Emily Nelson (pictured second from the left) is the Utah State PTA Volunteer of the Year for 2017. She is recognized for her service and contribution of over 15 years to Spring Creek Elementary and the Provo City School District.
Nelson told Daily Herald, “(Some people) are doing something in their wards or congregations and there’s a huge number of people serving in our city. I thought I’d get involved with PTA. It’s where I found my niche and I’m happy to help.”
Though her three children in the Provo City School District no longer attend Spring Creek Elementary, Nelson continues to serve at the elementary school. She volunteers at Centennial Middle School and at the Provo City School District as well.
Congratulations and thank you for your service, Emily Nelson!
