Seldom do students and teachers practice gratitude and self-analysis like in our Latinos in Action...
The Provo Way award is a significant achievement, recognizing individuals who demonstrate excellence in their work, are positive role models, and positively impact our community. Amber Egbert, an Instructional Assistant at Oak Springs, embodies these qualities wholeheartedly; she’s demonstrated a commitment to the student’s success and well-being, providing academic and emotional support to students needing aid. She puts students first, helping students meet their potential with warm but firm expectations.
Deputy Probation Officer Yvonne Oteo offered Amber’s initial nomination, and Provo City School District’s Administrator of Alternative Education, Travis Cook, shared a few words during her award:
“Amber has been with us at the Utah State Hospital for eight years in a variety of roles over the years. As the transition specialist for a while, she’s now back in the classroom. Her students adore her.
“The fact of the matter is that Amber is the first one to step up when an opportunity to help students is at hand, and she does an excellent job building relationships with our students.
They know you by name and appreciate you. They know you by voice and by action. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Amber with us, and she is so deserving of this recognition.”
Thank you for your service, Amber, and congratulations on your award.
