Up-and-coming figure skater Holly Cook was recognized by the Bountiful City Council recently as an inspiration to her community.

Cook, who recently placed fourth at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Baltimore, was given a plaque and applauded after the council viewed a video tape of her freestyle performance. Mayor Pro Tem Keith Barton said that Cook has been a good representative of the city.The modest Cook, simply told the council "Thank you."

Cook's fourth-place finish makes her the second U.S. alternate on the World Championship Team competing in Paris this month. She will go to the competition if one of the other three top finishers can't compete.
