651-3817. Also look for information regarding fund raising activities to be held for Alexia. We congratulate her on being invited to the Down Under Games, and wish her luck in all her efforts.
