The Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit (MYLS) is a one-day conference that brings together students, educators, and community and state government leaders from across the state. The goal of the MYLS is to provide participants with an inspiring experience to stimulate educational success and help shape the leaders of tomorrow. Approximately 30 of our own Diamondbacks were able to attend this conference and learn from many great examples of what it takes to be a leader!
Seven of our amazing 9th grade Diamondbacks took a field trip to past Diamondback Faculty Member Jeff Cook's pumpkin patch - they picked a truckload of pumpkins (1800 pounds) to donate to the food bank in Provo. What an awesome act of service. We are so proud of our amazing students here at DFJHS!
