Longhorn pride


Friends of ours, a family with four kids, are considering relocating to Payson. The mother, wanting to check out the schools, was impressed with the elementary and middle schools, but noticed the grounds of the high school were poorly maintained.

She commented to the friendly secretary who was showing her around that certainly the weeds would be gone by the time school started. The secretary said maybe, but probably not.

I find this distressing. Not enough money to pay bus drivers and probably struggling financially in many other ways, but we can’t lose our pride too. We have to do better.

Especially since the district has more money and fewer students. This is a test of priorities by the school board and they are getting a "D" at best at this time.
