13 NAMED STERLING SCHOLARS

Published: Thursday, April 14 1994 12:00 a.m. MDT

The names of 13 top scholars and twice that many runners-up were added to Sterling Scholar annals Wednesday night as the 32nd edition of the academic program climaxed.

But for every winner named in the final ceremonies at Cottonwood High School, a half dozen or more Utah students tucked away impressive portfolios and added participation in the Deseret News/KSL program to their high-school laurels."This is a high-profile way to honor scholars. Our athletes, musicians and others have their opportunities to be recognized, but not always our outstanding scholars," said Timpview High School Principal Randy Merrill.

Merrill headed a contingent of teachers and counselors from the Utah Valley school who had come to Cottonwood to see the culmination of several months of intense efforts.

They had plenty to cheer about as the evening progressed. Three of their students took top honors and three more were named runners-up - an impressive achievement in a competition that pits the cream against the cream of each of the high schools along the Wasatch Front. At the end of the evening, it was time for a huge joyous group hug among the Timpview winners and about that many more finalists from the school.

Timpview works most of the school year at grooming winners, Merrill said. Each student who wants to try for Sterling Scholar status gets faculty help. A "club" is formed to help them put together portfolios that will impress judges. The pictures of school winners are posted, and there are dining-out celebrations for those who succeed.

"We want the Sterling Scholars to set a standard for excellence in our school," the principal said.

In all, 195 finalists had their moment in the spotlight Wednesday night - with a few exceptions. Alejandro Sepulveda, Alta, was not present because he was in Washington, D.C., receiving a prestigious national award. Sterling Scholars tend to do that sort of thing. His absence left the winners' podium a little lopsided as the winners in foreign language were announced. He was a runner-up in the category.

Program hosts Kent Norton of KSL-TV and Kay K. Malone, wife of Jazz player Karl Malone, had "foreign language" problems of their own as they tried to pronounce the names of some of the students in that category. A vivacious Dee Sananikone of West Jordan smiled and shrugged her shoulders as her name went through several gyrations. She's used to it. And the winner, Angela Boskovich, also graciously overlooked mispronunciations of her name as she reveled in her top honors in the category.

An astute audience often could spot the winner before his or her name was announced. For instance, a big grin lit up the face of Michael K. Winder, Taylorsville, as the announcers went through a list of the many accomplishments that made him a winner in the social sciences.

Although most of the scholars maintained a staid demeanor, there were those who gave the moment their own stamp. Amber Scott of Kearns performed a little curtsey as her name was announced as a finalist in mathematics, and Carson Dixon of Davis had a little wave for the crowd as he joined other business education finalists on the stage.

Abe Kimball of Pleasant Grove took the artist's prerogative to express his individuality, showing up for the awards event in cap, suspenders and tennies - a little aberration in a crowd dressed to the nines. Regardless, he obviously was dressed for success. He was a runner-up in the visual arts competition.

In the technology education category, which is traditionally dominated by males, two female finalists headed up the queue and brought up the rear - a girl sandwich of sorts. But those two young women, Gina Smith of Clearfield and Jennifer Arnold of Weber, were the runners-up in the group, sharing the winners' podium with Jared Haynie of Hillcrest, the winner.

Entertainment for the evening ranged from the hep hoopla of the Olympus High Jazz Ensemble to the hip-hopping hula of an impressive Kearns High Polynesian dance group - with a mellow melody from the Skyline High Highlites and a toe-tapping dance from the Cyprus High dance company as contrast.

Proud parents, siblings, grandparents, extended family and school supporters were apparent in the audience as the heaviest applause shifted with the naming of winners. Still cameras and video cameras were humming to record the moment for posterity.

John and Shauna Duke were experiencing their first Sterling Scholars awards ceremony. The family moved from Albuquerque, N.M., to Bountiful only a year ago - just in time for Clint, a senior at Bountiful High, to put together an impressive portfolio in the speech/drama category. He was a runner-up.

"We've enjoyed it immensely," said John Duke. "It's great to have something that recognizes academic achievement.

