EPHRAIM MIDDLE SCHOOL
The school recently held its annual Run for Your Life 5K. Nearly 200 students participated. “It was a beautiful fall morning for a run with amazing Sanpete views. The very best of these views from my vantage point was nearly 200 students enjoying some healthy physical activity together and completing something difficult,” Principal Tim Miller said. Top finishers were: (boys, l. to r.) Talon Rasmussen, Tyler Taggart and Trevor Taggart, and (girls, l. to r.) Keltsy Fowles, Bethany Christensen and Hannah Zedicher.
