Senior highlight - Alyssa Johnson


On May 22, planning and zoning will be meeting at Honeyville City Hall at 7 p.m. and will be discussing the Mountain Hawk subdivision. All who are interested are welcome to attend.

Honeyville City employees are working hard to make sure both Calls Fort Cemetery and Honeyville Cemetery are looking sharp for Memorial Day weekend. On May 24, you may start to bring flowers, decorations, etc. to either cemetery. On June 3, all wilted, damaged and potted flowers will be removed in order to maintain both cemeteries. If you would like to keep these items, please pick them up before June 3.

With longer nights and warmer temperatures, more children are riding their bikes and playing outside. Please drive carefully and make sure your dog is in a fenced yard or on a leash at all times, as the city has been getting complaints of dogs being mischievous.

Our senior highlights this week is Alyssa Johnson of Box Elder High School.

Alyssa is the youngest daughter of Erik and Julie Johnson and has lived in Honeyville her whole life. She enjoys riding horses and four-wheelers, and traveling. Some of her favorite places to travel are California, Yellowstone, Mexico, and the family ranch in Parowan.

Alyssa has been a member of the 4-H community most of her years growing up. She has shown a lamb at the Box Elder County Fair for many years and learned so much.

Through the years, Alyssa has enjoyed singing and participating in vocal training. She received high ratings at the state solo competitions and strives to excel each day. She tried out for, and made, the Box Elder High Madrigals her junior and senior years. Alyssa is also a member of HOSA, which stands for Health Occupational Students of America. At the 2017 HOSA State conference, her group placed second in Medical Innovation.

Alyssa has been working as a lifeguard and as a desk worker at Crystal Hot Springs for more than two years. This has helped her with communication skills that will help her as she moves on into college life.

Alyssa will attend USU in the fall. She has taken several college credit classes during high school that will count toward her general education at Utah State. She is well on her way to success.