Clint was swapping congratulations with a classmate, Amy Osmond, also of Bountiful, who was still feeling the afterglow of being named runner-up in the general scholarship category. She has set her sights on being a doctor - preferably an obstetrician so she can participate in one of the joyful aspects of medicine.

The Sterling Scholar winners receive $1,000 and runners-up $250, with additional opportunities to tap into scholarship funds provided by Utah institutions of higher education and others interested in promoting the future of outstanding Utah youth.

Two 1993 Sterling Scholar winners, Anna Mohlman, who won in speech/drama, and Kim Wood, a winner in industrial education, were hostesses for the evening, handing out hugs and handshakes along with checks to this year's top scholars.

I became interested in social sciences at a young age. I remember coming home from preschool with a Weekly Reader about the 1980 presidential campaign. My mother still laughs about the time I decided to be a presidential candidate for Halloween in 1980. I enjoyed learning about social studies on my own through reading and have various maps on my bedroom wall. I love geography of both the real world and the worlds I create in my imagination. My goal is to make a positive difference in the lives of others through meaningful service to community, state, nation and the world.

Science

David Lawrence Farmer

Orem High School

Parents: Larry C. and Katherine J. Farmer

Orem

Science has always intrigued me. I am fascinated by history, enjoy music and the arts, and am interested in politics. As a child, I continually wanted to know "how" or "why" things happened. Now, through my education and experiences, I have begun to gain a broader understanding of my previous childhood questions. Probably the greatest factor that has strengthened by interest in science has been the experience in the Hughes Biological Summer Research Program at the University of Utah. Through this experience, I plan to begin work in labs associated with immunology and hope to one day do cancer or HIV/AIDS research. My goal is to benefit humanity by becoming a cancer and AIDS researcher.

SCHOLARSHIP: Ranks 15th in a class of 700. Current GPA 3.98. Scored 33 on the ACT Test.

David is not so concerned with just getting done with a lab or assignment but in understanding it and making sure it is correct. He has exceptional skills for research and his skills will make him productive in his chosen field.

Technology education

Jared Haynie

Hillcrest High School

Parents: Michael B. and Julie Haynie

As a child, I remember my dad working on his old '55 Ford pickup nearly every weekend. I remember thinking how neat it would be to work with him in the grease and oil. These early experiences created my interest for mechanical and vocational education. At Union Middle School I was enrolled in both a woodworking and metalworking course where I was able to apply some of my talent and curiosity. The dedication, hard-work ethic and drive to compete that I've learned through my family - as well as other experiences - have provided a well-balanced background that will help me in all areas of life. My goal in life is to be happy and productive while giving service to those around me.

SCHOLARSHIP: Ranks 1st in a class of 696. Current GPA 3.99. Scored 32 on the ACT Test.

Family, consumer & health sciences

Kerry Kinateder

Provo High School

Parents: Rick and Diane Kinateder

Provo

As a child I remember staying up after everyone had gone to bed to sneak scraps from my mother's sewing garbage. I would take anything I could get my hands on because I loved to sew clothes for my Barbie dolls. Even then, I was fashion-conscious. I remember purposefully placing the stripes on my Barbie doll's skirt vertically and not horizontally - I didn't want her to look fat! As I look back on these memories I laugh. Little did I know that these childish acts would open the door to my future. These skills will not only help me in my home, but in today's ever changing society. My goal is to seize the day.

SCHOLARSHIP: Ranks 32nd in a class of 404. Current GPA 3.92.

Kerry is a young woman who proves this theory. Being extremely bright, she could easily have coasted through high school using very little effort. Instead, she has been motivated to involve herself in a variety of activities. The combination of her unique gifts and her drive have made her outstanding in everything she does.

When I was accepted into the Accelerated Learners Program for Jordan School District during third grade, my father was asked to teach French one day a week. My teacher, Barbara Kreek, taught us German, and I have continued to learn languages ever since. The summer following my junior year I spent with my aunt and uncle learning Serbo-Croatian. I plan to continue to study languages and hope to perfect those I have studied. My future relies upon my ability to speak different languages as I hope to serve this country as a foreign diplomat.

