SALT LAKE CITY—By a mere three points, Sky View high school’s “We the People” team took home the gold for the fourth year in a row. On February eighth, not only did they earn themselves a trip to Washington, D.C. and the title of State Champion, they defied all expectations.
Sky View principal David Swenson and assistant principal Joel Allred met with parents and students Thursday night at the Newtown town hall. It was the fourth of five cottage meetings — an informal get together where everyone could talk about Sky View high school, it’s future and how it could be improved.
It’s a Saturday morning, and thirty high school students are gathered in a Sky View classroom. Half of them are sprawled across desks, their noses buried in books. The other half are animatedly discussing free speech, federalism, healthcare, and a variety of other government related issues. Any outsider stumbling upon such a scene would scratch their head and ask, “What kind of teenagers are these?” Meet Sky View’s 2010 “We the People” team.