Dance

Julie Hansen

American Fork High School

Parents: Mark and Trudy Hansen

Alpine

When I was seven years old, I joined a children's and teen's dance program at BYU. Tuesdays became the highlight of each week as I ran home from school, eager to go to dance class. I took classes twice a week and began performing. Because of my commitment to dance, I am a more disciplined, dedicated and sensitive person. Most of all, dance enables me to share myself with others. I have seen people affected by the beauty of dance; it is inspiring. To dance is to know joy; I want to share my joy with others. My goal in life is to influence peoples' lives through the art of dance, performing professionally, raising a family and teaching dance at the university level.

SCHOLASTIC: Ranks 142nd in a class of 607. Current GPA 3.72.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: Helped organize a beginning ballet class as a fund-raiser for my community; participated in Interlochen dance; performed in BYU senior and thesis project dances; created several dances for individual choreographic performances.

Her choreography is outstanding as is her performance ability. Her output is of a caliber way beyond her years. This is a remarkable talent who gives generously of her skills on a continuing basis.

General Scholarship

Jarom L. McDonald

Timpview High School

Parents: Kelly C. and Beverly McDonald

Provo

My whole life I have been the same, rushing to do something else, something new. I love being active. I love life when I'm studying physics. I love life when playing frisbee. I love life when singing in the school choir. One of my friends once asked me, "Jarom, how come you are always on such a high? Don't you ever get bogged down in all the stress of life?" I just looked at her, smiled and said, "Life is good!" She laughed and shook her head. I guess she didn't understand.

SCHOLARSHIP: Ranks 23rd in a class of 510. Current GPA 3.98. Scored 34 on ACT test.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: Currently involved in creating a display on optics and the human eye for Vern W. Bangerter Science Exploratorium.

His academic success is the natural result of exceptional intellectual ability, insatiable curiosity and practiced discipline. His motivation is not GPA, but rather the opportunity for discovery which compels him to explore subjects of all kinds. His scholastic record is good, but his test scores are an even better indication of his capabilities. Jarom is as positive an individual as I have ever known. He is quick to point out that life is good.

Speech/Drama

Jamie Lunceford

Timpview High School

Parents: Kenneth and Annette Lunceford

Provo

Quite honestly, if anyone had told me three years ago that I would ever be in the spotlight on stage, I would have laughed out loud. During my childhood, I was always the shy, curly-haired girl in the corner. There was nothing more terrifying to me than presenting myself to a group of people. During the performance of a musical play, I made the discovery that has changed my life. I discovered something magical about the theater in those moments when there is a mutual sharing between actor and audience.

SCHOLARSHIP: Ranks first in a class of 510. Current GPA of 4.0. Scored 31 on the ACT test.

SPECIAL PROJECTS: Organized a musical variety program for local rest homes; took two travel study programs in Russia, with subsequent presentations; volunteers with organization for the handicapped; involved in many charitable events; planned a citywide high school dance for charity; helps elderly with yard work.

LEADERSHIP and CITIZENSHIP: Economic director, Provo Youth Government; Russian Club president and member; student council; Timpview Environmentalist Team; Timpview Drug-Free Committee.

Weber High School

Parents: Curtis and Holly Fuller

North Ogden

I enjoy art and always have. I started drawing and creating when I was very young and have enjoyed and appreciated the praise and encouragement given me by my peers, parents and teachers.

AN ADVISER HAS WRITTEN: Amber is a role model in the department. She is one of the few high school students who is intelligent enough to recognize the possibility and even the "need" to go beyond realistic representational art or that just being a "camera" is not necessarily being an artist. She is truly someone who sees the need to see as an individual and she backs up her feelings with determination, self-motivation and hard work.

Music:

Amy Greenwood

American Fork High School

Parents: Dale W. and Sharon O. Greenwood, American Fork

I began taking piano lessons at age six. My teacher encouraged me and got me excited about music. One unique experience I had was to travel to Moscow, Russia.
